Well, this is not the news you want to start your morning with. According to WBKO.com, a 40-foot sinkhole has opened up under the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, and has swallowed at least eight cars. The sinkhole, in the Sky Dome area of the museum, is estimated to be 40 feet wide and about 20-30 feet deep. No injuries have been reported, and the museum will actually be open to visitors today (with the Sky Dome closed).
LEX 18′s Adam Winer is reporting that the 1992 White 1 Millionth Corvette, the 1993 Ruby Red 40th Anniversary Corvette, the 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06, the 1993 ZR-1 Spyder, the 2009 ZR-1 “Blue Devil,” the 1962 Black Corvette, and the 1984 PPG Pace Car are among the casualties.
First our Corvettes…what’s next? Someone go protect the bourbon!
UPDATE: Here are some more pictures of the sinkhole, from the Corvette Museum’s website…
