In February 2014, Wheels24 reported that a massive sinkhole opened beneath the US National Corvette Museum in Kentucky and swallowed eight iconic cars.

Chevrolet has taken on the job of restoring the classic Corvettes. GM's head of global product development Mark Reuss said the damaged vehicles are some of the most significant in auto history.

Reuss said the automaker wants to restore as many of them as possible so fans can enjoy them. Chevrolet said the the restoration process will take place in Michigan.

The sinkhole consumed eight prized cars on February 13 when the museum was closed. Six of the cars are owned by the museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and two are on loan from General Motors.

The cars include a 1992 white 1-millionth Corvette and a 2009 white 1.5-millionth Corvette.
