40 Foot Wide Sinkhole Swallows 8 Rare Corvettes At National Museum

A giant sinkhole opened up underneath part of the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green Kentucky and swallowed 8 Corvettes that were on display. The 40-foot wide sinkhole appeared early this morning under the museum’s SkyDome taking the cars as far as 30 feet below ground. No people were reported injured or missing following the incident. The museum houses approximately 30 unique Corvettes that range from one-off prototypes to rare and limited-production models. Some of the museum’s cars are leant to the museum from General Motors and others are donated by private individuals who want to share their rare piece of automobile history with other car enthusiasts.

Sinkhole Swallows 8 Rare CorvettesExactly which rare cars were consumed by the sinkhole is not entirely clear at this point. The museum did say that 2 of the 8 Corvettes belonged to General Motors and 6 of the cars were donated to the museum from private collectors. The estimated financial loss of these cars is projected to be huge, not to mention the damage to the building itself. If one of the cars lost was a one-off prototype, then it would mean that it was lost forever. It is not likely that any cars swallowed by the sinkhole would remain in a salvageable condition. The National Corvette Museum is situated across the street from the assembly plant where Chevrolet manufactures all of the famous Corvettes. The site has been a popular attraction for automotive enthusiasts from all over the country. The museum pays tribute to the American-made Corvette, and its cultural significance in American automotive history. The museum has been open since 1994, and was celebrating it’s 20 year anniversary. At this point it is unclear when the National Corvette Museum will able to re-open. There are already structural engineers on-site assessing the damage to the facilities. They do hope to have the museum open before September when the museum was going to host the Corvette Caravan from all over the country and Canada. Featured image from National Corvette Museum site.
