The National Corvette Museum in Kentucky suffered a sudden loss when a sinkhole suddenly appeared and swallowed eight cars.
It has been revealed by the museum spokeswoman Katie Frassinelli that six of the cars belonged to the museum and two others, a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder and a 2009 ZR1 Blue Devil were on loan from General Motors.
The appearance of the sinkhole, that appeared at around 5am, did not shut down the building - at that time, the museum was empty.
As per reports, the sinkhole is in the domed section of the museum, and that area will remain closed. The fire department has estimated the hole is about 40 feet across and 25 feet to 30 feet deep.
The Corvette Museum is located in Bowling Green which, apparently, sits in the middle of Kentucky's largest karst region the Western Pennyroyal area and in this region, many of the state's longest and deepest caves run underground.
Incidentally, the museum would be celebrating the 2014 Corvette Caravan in September to mark the 20th anniversary of the museum.
