[VIDEO] Corvette Museum Now Offering a DVD Documentary on the SkyDome Sinkhole

The National Corvette Museum’s sinkhole which swallowed eight Corvettes earlier this year not only shook the Corvette Nation, it also captivated the world as replays of the floor dropping out from under the Corvettes reverberated throughout various national and international media outlets.

It could be argued that the worst thing to ever happen at the Corvette Museum was also the best thing that ever happened to the NCM. Stories of the sinkhole appeared on over 2,000 broadcast outlets and the publicity from the more than 7,300 tv and radio hits was valued at $15.4 million. And with all that media running, attendance levels spiked over 60% in the months that followed with onlookers who wanted to see the hole that ate the Corvettes.

General Motors to Restore Three of the NCM Sinkhole Corvettes

Chevrolet and the National Corvette Museum have announced their game plan for restoration of three of the classic Corvettes damaged when they were swallowed by a sinkhole inside the museum in February.

Two of the cars – the 2009 Corvette ZR1 prototype nicknamed the “Blue Devil” and the 1-millionth Corvette produced (a 1992 white convertible) – will be repaired by Chevrolet, which will also pay for the restoration of the black 1962 Corvette to be overseen by the museum.

The Ron Fellows Performance Driving School at Spring Mountain has been named the “Official Performance Driving School of the National Corvette Museum” and “Official Partner of the NCM Motorsports Park.”

The announcement came last week during the museum’s 20th Anniversary Celebration that also featured thousands of participants in the National Corvette Caravan.

Corvette Museum to Fill Sinkhole and Restore the SkyDome

Since the National Corvette Museum is a non-profit organization, the decision on what to do with the sinkhole in the Skydome ultimately came down to money.

After giving initial signs a few months ago that a portion of the sinkhole would remain as a tourist attraction, the museum’s board of directors voted Saturday instead to fill the hole and restore the building to its previous condition.
