Sinkhole at National Corvette Museum Swallows 8 Cars


A Sinkhole is Responsible for Damaging 8 Chevy Corvette Collector Cars at the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky This Morning

The news comes shortly after the unfortunate event unfolded. Around 5:30am the alarm went off at the Corvette Museum and security personal rushed to what was expected to be an attempted robbery. What they arrived to find was just as bad. Although all of the cars were still in the building. They weren’t in show quality condition anymore.

The 40′ wide and nearly 30′ deep sinkhole swallowed over half a million dollars worth of chevy muscle cars. Thats a big meal no matter who you are. Fortunately for folks worried if it was car of theirs on loan, the museum quickly quieted those concerns with their report. Seems that the 8 corvettes damaged during the incident, were either owned by the National Corvette Museum or on loan from GM ( General Motors).

There is no doubt that the National Corvette Museum has stellar car insurance, and after a hefty insurance claim and I’m assuming large deductible, the bowtied beauties will be repaired by the best shops in town. For now, the museum is closed for the day, but will re-open everywhere else besides the skydome, where the incident occurred. You can read more at their website, here: National Corvette Museum Blog

In case you were wondering exactly which corvette cars were damaged during the accident, Here is the list that the Museum released this morning:

  • 1993 ZR-1 Spyder on loan from General Motors
