Construction workers successfully lifted the first of the eight fallen Corvettes from the massive sinkhole that opened inside the Corvette Museum’s 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.
Utilizing a number of straps, workers secured the Blue Devil Corvette to one of two cranes inside the building and lifted the car out of the sinkhole around 11:30 am Monday morning.
After the Corvette touched down on the concrete floor, the Blue Devil’s supercharged LS9 roared to life and was driven outside under its own power. A remarkable moment to say the least.
