How Do You Pull Historic Cars Out of a Sinkhole? Find Out in Real Time.



You may remember that a few weeks ago the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Ky. was the extremely unlucky host of a giant sinkhole right in the middle of their showroom.

Thankfully, no person was injured, but the 25-30 foot sinkhole swallowed no less than eight Corvettes.

This week began the extraction of said Corvettes, including the first one out -- a ZR1 "Blue Devil" that was driven out of the showroom in good condition.

You can watch them pull out more Corvettes over the museum's live cams, including this one (which should show highlights during any down time):

Let's hope the automotive gods are smiling upon the operation and you're able to see more classic cars drive away from the scene.

Chevrolet has offered to help restore the Corvettes pulled from the sinkhole.
