Huge sinkhole swallows 8 classic Corvettes in Kentucky [7 pictures]

Early this morning, while safe at home, staff of the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green Kentucky got a call from their security firm that motion detectors were going off in their “SkyDome,” the large, open facility they use for displaying many of their classic cars.

Arriving at the SkyDome to see what the problem was, they discovered that a sinkhole 40 feet wide and 40 feet deep had opened up in the middle of the floor. Eight cars had fallen in.
