Correction of the info on the 1961 Vignale Coupe

An inside man corrected me on the 1961 Vignale Coupe:
"Concerning your text 'The body was designed by Gordon Kelly via the Brooks Stevens design firm': this is almost correct. While it is true that the body was designed by Gordon Kelly and he worked for Brooks Stevens at that time and for a few years more, it was entirely a personal moonlighting project, not associated with Brooks Stevens."

Thanks for the info!

Sinkhole disaster in National Corvette Museum

The National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green received a call at 5:44am from their security company alerting them of motion detectors going off in the Skydome area of the Museum. Upon arrival it was discovered that a sinkhole had collapsed within the Museum. No one was in or around the Museum at the time. The Bowling Green Fire Department arrived on the scene and secured the area. The Fire Department has estimated the size of the hole is 40 feet across and 25-30 feet deep.

The museum reported that eight Corvettes were affected by this incident. Those cars include:

1993 ZR-1 Spyder on loan from General Motors
2009 ZR1 “Blue Devil” on loan from General Motors

The other six vehicles were owned by the National Corvette Museum including:

1962 Black Corvette
1984 PPG Pace Car
1992 White 1 Millionth Corvette
1993 Ruby Red 40th Anniversary Corvette
2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 Corvette
2009 White 1.5 Millionth Corvette

None of the cars affected were on loan from individuals.

As the cars came out one by one, the extensive damage became visible...
