Sinkhole Claims Classic Corvettes

Sinkhole500

A 40-foot-wide sinkhole opened up in the least opportune location for Corvette fans early Wednesday morning.

According to reports, the giant sinkhole opened underneath the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Ky., swallowing eight noteworthy Vettes. Bowling Green is where the Corvette has been manufactured for decades; a few years ago the Corvette became the official sports car of Kentucky.

The eight Corvettes that are no-longer in museum condition are:

  • 1962 black Corvette
  • 1984 PPG pace car
  • 1992 white 1 millionth Corvette
  • 1993 ruby red 40th anniversary Corvette
  • 1993 ZR-1 Spyder on loan from GM
  • 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 Corvette
  • 2009 white 1.5 millionth Corvette
  • 2009 ZR1 "Blue Devil" on loan from GM

Numbers 16:30-33

30 But if the LORD make a new thing, and the earth open her mouth, and swallow them up, with all that appertain unto them, and they go down quick into the pit; then ye shall understand that these men have provoked the LORD.

31 And it came to pass, as he had made an end of speaking all these words, that the ground clave asunder that was under them:

32 And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their goods.

33 They, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed upon them: and they perished from among the congregation.

I feel a bit bad for the '62, because it's so old. The rest of them, though -- good place for them to be.
