Repairs have begun on the gigantic sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Eight Corvettes were swallowed up when the hole suddenly appeared in the domed section of the museum. Structural engineers will begin to remove pieces of the walls to get a crane inside to pull out the damaged Corvettes. SOUNDBITE: MICHAEL MURPHY, CONSTRUCTION FIRM CEO, SAYING: "We'll dig around it. We'll do whatever we can do to lift them out and not damage them anymore than they already are." Chevrolet has agreed to restore the valuable Corvettes worth as much as one million dollars. SOUNDBITE: UNIDENTIFIED PERSON, SAYING: "You can see a couple others peeking through, but there are two cars that they don't even know where in the dirt they are at this point." Workers will be able to pull the cars out starting in early March once the massive sinkhole is secured.
