Holy Sinkhole, Batman!
Boy, oh boy! Who ever would have thought that a giant sinkhole would open
up in the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green and swallow up eight
Corvettes? It certainly wasn’t anything I would have dreamed up, and I’m sure that
Wendell Strode found it hard to believe when he got the call that the motion
sensors inside the Skydome section of the Museum went off. On his way to the
museum I’ll bet a sinkhole was the last thing he expected to find.
But, as bad as it was, it could have been much worse if anyone had been
injured. Luckily, since it happened in the early morning hours, nobody was present
in the museum. We have the entire sinkhole saga covered here including video
from the actual museum surveillance cameras.
On a more positive note, the Museum’s insurance carrier, Chubb Insurance,
has it all covered including the cars. And on an even more positive note, Chevrolet
is going to oversee the repairs and restoration of the damaged cars -- not only the
two it owns but also the six owned by the museum. According to Wendell the
Skydome section will be fully operational by August of this year. In the meantime,
there’s a viewing window where Museum visitors can get a look at the sinkhole.
There’s lots of other great stuff in this issue, so enjoy the read!
