I see they've lifted 2 of the 'victims' out so far...

Saw video last night of them starting one of them.  It sounded good!  I can't find that video though.  Maybe later!

They have actually lifted 3 out so far BRD.

I have been watching since the first was pulled out and they started it. The second one, the front end was in bad shape. The third one was the black '62. Here are the links. The first link shows a video of the '62 after it was out.

Thanks for the links Viper...

I'll be switching between the puppy cam and the 'vette cam now!

They've got several inches of snow around the museum.

I wonder if we can get them to have the transport stop in Monroe when they haul them back to do the repair work?

There was a woman that was posting in the comments section on the ustream link that is married to the guy who did the live stream when they were pulling them out. She said that her husband told her they are going to show the cars as they are until August 3rd. They will then be taken to GM's Warren Tech Center to be restored.

I was watching yesterday when they pulled the black '62 out. That same woman said it would probably be about 10 days before they tried to pull any of the others out. She said they have to dig and remove some of the dirt and concrete slabs first. The 3 they have out,  they had to do each one differently.
