Museum Plans To Display Sinkhole-Damaged Cars

CREATED Feb 21, 2014

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - Curious to see the damage that a huge sinkhole inflicted on eight classic cars at the National Corvette Museum? The Kentucky attraction plans to give visitors a close look.

Museum spokeswoman Katie Frassinelli said the cars will go on display before they're taken to Michigan for repairs. She said the museum has heard from people wanting to see the damage.

The vehicles were consumed when the earth opened up last week beneath a display area when the Bowling Green museum was closed. No injuries were reported.

Frassinelli said work to retrieve the cars nearest the surface could start in a couple of weeks.

She said the museum plans to display the damaged cars from April through July.

More cars will be added when recovered. Chevrolet is in charge of restoring the cars.
