If sinkhole insurance for your car isn’t a thing, perhaps it should be. On Wednesday, a sinkhole gobbled up eight rare classic Corvettes at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The floor started caving in at 5:40 a.m. local time creating a massive hole that the fire department estimated is some 40 feet across and 30 feet deep. “The museum unofficially estimates it caused millions of dollars in damage,” CNN reports. Security cameras in the museum caught the whole thing, above.
Here’s what the aftermath looked like:
Here are more details from the Associated Press on the classic cars that were part of the carnage:
Six of the cars were owned by the museum and two — a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder and a 2009 ZR1 Blue Devil — were on loan from General Motors, said museum spokeswoman Katie Frassinelli. The other cars damaged were a 1962 black Corvette, a 1984 PPG Pace Car, a 1992 White 1 Millionth Corvette, a 1993 Ruby Red 40th Anniversary Corvette, a 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 Corvette and a 2009 white 1.5 Millionth Corvette.
