Note: Security cam footage of the hole appearing after the jump.
At 5:44AM Wednesday morning a sinkhole opened underneath part of the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and swallowed eight cars, at least two of which are valued over $1-million apiece. Wow -- expensive meal, Earth!
The affected 'Vettes include a 1962 model, a 1984 Corvette pace car, the millionth-Corvette ever built (a 1992 C4 model), a 1993 Corvette 40th Anniversary Edition, a 2001 Corvette Z06, and the 1.5 millionth Corvette ever built, a 2009 C6. Two GM-owned Corvettes on loan to the museum were also damaged, including the blue 2009 Corvette ZR1, and a 1993 Corvette ZR-1 Spyder.
Man, if I were there I would have punched that sinkhole right in the mouth. "You can't punch sinkholes." And I would have made some VERY disparaging remarks about its family. Something like, I heard your mom was a volcano! "That doesn't even make any sense." It doesn't have to, sinkholes aren't that smart. As long as I SAY it mean, it will BE mean.
Keep going for a couple more pictures and the security cam footage, and a couple videos of the aftermath including some R/C helicopter footage.
Thanks to Ryan L and BBQ, who agree the only museum appropriate for a sinkhole to appear is at the museum of natural disasters.
