Corvette Museum to Display Sinkhole Damaged Cars before Sending them for Repairs [w/Videos]

Remember the sinkhole that swallowed eight classic Corvettes at the National Corvette Museum last week? Of course you do. What you don’t know is that the Kentucky museum decided to display the damaged Corvettes before sending them for repairs.

That’s right, the museum received so many requests from people wanting to see how the huge sinkhole affected the eight classic cars that it decided to display the damaged Corvettes before sending them for repairs.

Museum spokeswoman Katie Frassinelly said people are curious to see the damage caused by the sinkhole so the Kentucky attraction will give them a close look. However, it first needs to extract the cars from the sinkhole, with the operation expected to start in a couple of weeks.

The museum plans to display the damaged cars that are nearest to the surface from April through July, with more cars to be added when recovered. After the exhibition, the cars will be taken to Michigan where GM will repair them.

The vehicles were swallowed when a giant sinkhole opened up last week beneath a display area of the Bowling Green museum. Thankfully, the incident happened when the museum was closed and no injuries were reported.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t understand why people would want to see some damaged Corvettes. However, I would understand it if the money raised from entrance fees would be directed towards restoring the cars and repairing the museum. I hope that is the case.
