Sinkhole Swallows 8 Corvettes at National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky


Eight Corvettes fell into a sinkhole that opened up beneath the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky.

A sinkhole inside the National Corvette Museum swallowed eight Corvettes Wednesday morning. The sinkhole is about 40 feet wide and about 25 to 30 feet deep. Among vehicles damaged were a 1962 Black Corvette, a 1984 PPG Pace Car, and a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder — all previously donated by Corvette enthusiasts.

The National Corvette Museum is located across the street from the GM Bowling Green Corvette assembly plant, where the cars are made.
