Corvette Museum to completely fill in sinkhole
By Bruce Schreiner, The Associated Press
A massive sinkhole that swallowed eight sports cars won't be a permanent attraction at the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky.
The museum's board voted Saturday to fill in the entire hole that opened up in February and became a sensation. Curiosity over the hole revved up attendance and revenue for the museum in Bowling Green.
Board members reversed course by deciding against preserving a portion of the hole. Museum officials had been leaning toward keeping part of it and putting a crumpled car back in it to memorialize what happened when the sinkhole opened up in the museum's Skydome.
The museum was closed at the time, and no one was injured.
Museum officials say keeping part of the hole open lost favour because of added costs for safety features.
