Covette Museum in Kentucky Swallowed-Up by Sinkhole

The National Corvette Museum is located in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and early last Thursday morning at 5:40 a.m. the museum was swallowed up by a sinkhole. The hole measured 40 feet across and nearly 30 feet deep, luckily no one was in the museum at the time.

Six corvettes were swallowed by the sinkhole, two that were on loan from General Motors, a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder and a 2009 ZR1 Blue Devil. The four other cars that fell into the sinkhole where a 1962 Corvette, the 1984 PPG Pace Par, a 1992 model, a 1993 40th Anniversary Corvette, a 2006 Mallet Hammer Zo6 Corvette, and the 1.5-millionth Corvette from the 2009 model.

The only ‘Vette’ to survive was a prototype from 1983 when no Corvettes were made. It’s hard to put a price on the amount of damage to the cars, but it would have to be in the several hundreds of thousand dollar range.
