The National Corvette Museum Sinkhole

At 5:44 am Wednesday February 12, 2014 the NCM's security company reported that motion detectors were going off in the Skydome area. It was discovered that a massive sinkhole had opened, swallowing 8 of the Corvettes on display.

ZR-1 Spyder show car. Note signatures on many of the black panels - even though it is a

concept car, it was built on the regular production line, and all the workers signed it!

And the worst for last: the 2001 Z06 Mallett.

The last one out, and by far the worst damage.
