Default The One Millionth Corvette Died Today...

along with with several other priceless Corvettes.




Quote:
(Reuters) - A 40-foot sinkhole opened up under the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky and swallowed eight collector cars, including the historic 1992 White 1 Millionth Corvette, the museum said on Wednesday.

No injuries were reported, but a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder and a 2009 ZR1 "Blue Devil" on loan from General Motors Co were among the iconic cars piled up in the gaping pit.

"It seems almost Biblical in a way, to have the ground open up and swallow the cream of the collection of the museum," said Corvette historian Jerry Burton. "What are the odds?"

Alarms went off early Wednesday morning in the "Skydome" area and museum security officers who rushed to the scene discovered the sinkhole, 25 to 30 feet deep.

The Bowling Green Fire Department estimated its width at 40 feet.

In addition to the White 1 Millionth Corvette, a 1962 Black Corvette, a 1984 PPG Pace Car, a 1993 Ruby Red 40th Anniversary Corvette, a 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 Corvette and a 2009 White 1.5 Millionth Corvette were among the damaged cars owned by the museum.

That sucks so bad. I've never even seen the ZR1 spyder. Thank God that nobody was there, though.

Sucks sooo much. Lot of history in that museum. Could have been so much worse though.

On another note, what's with all the sink holes lately? Is it just me or are these things becoming more frequent?

It seems to me they should have picked a better location.

Quote:

That region of south central Kentucky contains many caves and sinkholes, known as "karst" topography. Mammoth Cave National Park is about 20 miles from Bowling Green.

"It's not uncommon for us to see sinkhole collapses," said city spokeswoman Kim Lancaster. "Most are significantly smaller than the one we have today."
I guess the smaller ones don't usually eat one of a kind machines worth millions?

What the **** are you talking about idiot? Can't get into the PF so you're going to act like a moron on the regular board? Didn't work out real well for you last time, did it?
