Corvettes Swallowed in Kentucky Sinkhole Not Made in Flint
Whew! Eight Corvettes that were damaged when a giant sinkhole opened up in Kentucky have no connection to Flint where the first versions of the classic sports car were made.
According to MLive, researchers at the Sloan Museum’s Buick Automotive Gallery in Flint say none of the cars damaged were made in Flint or passed through here.
A giant sinkhole had opened up underneath the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky on Wednesday. Among the cars damaged were a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder, a 1962 black Corvette, a 1992 white Corvette that was the one millionth produced and a 2009 white Corvette that was the 1.5 millionth made.
The first 300 Corvettes were made in Flint in 1953 before production headed to St. Louis and then to Kentucky.
