Corvette museum reopens with sinkhole as attraction

Posted: Updated:
BOWLING GREEN, KY (NBC) - For the first time people are being invited to get a closer look at the sinkhole that made national headlines swallowing eight classic cars at the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky.

All of the cars are now out of the hole and on display, but could the sinkhole itself become a permanent attraction?

More people are trekking into the National Corvette Museum than ever before.

"It kind of broke my heart. I never owned a corvette but the stingrays came out when I was in high school,” one man said.

A team of investigators thinks that part of a cave roof collapsed following heavy rains creating the giant hole in February.

Out of the eight cars that were damaged Corvette thinks they may be able to salvage four of them.

Now, ideas are floating around on what should be done with the sinkhole.

"There is a possibility of leaving it here. Whether it’s just a portion or all of it; having a bridge over it, stairs that go down it, a glass floor on top where you can look down on it, just any ideas people have. We are talking with a construction company and engineers to see the possibilities,” Katie Frassinelli said.

Embracing the negative and turning it into a positive.
