Default National Corvette Museum, Giant Sinkhole Formed, Corvettes Gone!!! (MERGED)

Just on the local news. A sinkhole has opened up under an interior section of the National Corvette Museum and 6 Corvettes are now in a 20 foot deep hole. No pics yet. A structural engineer has been called in.

As many of you may know the Museum is only 30-40 miles from the largest cave system in North America. Lots of sink holes in this part of the state.

I read eight cars total. I wonder which ones? Horrible news but glad no injuries have been reported.

A Bowling Green Fire Department truck moves into place Wednesday morning at the scene of a sinkhole collapse inside the dome at the National Corvette Museum. A sinkhole opened up and swallowed eight cars.

I thought the thread was going to be a joke.
