Corvettes and Dodge Ram pickups are a common sight here in the States but over in Norway we have to think they are an uncommon sight.

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.
