I'm sure most of you have seen the story already since it was big news today, but in case you haven't...

CNN story wrote:Eight valuable 'vettes at Bowling Green, Kentucky's National Corvette Museum fell victim to a 40-foot-wide, 20-foot-deep sinkhole that opened up in the facility's yellow Sky Dome wing. The museum unofficially estimates it caused millions of dollars in damage.

Motion detectors alerted security that something was amiss shortly after 5:30 a.m., said museum spokeswoman Katie Frassinelli. An employee who first walked into the room "has been in shock all day," she said.

I heard a blurb on the radio, but not much more than that. Ice never had an opinion one way or the other about Vettes except to say that I don't want one.

"The museum reports that attendance has jumped a whopping 50 percent over this time last year; it is expected to welcome its 3 millionth visitor some time in the coming days as a result of this flood of guests.

According to a statement by the museum, “The interest in the damaged Corvettes continued to grow as did the Museum's attendance, so much so that the Museum decided to leave the sinkhole for the summer, and delay construction until after their 20th Anniversary Celebration August 27-30.”"
