Corvettes swallowed up in sinkhole

Eight Corvettes were swallowed up by a sinkhole inside the National Corvette Museum at the Sky Dome in Bowling Green, Ky. The hole is upto 40ft wide and as deep as 35ft.

Motion detectors went off at 6am and a massive sink hole was created.

The cars listed as eaten are:

1993 ZR-1 Spyder on loan from General Motors

2009 ZR1 “Blue Devil” on loan from General Motors

1962 Black Corvette

1984 PPG Pace Car

1992 White 1 Millionth Corvette

1993 Ruby Red 40th Anniversary Corvette

2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 Corvette

2009 White 1.5 Millionth Corvette

Firefighters allowed the museum to remove the cars left in the dome.

Given the rarity and value of some of the cars, they will probably pulled out and restored. Sinkholes are a massive problem in Florida. I hadn’t realized that other parts of the states were also effected.
