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.

Corvette Museum's Blue Devil Corvette ZR1 to be Restored by GM in September

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.

It’s not quite the 8-second Blue Devil promised in the title, but this Corvette ZR1 is very fast and produces massive burnouts.

Debunking a Stupid Rumor about a Special Series of 2014 C6 corvette ZR1s

Checking the news this morning after a long weekend, I found this story on AutoSpies.com proclaiming that Chevrolet isn’t quite done with the C6 generation ZR1 yet. For 2014 and 2015, Chevy will still be offering not only the ZR1 in C6 form, but a special edition that’s been modified to run a 0-60 mph in 2.65 seconds and has a quarter mile time of 9.7 seconds at 140.2 mph.

Rare Corvette ZR1 Heads to the Block at Mecum's Houston Event

A ZR1 coupe, one of the rarest Corvettes ever produced, will cross the block in Houston at Mecum’s three day auction April 10th through 12th. The 1972 Corvette ZR1 is one of only twenty produced and one of less than ten actual numbers matching production cars known to exist.

The Elkhart Green with saddle interior award winner is fully documented and has two tank stickers and is part of the Bloomington Gold Special Collection. With only 16,300 miles the car has the matching numbers LT1 engine, M22 “Rock Crusher” 4-speed transmission, J56 and F41 heavy duty brakes and suspension. It will cross the block on Friday, April 11, at Houston’s Reliant Center.

[VIDEO] The First of Eight Corvettes is Rescued from the Corvette Museum's Sinkhole

This morning at the National Corvette Museum, construction workers successfully lifted the first of the eight fallen Corvettes from the massive sinkhole that opened inside the Sky Dome last month. The first Corvette to make it back to street level was the 2009 Corvette ZR1 Blue Devil which had landed upright on top of the pile.

The news that a huge 40 foot wide sinkhole opening up under the National Corvette Museum has shocked many of us. After watching much of the activity and videos from the Museum yesterday via social media and webcams, we thought it appropriate to now take a closer look at those eight Corvettes which fell into the cavern under the gold skydome.
