Priceless Corvettes Destroyed in Museum (VIDEO + C7 VIDEO REVIEW)

See also

Eight priceless Chevrolet Corvettes were destroyed when part of the floor collapsed at The National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The museum is located in the town where the Corvette is built.

Early Wednesday morning a sink hole developed setting off an alarm, and alerting the fire department. Thankfully, no one was in the museum at the time of the floor's collapse.

Six of the cars destroyed were owned by the museum and two were owned by General Motors. The GM cars included two ZR1's. A 1993 Convertible and the 2009 Blue Devil.

The Vettes lost from the museum's collection included a black 1962, a 1984 Pace Car, the 1 millionth Corvette made in 1992, a 1993 40th Anniversary Special Edition, a 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 and the 1.5 millionth white Corvette.

It's definitely a tragedy, but hopefully some of the cars can be rebuilt. It's especially ironic that this year is the National Corvette Museum's 20th Anniversary and is planning on hosting the 2014 Corvette Caravan later this year from August 28 thru August 30th.

Here is Video of the Sink Hole Swallowing the Vettes
