National Corvette Museum
We’ve apparently learned the fate of at least one of the eight Corvettes swallowed up by the sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum in February.
The museum has announced that the 2009 Blue Devil ZR1 prototype – the property of General Motors and among the least damaged by the sinkhole – will be heading back to GM for restoration after the NCM’s upcoming 20th anniversary celebration on Labor Day weekend. No one has said where the Blue Devil will be displayed after repairs are made.

With attendance and revenue soaring over last year, thanks to the sinkhole in February that swallowed eight classic cars, the National Corvette Museum Board of Directors decided today to pursue keeping a smaller portion of the hole open, pending further study.

The option the board chose seems to be a good compromise for all sides.
