C8 Section Re-Organization, With Our New “Mid Engine Exterior/Interior Pictures, Videos and Renderings” Section

MECF members asked for our segregating pictures, renderings and videos into one area; looking ahead, that section will become our most viewed area once you get your C8’s. Pre-existing threads that fit are now being moved. Thank you for the suggestion!

  • NCM Sinkhole 5th Anniversary

    Five years ago today the sinkhole opened up inside the National Corvette Museum and swallowed eight Corvettes. All of the cars were recovered but only three of them were in good enough shape to be restored, the black 62, the one-millionth Corvette C4, and the C6 Blue Devil.

      Thanks Brad66. Always sobering to see those cars again. Five years. Wow. Here’s a video with a little discussion of that day; thanks Mike Furman@Criswell for bringing this to our attention.

      So many questions about the ME right now, but the answers are nicely, though slowly, coming out.

        This is part of the Documentary.



        There are hundreds of plant worker signatures inside the 1 million C4, they were able to save/restore all except one - in the full Documentary they showed her (retired now) coming in and signing the last piece.

          Thanks for finding/sharing that video C8-wannabe! When the first one started right up, that was an emotional moment when I saw that five years ago and was again re-seeing it today.

              I little fun by the Corvette Cafe (inside the Museum). How about a special dessert to mark today’s anniversary? You get to take your toy Corvette home with you.
