Devastation at National Corvette Museum

Posted on February 20th, 2014 by Goldman Buyer

Eight valuable Corvettes on display at Kentucky’s National Corvette Museum were swallowed by a 40-foot wide sinkhole last week. The estimated value of damage is in the millions.

The museum, about to celebrate its 20th anniversary and open a Motorsports Park in August, is the place to visit for Corvette enthusiasts, housing more than 70 unique models. Below are the eight that fell:

  • 1962 “Black Corvette”
  • 1984 PPG pace car
  • 1992 “1 Millionth Corvette”
  • 1993 ruby red “40th Anniversary Corvette”
  • 1993 ZR-1 Spyder
  • 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 Corvette
  • 2009 ZR1 “Blue Devil”
  • 2009 white “1.5 Millionth Corvette”

All other vehicles in that room have been removed, besides one – which is hanging on a riser straight above the sinkhole. Workers are setting up ramps to safely remove it. The museum hopes to start repairs as soon as possible.

Customer Testimonial

Had a Great Experience

"I recently worked with Chicago Gold Gallery to design an engagement ring. From picking out the stone to designing the setting, it was a wonderful experience to say the least. Thank you so much for your help!"

Can't say enough about this place.

Recently took my family of 4 for a week to Chicago for a family vacation. We were on a limited budget but being lifelong Cub fans I thought it would be a great treat for my kids ages 7 and 10 to go to a game that we hadn't planned for...

Love this place!

Chrissy & Joe are all super friendly and easy to work with. I trust them and they will do whatever they can to help you including giving you advice on what you have or what you should look for. I won't ever go anywhere else and I've recommended it to several friends.

I would do business with them again

I had a diamond ring that I wanted to sell and they gave me top dollar for it. They were so nice and I would do business with them again.

Don't Hesitate to call...

I find that Joe at Chicago Gold Gallery consistently offers and pays more for my coins than coin dealers in Chicagoland. He's very nice and easy to deal with. Don't hesitate to call him and preferably visit him.
