Yesterday, a 40-foot sinkhole opened up in the Sky Dome section of the National Corvette Museum, claiming the lives of eight irreplaceable Corvettes. The Corvette Museum was initially hesitant to remove the rest of the cars within the Sky Dome, pending the results of a structural assessment of the building.
Today, we’re happy to report the rest of the at-risk ‘Vettes in the Sky Dome were evacuated safely, thanks to a team of volunteers who pushed the cars out, according to Autoblog. It isn’t entirely clear where the cars will go, but they will most likely be stored in other parts of the building until further notice.
The sinkhole opened up at around 5:30 a.m. yesterday morning and set motion sensors off at 5:44 a.m. Due to the hole’s size, more than 40-feet wide and 20-feet deep, the future of the Corvette Museum’s Sky Dome could be at risk. Structural engineers are currently on site assessing the damage.
