It Couldn't Have Happened to a Better Car


Sinkhole swallows museum Corvettes

NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -Several pricey cars were swallowed up by a massive sinkhole in Kentucky on Wednesday morning.

A sinkhole about 40-feet wide opened up below the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green damaging eight Corvettes.

The museum was closed for the day, according to its website

The floor in the Skydome area of the museum collapsed before 5:44 a.m. No one was injured.

The hole was approximately 25-30 feet deep.

The vehicles damaged include a 1962 Black Corvette owned by the museum and a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder on loan from General Motors.

A structural engineer is assessing the damage and stability of the area.

The museum was preparing for its 20th anniversary celebration in August

“You don’t understand, that ‘62 was the only numbers matching, factory air, heater delete, ‘Vette known to be in existence!”

Big deal.  Who cares?  There’s plenty of other morphodite option combo, classic Corvettes out there, restored to beyond showroom condition.  Although I do admit that I would rather have had the car’s fate be, having someone stick a 502 in it, and driving it through several Wisconsin winters.

I have a love/hate relationship with Corvettes.  I’d love to have one, but I hate the facts that I will never be able to afford one, and that ‘Vette enthusiasts are so anal.  “Don’t touch!”

You know that that car had the velvet ropes around it.  A lot of good they did when the planet itself said, “Enough of this bullshit”, and swallowed it whole.  By comparison, touching doesn’t seem so bad now, does it?
