    It's very the worse for wear.
    There are times for thinking, and times for acting, but the art is in the balance

    Default Dragged by it's balls?

    I'm no construction expert, demolition dude or car-crash afficianado, but WHY was this Vette hauled out of there by it's nuts? Hanging sideways like sea-sludge? Couldn't be lifted straight, like the ZR? The body's gone for sure but it will be rebuilt, so why was it picked out of there like refuse?

    Workers use a crane to extract the 1993 40th Anniversary Chevrolet Corvette from the sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum on Monday, March 3, 2014 in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The 40th Anniversary Corvette, along with seven other Corvettes, fell into the sinkhole February 12. This vehicle was the second Corvette to be recovered. It appears to have sustained major damage after its nearly 30-foot fall. (Photo by Steve Fecht for Chevrolet)

    I'm sure the workers know what they're doing and if they can avoid any further damage to the cars, they'll do it.

    Hate to say it. But this is a TOTAL. Send it to the crusher. If the other vettes are anywhere near like this one, just leave them down there.
