A few weeks ago we brought you a story about 8 priceless corvettes that were swallowed by a 60-foot-deep and 40-foot-wide sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky. Well the good news is they’re back! A rescue mission has been underway, three of these museum exhibits have been hoisted to safety, and while obviously battered and bruised after their ordeal some of them are still running!!

The 2009 ZR1 Blue Devil which is a once off prototype version that helped shape the production ZR1 roared back to life minutes after being retrieved from the sinkhole to the delight of museum and rescue workers.You can watch a pretty cool timelapse video of the rescue of the Blue Devil below, skip to about 1:50 to see it being hoisted to safety.
This stunning 1962 model has also been retrieved and its restoration is now under-way as Chevrolet plans to restore all of them to their former glory.
