Corvette Museum Sinkhole... an American Sportscar Tragedy

So by now you have all probably heard about the Corvette Museum sinkhole in Bowling Green, Kentucky.  8 Corvette's were harmed, including two cars on loan from General Motors.  It's a dark day, indeed.  If you need to take a moment to reflect on this awful event, I completely understand.  Also, if you want to see cool security footage of the floor collapsing, do read on!
Well, first you should probably get some context for the situation. 

Here you can read up on the story as it was covered in the New York Times.

Here's the ABC coverage of the event:

And here's the raw footage of the collapse caught by the security camera (two angles!):

After the sinkhole ate the poor Corvettes, a crew sent down a remote control helicopter drone with a camera to survey the damage up close. 

Well, that's enough horror and tragic loss for one day.  Hopefully you have enough tissues in the house to dry your eyes and enough drink to ease your soul. 

Also, if you hear about any amazing deals on a restored Corvette in the Kentucky area in the next few months it's probably too good to be true.  Watch your back, consumer!
