BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Another historic Corvette is now out of the sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green.

Crews used cranes on Tuesday to haul out the 1962 black Corvette.

The removal was a little trickier than that of the first two because a five-ton slab of concrete was sitting on top of the car.

Crews tied a strap to the front of the car, drilled anchors into the concrete and lifted the 1962 Corvette out of the darkness.

There are still five Corvettes in the sinkhole, but no more are expected to be removed this week.

Once all the vehicles are out, they'll be put on display at the museum, then they'll be taken to Detroit to be restored.
