Sinkholes seem to be in the news a lot these days, but this particular sinkhole apparently had a bone to pick with the American auto industry.   At 5:30 AM CST, a 40-foot wide, 20-foot deep sinkhole opened up beneath the Sky Dome in Bowling Green, Kentucky's National Corvette Museum. Eight cars were swallowed into the chasm.  Luckily for dedicated Corvette fans, the museum's prized 1983 Corvette, prominently featured in the Sky Dome, narrowly avoided falling into the abyss. It has been removed from the showroom until repairs can be made.   None of the cars that were lost were privately owned, with two being owned by General Motors and the rest having been donated by avid Corvette enthusiasts. Still, this does little to soften the blow felt by employees and collectors alike:  "I was shocked," said Frazer Bharucha, a Corvette owner since the age of 17 and member of the Long Island Corvette Owners Association. "We're talking about iconic cars that have been around for years."  An estimate for the amount of money lost has not been determined. Here are the eight Corvette vehicles that perished into the depths this morning, per – feel free to beginning your grieving process now: 
  • 1962 Black Corvette    
  • 1984 PPG Pace Car    
  • 1992 White 1 Millionth Corvette    
  • 1993 Ruby Red 40th Anniversary Corvette    
  • 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 Corvette    
  • 2009 White 1.5 Millionth Corvette    
  • 1993 ZR-1 Spyder on loan from General Motors     
  • 2009 ZR1 “Blue Devil” on loan from General Motors
