Corvette Museum releases sinkhole video

Corvette Museum releases sinkhole video

This morning at 5:40 a.m., Corvette enthusiasts around the world rolled over in their graves. At about that time, a sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky swallowed up 8 vintage Corvettes.

The museum recently released security video of the sinkhole in progress. The first two videos in the playlist below show the sinkhole as it begins. Pay particular attention at the 5 second mark. The third video in the playlist gives a helicopter view of the damage inside the hole. They almost look like toy cars stuck in a sand box. If only that were true.

This somehow hurts my soul.

  • The boneheads on the WGN Noon News first said, "somewhat surprisingly, a a number of Corvettes were destroyed by a sinkhole" before saying that it was at the Corvette museum. Then after noting that the museum was across from the Bowling Green assembly plant, Steve Sanders said something like "well they can make more." I don't think that the owners of the classics want a C7. Maybe the question is whether all those classic restos shows can fix the damage, but, in any event, they will no longer be in original condition.
