Car enthusiasts will not want to hear this, but a gigantic 40-foot sinkhole has opened up inside the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY and swallowed eight cars in the process, including a vintage 1962 Vette and two cars on loan to the museum from GM.

The sinkhole apparently set off motion detectors around 5:44 am in the Skydome area of the museum. The museum remains closed while officials assess the situation and the damage.

The good news is that nobody was injured. The only vehicle that was removed from the museum was the only remaining 1983 Corvette, which was only one of 44 produced that year. This is a developing story.
