A 40-foot sinkhole swallowed eight vintage Corvettes Wednesday morning after opening up inside the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
No one was hurt when the 25-foot deep hole opened up underneath the museum’s Sky Dome, taking with it a 1962 Black Corvette, 1984 PPG Pace Car, 1993 Ruby Red 40th Anniversary, 1993 ZR-1 Spyder, 2009 ZR-1 “Blue Devil,” 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06, the 1 millionth Corvette produced in 1992 and the 1.5 millionth made in 2009. Only one ’83 Corvette has been removed.
The fire department was called to investigate and the museum was closed to undergo a damage assessment.
