Kentucky's National Corvette Museum is now missing a number of its precious cars. Eight of the swanky vehicles on display at this Bowling Green institution were swallowed by a sinkhole, according to the museum's site as well as photos on Twitter on Feb. 12.

Although these amazing machines were lost to a massive hole that measures about 40 feet wide and about 25 to 30 feet deep, no humans were hurt in the process. That's because nobody was around when this collapse happened.

Among the vehicles that were eaten up by the sinkhole were a 1993 ruby red Corvette commemorating the sporty model's 40th anniversary, a 2001 mallet hammer Z06 Corvette, and a vintage corvette from 1962 painted shiny black.

Also lost were two cars on loan from General Motors: A 1993 ZR1 Spyder and 2009 ZR1 Blue Devil. The rest of the lost specimens were owned by the museum.

And so as this sad Corvette museum news spills, eight cars disappeared due to a massive sinkhole that took down these stunning vehicles that were sitting on pedestals under a huge dome. What a crime against a car collection with nobody to blame — or at least not yet.
