At 5:39 a.m. on February 12, 2014 at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky, Mother Nature struck in a very unkind way. A 40-foot sinkhole opened up inside the Skydome and eight rare and unique Corvettes took a 30-foot plunge to the bottom. The disaster was also caught on film in case anyone doubts this really happened.

There were even plans at one point to permanently keep the sinkhole because of the large crowds it drew, but ultimately the decision was made to fill it in.
