BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - The recovery of eight classic cars swallowed by a huge sinkhole has begun at the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky.
The first car was pulled out of the giant hole Monday by a crane at the Bowling Green museum.
Cheers went up when the engine of the 2009 ZR1 Blue Devil was cranked up and the prize vehicle was driven a few feet.
Workers recovered a second vehicle - a 1993 Ruby Red 40th Anniversary Corvette - later Monday.
About 100 people watched the recovery work.
Workers will continue to try and recover a third car Tuesday.
The others won't be pulled out until workers further stabilize the sinkhole - which could take two or three weeks.
Chevrolet will oversee restoration of the cars at a Michigan plant.
