BOWLING GREEN, Ky. - The last of eight classic Corvettes gobbled up by a giant sinkhole in Kentucky has been recovered, but the mood was sombre as the mangled car was pulled to the surface.
The 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 Corvette was buried in dirt and rocks, dozens of feet below the surface of the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green. The man who donated the car to the museum, Kevin Helmintoller, says the vehicle looks like a piece of tin foil.
The prized cars were swallowed by the sinkhole that opened up in February beneath part of the museum.
