8 Corvettes Swallowed By Sinkhole At National Corvette Museum

National Corvette Museum

The National Corvette Museum is located in Bowling Green, Kentucky and today was affected by a massive sinkhole that swallowed eight cars.

According to local news station WBKO, the sinkhole opened up around 5:45 AM, and is said to be 40 feet wide and 20 to 30 feet deep.

Here are the Corvettes currently sitting at the bottom of a pit:

  • 1993 ZR-1 Spyder on loan from General Motors
  • 2009 ZR1 “Blue Devil” on loan from General Motors
  • 1992 One-millionth Corvette
  • 1962 Black Corvette
  • 1984 PPG Pace Car
  • 1993 Ruby Red 40th Anniversary Corvette
  • 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 Corvette
  • 2009 White 1.5-Millionth Corvette

Here’s a photo of the aftermath:

As a safety precaution, museum employees moved Corvettes that were nearby the sinkhole:

For now, a structural engineer will assess the damage, and hopefully the National Corvette Museum will be back up and running soon.
