PPG Pace Car Rescued From Sinkhole

Yesterday we reported on the surprising recovery of the One Millionth Corvette. In another unexpected turn of events, the construction crew was able to go ahead and also save the 1984 PPG Pace Car.

After a 10 ton slab of concrete and the Millionth Corvette were extracted, the team had a better view of the PPG car and could hook on to it. When they did so, the car barely moved - and they then discovered there was more concrete under the dirt and on top of the car. They were able to remove the concrete and then lift out the PPG car. Unfortunately, this car is the most damaged to date as the concrete had "judo chopped" it.

As of now, the plan is to stabilize the sinkhole walls, the red spire and any other measures that are needed so the dirt, concrete, rebar, safety barriers and three remaining Corvettes can be extracted from the hole.

Watch videos of the Millionth, PPG Car and others being rescued on You Tube here.
