One of eight collectable Corvettes swallowed by a sinkhole at a museum turns back on. (SOUNDBITE) BOB HELLMANN OF THE NATIONAL CORVETTE MUSEUM, KY "We cranked it and it started right up for us- that's incredible... It was very exciting and that- something I'll treasure for the rest of my life. I'll tell you. It was good." It was all caught on surveillance camera. A rescue operation pulled the rare 2009 "Blue Devil" from the rubble -- surfacing with only minor scratches and cracks. Officials say it landed on its wheels. That wasn't the case for the 1993 Ruby Red. The classic cars fell into the 40-foot wide sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum last month. Chevrolet plans to restore all of the cars back to life.
