Would not be surprised to see them all restored.
ZR1 and the 62 actually look pretty fair.

I would. Have you seen them? Oh wait.. You can't because they're buried under dirt, slabs of concrete, and other Corvettes.

The ZR1 and 62 will be fine.

Couldn't even imagine being one of those owners. It appears from the photos the integrity of the entire structure may be compromised. Hopefully they are planing a strategy to remove the remaining cars first, before they loose more.

This was totally preventable. I've worked in this area Installing caisson foundations down 100+ feet to prevent failure of structures in case a sink hole develops.

Also they're constructing a racetack up there along side the museum.

Two of the corvettes were on loan direct from GM.

Just terrible. Unbelieveble. We have events with our club there every year and are so looking forward to the motorsports park opening. It is a blessing that it happened at night so no one was hurt.

Can we now have a moment of silence........................................... ....................

The local news just reported that the museum is actually going to be open tomorrow, just not in the area where the sinkhole is. That is really surprising to me given how that sinkhole looks in the pics & videos. I know I would not want to be there tomorrow.

Watch Six of Chevy's most important part of history get sucked up by sink hole

WATCH it has it happens as Six prize Vehicles on loan from Chevy get sucked up by a sink hole,cars so important to Chevy's history that they were never to be sold....First ZR1 produced Gone...so say the reports ..some may be gone forever,and others may be able to be saved,but they will never be the same or hold the same Value since they were all in original factory never titled condition. Sad sad day...

Some of those shots do not look 30 feet deep. They look like they go forever.
