Mini-documentary follows aftermath of Corvette Museum sinkhole

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A new film portrays new images of the damage and emotional words from Corvette enthusiasts affected by a sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum.

The short documentary was posted on the museum's Facebook page Friday, detailing the incident in Bowling Green that left eight collector Corvettes trapped in rubble.

Five of the vehicles were pulled out this week, including the PPG Pace car and the one-millionth Corvette.

The first pulled-out, the 2009 ZR1 Blue Devil, was removed with relative ease and surprisingly started.

Enthusiasts who have visited the museum since the sinkhole formed reminisced about the popular cars in the documentary.

"To see it in a whole new light is a wave of emotions, ultimate lows and it'll be highs when we get the car brought back to life," said insurance agent Adam Boca, with the National Corvette Museum. "You are just heartbroken, and we are Corvette owners and we get emotional about our cars, but these are beautiful pieces of art and beautiful machines."

Workers will now stabilize the sinkhole and the spire, and then remove the remaining three vehicles which could take several weeks.
