Those times in life when you wish the ground would open up and swallow you whole, is a situation we really never want to be in. The National Corvette Museum was however, the mighty cars that suffered the earth swollowing sink hole calamity are now being restored, including this 1 Millionth Corvette, a white 1992 Corevette convertible.

“We felt it was important to restore this extremely significant car in Corvette’s long, storied history,” said Mark Reuss, General Motors executive vice president, Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain. “When we disassembled it, we found that each employee involved in building it had signed a part of the car, which was fantastic and moving to see. It brought the history to life, and reinforced the importance of the project.”

The car was restored at GM’s Technical Center campus in Warren, Mich., which had 30 different technicians working on the re-build.
Being the only millionth Corvette, it had to be restored to as original as possible.
“We went to great lengths to preserve every autograph,” said David Bolognino, director of GM Global Design Fabrication Operations. “In the end, we saved every one of them, which was an unexpected and important element to the restoration.”
