ZR1 Blue Devil Corvette Recovered from Skydome Sinkhole

It was a catastrophe indeed and that too a costly one. A sinkhole in the Skydome of the Corvette Museum caused eight luxury sports vehicles to be lost in the damaged space created by the mishap. Some of the cars had quite steep rates and so the damage will cost the museum a lot in terms of legal tender. Today, the first one of these means of transportation has been brought out of the pit. 

It is none other than the ZR1 Blue Devil Corvette. What was remarkable was the fact that the Blue Devil was still functional despite considerable damage. It started moving with an expert in the driving seat the moment it arrived safe and sound out of the mess. This was a miracle and a source of joy for the rescue team at the museum.

Like the Blue Devil another car, the ZR-1 Spyder, was also among the mechanical casualties. And it too was manufactured by General Motors. And while, the Blue Devil is pretty much intact, it will be overhauled and revamped just to be on the safe side. Chevrolet will be in charge of the scanning process. The eight vehicles will hopefully be brought up from the enclave and restored to their former glory. 

Then people will get to stare at them in envy in the museum once again. There is one vehicle that is very difficult to recover since it has a stone slab on top of it. Two cranes will have to operate simultaneously to remove both the impediment and the vehicle from the sinkhole. The destroyed portion of the Skydome will be rebuilt according to an inexact schedule. After all, such jobs take some time and they are not easy to accomplish.
