Sinkhole Opens Up at National Corvette Museum, Swallows Cars
Yeah, I know it’s Faux News, but they should be fairly trustworthy on this kind of story. Maybe they can find a commentator to tie this to the wrath of Gawd for something or other, possibly a failure to adequately support the Ark Encounter theme park.
A massive sinkhole that opened up under a Kentucky museum Wednesday morning swallowed several vintage and rare Corvettes.
The National Corvette Museum said the Bowling Green Fire Department estimates the sinkhole to be around 25-30 feet deep and 40 feet wide.
“This is going to be an interesting situation,” Museum Executive Director Wendell Strode told the Bowling Green Daily News, noting that a structural engineer is at 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; two others are owned by General Motors.
“It is with heavy hearts that we report that eight Corvettes were affected by this incident,” the museum said in a press release.
The museum said the cars are a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder and 2009 ZR1 “Blue Devil” on loan from General Motors; a 1962 Black Corvette;
