Giant sinkhole draws visitors to National Corvette Museum

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. — This weekend, the public will get its first up-close look at the sinkhole that swallowed eight cars at the National Corvette Museum.

All of the cars are now out and on display at the museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

More people are trekking into the National Corvette Museum than ever before and they are coming from all over the country. Everyone is here to see the sinkhole and what came out of it.

A team of investigators think part of a cave roof collapsed following heavy rains, creating a giant hole in February. Out of the 8 cars that were damaged, Corvette thinks they may be able to salvage 4 of them.

A rep from GM was at the museum on Tuesday to take a look at the ZR-1 Spyder. Now, ideas are floating around on what should be done with the sinkhole.

“There is a possibility of leaving it here. Whether it’s just a portion or all of it having a bridge over it, stairs that go down it, a glass floor on tip where you can look down on it just any ideas people have,” said Museum Spokeswoman Katie Frassinelli. “We are talking with the construction company and engineers just to see the possibilities.”

They’re embracing the negative and turning into a positive.

Katie Frassinelli: “It’s a part of our history now “

The National Corvette Museum Bash is this Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

After that, museum officials are not sure when they will make the sinkhole area open to the public again.
