A sinkhole opened up at the National Corvette Museum and swallowed eight vintage Corvettes!! University of Western Kentucky’s Engineering Department sent a drone helicopter down there to see what was happening. As we know, the sinkhole is at least 25 feet deep and about 400 feet wide. Fortunately, nobody was hurt.

A sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum swallowed eight vintage Corvettes!!

The damaged cars included 1984 PPG Pace Car, 1993 ZR-1 Spyder, 1962 black Corvette, and 2001 Mallett Hammber Z06 Corvette Рall were buried in the dirt. Employees must have been in tears because of this enormous loss-some of the cars were on loan and some were owned by the museum but the fact that some of these vehicles are more than 50 years old makes this whole situation even sadder. Take a look at the footage from the drone that shows how messy it is down there and what has happened to the beautiful rides.

And here’s a video where they retrieve some of the cars and dig out parts of the others! The ZR1 turned out to be OK, it even started from the first turning of the key, but the others not so much! This is so sad!
