The local news just reported that the museum is actually going to be open tomorrow, just not in the area where the sinkhole is. That is really surprising to me given how that sinkhole looks in the pics & videos. I know I would not want to be there tomorrow.

Watch Six of Chevy's most important part of history get sucked up by sink hole

WATCH it has it happens as Six prize Vehicles on loan from Chevy get sucked up by a sink hole,cars so important to Chevy's history that they were never to be sold....First ZR1 produced Gone...so say the reports ..some may be gone forever,and others may be able to be saved,but they will never be the same or hold the same Value since they were all in original factory never titled condition. Sad sad day...

Some of those shots do not look 30 feet deep. They look like they go forever.

Kentucky sits on top of soft limestone that is riddled with underground rivers and reservoirs. That limestone filtered water is part of what makes Kentucky bourbon what it is rather than just being whiskey. The Bowling Green area sits right on top of the Mammoth Caves, the largest known cave system in the world, which is constantly growing. I would imagine that a lot of the concern about stability has to do with that knowledge and those endless holes you are seeing. They may open up to a cavern hundreds of feet deep.

The ZR1 and 62 will be fine.
Anything is restorable. I really doubt the got twisted and destroyed to the point where they wouldn't. Especially since Chevrolet is overseeing the restoration of # 1 and 1.5 millionth, that we cannot see and are completely buried.

GM/Chevrolet will be restoring all the Corvettes!

http://www.4-traders.com/GENERAL-MOT...ttes-17947941/

General Motors Company : Chevrolet to Oversee Restoration of Damaged Vintage Corvettes

Chevrolet will oversee the restoration of eight vintage Corvettes that were damaged falling into a sinkhole that opened inside the National Corvette Museum, General Motors said Thursday...

BTW Is anyone maybe a little morbid like me and would make a trip to the museum to see a display of them in the restored Skydome BEFORE they're restored/as recovered? You know, instead of a barn find a sinkhole find!
