The National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green is getting closer to pulling out the three remaining cars from a massive sinkhole. 

Marketing and Communications Director Katie Frassinelli says a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder will be retrieved next, possibly in the next couple of days. 

Workers spent last week vacuuming dirt out of the sinkhole that opened up beneath the museum February 12.  Eight Corvettes on display in the Skydome fell into the 50-foot-deep hole. 

Besides the Spyder, the 2009 1.5 millionth car and a 2001 Mallett Hammer Z-06 are still inside the sinkhole. 

As they are retrieved, the cars are being placed on display at the museum before they are sent to Michigan for restoration.
