3rd Corvette plucked from Ky. museum's sinkhole

Workers have plucked a third Corvette from a giant sinkhole that swallowed eight classic cars at a Kentucky museum.

More painstaking work lies ahead to retrieve the five cars still buried deep in the hole beneath the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green.

Progress continued Tuesday when a 1962 black Corvette was extracted by a crane.

John Spencer, a manager at the GM Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, says the car has body damage but can be repaired.

Museum spokeswoman Katie Frassinelli says four cars are still buried under dirt, rubble, rock and concrete, while another is wedged in the hole.

She says those cars will remain trapped until workers further stabilize the sinkhole. That work could take two or three weeks.

The first two Corvettes were recovered Monday.
