Literally and figuratively.

Sinkhole opens up at National Corvette Museum, swallows cars

A massive sinkhole that opened up under a Kentucky museum Wednesday morning swallowed several vintage and rare Corvettes.

The National Corvette Museum said the Bowling Green Fire Department estimates the sinkhole to be around 25-30 feet deep and 40 feet wide.

“This is going to be an interesting situation,” Museum Executive Director Wendell Strode told the Bowling Green Daily News, noting that a structural engineer is at the Bowling Green facility to evaluate the damage inside its Sky Dome section.

Six of the cars in the sinkhole are owned by the museum; two others are owned by General Motors.


The museum is closed for the day.

Ya think?

    I might be wrong, but I’d say there’s a lot of people currently battling the elements in the North East who don’t give a shit.

    Now this is where a bail out is really needed!

    A sports car with a 500lb I6? No. A sports car with a 600lb V8? Even more no. A sports car should have 4 cylinders & a 4 speed manual transmission. A single person should be able to lift one end of a sports car. You should be forced to choose between groceries or a lady when you drive your sports car.

    Even God hates that bulgy, plastic monstrosity.
