A massive sinkhole opened up beneath the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky and swallowed eight rare and historic examples of the quintessential American sports car. No one was hurt in the incident, which was recorded at 5:44 a.m. Wednesday by motion sensors at the museum in Bowling Green, just miles from the General Motors plant that builds new Corvettes. Six of the cars had been donated to the museum by enthusiasts. Two were on long-term loan from GM — and estimated to be worth more than $1 million each.
