If you wanted to see the lucrative, yet treacherous, sinkhole firsthand that opened up under the National Corvette Museum in February of this year that dragged eight historic ‘Vettes straight to hell, now is your last chance to do so.
Construction on the Skydome is set to begin next Monday, November 10th, though visitors will be able to observe the progress of the construction crew through a plexiglas viewing window. Additionally, a mini-exhibit will be open temporarily to allow visitors to experience the sinkhole secondhand through photos, videos and other artifacts.
Six of the “great eight” sinkhole-swallowed Corvettes are on display as of right now, and the 2009 Corvette ZR1 “Blue Devil” was recently shown at the SEMA trade show, restored to her former glory. It will be present next July for the scheduled grand re-opening of the Skydome.
Of course, if you can’t make it to Bowling Green, Kentucky to see the sinkhole site firsthand, there is a plethora of security camera videos, photographs, and even an NCM sinkhole movie to let you relive the car-killing natural disaster again, and again, and again.
