Sinkhole opens up at National Corvette Museum and Swallows Cars!
Just saw this on the news this morning, pretty crazy huh?
A massive sinkhole that has opened up at the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky has swallowed at least eight cars, a museum official says.
Museum Executive Director Wendell Strode told the Bowling Green Daily News that the sinkhole, which he estimates to be around 20 feet deep and 40 feet wide, opened up early Wednesday morning.
"This is going to be an interesting situation," he said, nothing that a structural engineer is heading to the Bowling Green facility to evaluate the damage inside its Sky Dome section.
Six of the cars in the sinkhole are owned by the museum and two others are owned by General Motors.
The museum said in a press release that the cars are a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder and 2009 ZR1 "Blue Devil" on loan from General Motors, and a 1962 Black Corvette, 1984 PPG Pace Car, 1992 White 1 Millionth Corvette, 1993 Ruby Red 40th Anniversary Corvette, 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 Corvette and a 2009 White 1.5 Millionth Corvette.
