Tucked away for 40 years, this 1955 Chevrolet Corvette is out, don’t even think about trying to buy it.
Anyone who owns a rare classic car like a 1955 Corvette could tell you that car collectors are constantly trying to buy them up, and that’s the exact reason Bob Doucette put his 1955 Corvette into hiding — that, and wanting a safe place to preserve the car.

Remember the Corvette Museum sinkhole?
At 5:39 a.m. on February 12, 2014 at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky, Mother Nature struck in a very unkind way. A 40-foot sinkhole opened up inside the Skydome and eight rare and unique Corvettes took a 30-foot plunge to the bottom.

There were even plans at one point to permanently keep the sinkhole because of the large crowds it drew, but ultimately the decision was made to fill it in.
