Visitors to The National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky, can learn a lot about the classic American sports car. These days, they can also get a lesson in making lemonade from life’s lemons.

When a sinkhole opened up under an exhibit area in the wee hours of February 12, eight of the museum’s prized cars were swallowed up. The museum closed for one day before reopening and transforming the sinkhole recovery operation into another—and very popular—exhibit. A viewing window at a safe distance provides a peek at the site, and webcams allow the curious to view progress live on the Internet.

The damaged cars will be on display through August before some of them are sent off for restoration. The museum is across the street from the only GM factory that manufactures Corvettes. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for children ages 6 to 16. (800) 538-3883—Paul Zieke Westways [...]

Detroit — A man’s prized Corvette that was stolen three decades ago in Detroit has been found in Mississippi.

George Talley says he was watching TV last week when AAA called to say his 1979 Corvette had been found.

Talley tells WXYZ-TV he was told the car still runs, has 47,000 miles on it and is sitting at a police station in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

The last time Talley saw the car was in 1981, before thieves took it from a parking spot along a Detroit street.
