Eight valuable Corvettes on display at Kentucky’s National Corvette Museum were swallowed by a 40-foot wide sinkhole last week. The estimated value of damage is in the millions.
The museum, about to celebrate its 20th anniversary and open a Motorsports Park in August, is the place to visit for Corvette enthusiasts, housing more than 70 unique models. Below are the eight that fell:
- 1962 “Black Corvette”
- 1984 PPG pace car
- 1992 “1 Millionth Corvette”
- 1993 ruby red “40th Anniversary Corvette”
- 1993 ZR-1 Spyder
- 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 Corvette
- 2009 ZR1 “Blue Devil”
- 2009 white “1.5 Millionth Corvette”
All other vehicles in that room have been removed, besides one – which is hanging on a riser straight above the sinkhole. Workers are setting up ramps to safely remove it. The museum hopes to start repairs as soon as possible.
