LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Work is underway to restore one of the prized Corvettes damaged nearly 16 months ago when a sinkhole opened beneath the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

The 1 millionth Corvette is being restored at the General Motors Design Center in Michigan. The white 1992 Corvette is the second of three sinkhole-damaged Corvettes that Chevrolet has pledged to restore.

General Motors officials say the restoration crew is part of GM’s Mechanical Assembly group at the Design Center, which typically spends its time building prototype and concept vehicles.

In all, eight cars were swallowed by the massive sinkhole at the museum. Five of the vehicles were too badly damaged and will be displayed in their dented and crushed conditions as part of a future sinkhole-themed display at the museum.
