Updated (4/3/2014): 7 ‘Vettes Out, 1 To Go at National Corvette Museum…See Before and After Pics Here!

 

Eight Corvettes may have fallen through the floor at the National Corvette Museum, but overall interest in the museum has gone through the roof.

Since a well-publicized sinkhole swallowed eight Corvettes on February 12, the museum has seen a pronounced spike in traffic. According to Deb Eaton, guest services manager for the museum, February 13 through March 13, 2014 has brought about 700 more visitors than the same time period in 2013.

Eaton told WBKO in Bowling Green, KY that visitors are stopping by to check out the sinkhole and the five Corvettes that have been pulled from it so far.

“They see the first one and you hear, ‘Oh, that’s sad.’ As the cars are in worse shape leading up to the fifth car they extracted, you hear physical moans and they’re in pain for them. I saw a lady today who was actually in tears and shaking,” Eaton told the TV station.

Construction crews are working to remove the remaining Corvette (2001 Z06 with Mallett Hammer conversion) from the hole. You can get updates on the National Corvette Museum’s Facebook page and see before/after pics of all seven “rescued” Corvettes below.
