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.
