Corvette Museum Making Plans to Capitalize on Sinkhole Problem

Feb 22, 2014

The cliche about turning lemons into lemonade is being realized at the National Corvette Museum, where two of the eight Corvettes swallowed by a sinkhole still can’t be seen. Outside the Skydome, which is home to the sinkhole, there are stacks of carpet tiles that once covered parts of the floor.

“They are going to sell them,” Mike Murphy said Thursday while showing the Daily News around the hole, which is up to 50 feet deep. "We've had people tell us that they would pay for some of the rocks or a piece of concrete that we might recover."

Three, possibly four, of the eight Corvettes that plunged into a sinkhole last week at the National Corvette Museum will be recovered early on in the process. The other four vehicles will be more difficult to recover, according to Mike Murphy, CEO of Scott, Murphy & Daniel. Murphy on Wednesday pointed out features of the Skydome's sinkhole to the Daily News.
