    Tom, that's actually a fact that I was previously unaware of, too! If you look at production numbers there is no listing between 1982 and 1984, and the history says that GM produced 43 pre-production units, but they all ordered to be held and titled as '84's before any were released to the public. Engineer's hid one, knowing that it was an important part of the history, and it is the white 1983 at the museum. A link that tells the story, and the interesting twist in the history - The Missing 1983 Corvette! | Corvette Blog

    The latest I saw was that work was to start yesterday on stabilizing the remaining floor, and once they have things stable they will need six days to extract the cars. The sinkhole has not expanded any more since the collapse, which is good. Once extracted GM will take the cars to their Mechanical Assembly Area within the Design Center where work will begin on all that can be restored. The report was that the dome's wall structure was not affected, and that the plan will be to use compacted fill to bring the sinkhole back to grade, and then to pour a new floor.

    Being one of the "ignorant" ones posting on this thread, I have to say that after seeing the pics of the cars that went in the hole, the black '62 wasn't the only cool one!

    There's a collector's showroom right across the street with some cool cars too. I wonder what's lurking under THAT building?

    Another ignorant one here with a mutilated chebby. Haha........

    Randy, hopefully there's no big cavernous sink hole under that floor. Lots of cool stuff in there.

    And one car doesn't make it a production year. So yeah, there aren't any 83 Vettes to be bought unless you are Bill Gates.

    Yeah, Ryan, I especially like the black '58 Impala and the red '63 Galaxie!! To be assured they don't slide into another sink hole, I think they should immediately ship them to me!!!

    Knew a guy in the Navy who was fond of saying that he owned a bunch of property out in western Nevada, and he was going to cash in when California slid into the ocean by selling beachfront property...
