An enormous 40-foot sink hole was discovered at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

According to the executive director, Wendell Strode, in the early morning hours on Wednesday, some time before 5:30 a.m., a sink hole started to form directly under the museum’s iconic Sky Dome. By 5:44 a.m. the motion detectors in the dome were starting to go off. Emergency personnel were called.


After arriving to the museum, emergency personnel said they found a giant 40-foot sink hole that was about 25 to 30 feet deep. No one was at the museum at the time. “It’s  pretty significant,” Strode said.

The museum issued a statement saying that a total of eight cars were damaged by the sinkhole. Two of the eight cars were on loan from General Motors, a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder and a 2009ZR1 Blue Devil.

The other cars that belonged to the museum were a 1962 black Corvette, a 1984 PPG Pace Car, a 1992 White 1 Millionth Corvette, a 1993 Ruby Red 40th Anniversary Corvette, a 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 Corvette and a 2009 White 1.5 Millionth Corvette.

The president of the Louisville Falls City Corvette Club said, he cringed when he heard the news about which of the cars were involved. “I was stunned,” he said. “That just doesn’t happen in Kentucky and what a terrible place for it to happen.”
