Eight collector cars damaged in a sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum


Six of them was owned by the Museum. These were a 1962 black Corvette, a 1984 PPG Pace Car, a 1992 White 1 Millionth Corvette, a 1993 Ruby Red 40th Anniversary Corvette, a 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 Corvette and a 2009 white 1.5 Millionth Corvette. The other two wrecked cars – a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder and a 2009 ZR1 Blue Devil – were on loan from General Motors. A few feet away, other Corvettes sit undamaged and undisturbed. However, the personnel quickly removed an irreplaceable 1983 Corvette from the Sky Dome because it’s the only prototype of the vehicle.
Katie Frassinelli, the spokeswoman of the museum, said no one was in the museum at about 5.40 local time and no injuries were reported.
The stability of the surrounding area will be verified. The cause of the sinkhole maybe already supposed. The Museum area, which is located about a mile away from the General Motors Bowling Green Assembly Plant, is in the midst of the state’s largest karst region — the Western Pennyroyal area, where many of Kentucky’s longest and deepest caves run underground.
The section of the museum with the hole will remain closed.
