GM will Oversee Restoration of Corvettes that fell into sinkhole, building can be saved

A very strange happening occurred this week when a massive 40-foot wide sinkhole developed right underneath the National Corvette museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The sinkhole swallowed eight historic Corvette cars with some of them taking a beating under piles of debris inside the hole.

USA Today reports that GM has stepped up and said that it will oversee the restoration of all of the cars that fell into the sinkhole. The cars still sit inside the sinkhole right now, but once they are retrieved, they will be sent to the GM Mechanical Assembly facility.

"The vehicles at the National Corvette Museum are some of the most significant in automotive history," Mark Reuss, executive vice president of General Motors Global Product Development said in a statement from his offices in Warren, Mich. "There can only be one 1 millionth Corvette ever built. We want to ensure as many of the damaged cars are restored as possible so fans from around the world can enjoy them."

Mechanical Assembly is the facility where GM sends historic concept cars to be restored. All of the cars that fell into the sinkhole were on display at the museum Sky Dome complex. Another question that has been on the minds of people familiar with the situation is what will become of the museum building.

Museum officials have hired engineers and they say that the building suffered no structural damage during the incident. The building will be repaired. There is no indication of exactly what it will take to repair the deep and wide sinkhole at this time.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
