BOWLING GREEN, Kentucky (WDTN) – Today marks one year since a sinkhole swallowed several classic cars at the National Corvette Museum.

The sinkhole cratered the museum floor and damaged or destroyed eight vehicles.

The hole was eventually filled in back in November.

But museum officials say they’ve seen a big jump in visitors who are curious about the hole and the damaged cars.

Only three of the cars could be salvaged. The rest will become part of a new “sinkhole exhibit” that documents what happened and the rebuilding afterwards. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
