National Corvette Museum Sinkhole Disaster
Make sure to visit http://www.dannywhitfield.com/corvette-great8.html for a high quality great eight Corvette art print. The National Corvette Museum opened on September 2, 1994, originally occupying 63,000 square feet. The highlight of the new building was the dramatic yellow Skydome that was clearly visible from nearby Interstate 65. In 2009, an expansion increased the museum’s size to 110,000 square feet. During the last 20 years, thousands of visitors have wandered under the Skydome to inspect the historically significant Corvettes on display. That ended on February 12, 2014 at 5:39 a.m., when the museum’s security system alerted NCM employee Betty Hardison of an event inside the building. When the staff arrived, the building was filled with smoke. They called the fire department who quickly located the source. It was a 40-foot-wide hole in the Skydome floor! Deep within the hole a ZR1 was discovered sitting on top of a pile of rocks and debris. Other Corvettes could also be seen. In total, eight Corvettes fell into the abyss. Automotive Artist Danny Whitfield created the "great eight" art tribute prints to continue the legacy of these eight legend.

► 2014 Chevrolet Corvette PRODUCTION
owling Green Assembly has produced approximately 1,000 Corvette Stingrays for customer deliveries. Most of these vehicles are expected to be delivered to dealers within the next few weeks. To expedite delivery, vehicles may be shipped out of build sequence, which is a normal part of any new vehicle launch. The Bowling Green facility underwent a $131-million upgrade to support production of the Corvette Stingray, including approximately $52 million for a new body shop to manufacture the car's all-new aluminum frame in-house for the first time. The lightweight aluminum frame is the foundation for the most powerful standard Corvette ever, with an SAE-certified 455 horsepower (339 kW) and 460 lb-ft of torque (624 Nm) -- and 460 horsepower (343 kW) and 465 lb-ft (630 Nm) with the available performance Exhaust system.

Complementing its performance capability with efficiency, the Corvette Stingray delivers the best fuel economy of any sports car on the market -- an EPA-estimated 17 mpg in city driving and 29 mpg on the highway. No other car offers more than 455 horsepower and greater than 29 mpg on the highway. The 2014 Corvette Stingray is the seventh generation of the sports car, which has been built exclusively at the Bowling Green plant since June 1981.
