On Thursday at the National Corvette Museum, workers lifted the seventh of eight Corvettes lost in the sinkhole back to solid ground. The recovered Corvette was the 2009 1.5 Millionth car and was only discovered last week after workers vacuumed enough dirt out of the hole to reveal its location.
An excuse for us to finally post these awesome gifs!
This morning, workers at the National Corvette Museum were able to rescue the one of a kind black Corvette ZR-1 Spyder from the massive sinkhole inside the Skydome. The Corvette was retrieved with the crane and sat on a flatbed where it was wheeled around to the other side of the museum. There, it was unloaded and put back into the museum next to the other five Corvettes that were previously rescued from the sinkhole.
Well, nobody’s perfect – not even the highly acclaimed 2014 Corvette Stingray.
At least in the eyes of one European auto journalist, Jethro Bovingdon, who seems to have mixed emotions about the seventh-generation Corvette in his video post test for EVO magazine.
Last week at the National Corvette Museum, workers repairing the sinkhole began vacuuming the dirt inside the hole where they thought two of the three remaining Corvettes were resting. On Friday, the NCM posted a new photo of what they are saying is the edge of the hood from the 2009 1.5 Millionth milestone car.
Who would have thought there would ever be a time when we’d be talking about great fuel economy with a high-performance car with an automatic transmission?
But these aren’t ordinary times, at least when it comes to the seventh-generation Corvette.
Two great high performance Corvettes recently debuted in Europe: the Z06 and the C7.R racing vehicle. http://www.chevroleteurope.com/corvette
They were developed in parallel and provide unique benefits to both race car drivers and driving enthusiasts.
Race car driver Oliver Gavin, Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter, and Technical Communications Manager Patrick Herrmann discuss these two great vehicles.
