The recovery of eight classic cars swallowed by a huge sinkhole has begun at the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky.

The first car was pulled out of the giant hole Monday by a crane at the Bowling Green museum.

Cheers went up when the engine of the 2009 ZR1 Blue Devil was cranked up and the prize vehicle was driven a few feet.

Museum Katie Frassinelli says workers hope to recover a second vehicle — a 1993 Ruby Red 40th Anniversary Corvette — later Monday.

About 100 people watched the recovery work.

Frassinelli says workers hope to recover a third car Tuesday. Others won't be pulled out until workers further stabilize the sinkhole. That could take three weeks.

Chevrolet will oversee restoration of the cars at a Michigan plant.
