John Staluppi has spent a lifetime selling cars, so successful in his trade he boasts more than two dozen dealerships and more sales than he ever could count. But even he has never seen a sale like this. Staluppi is liquidating his Cars of Dreams Museum and its 115 collector vehicles in an auction Saturday. The Batmobile, the Evel Knievel motorcycle, the lines and lines of perfectly shined cars, all of them will be gone. "I'm starting to get sad," he admits. (AP Photo/J Pat Carter)

'The owner of the final corvette pulled out of a sinkhole in Kentucky wiped tears away when he saw it.'

If you can't tell through the car's crust of mud, HLN reports it used to be a pretty sweet ride.

'This is a 2001 Mallet Hammer Z06 if you know your cars.'

This wasn't the only sweet car that took the plunge.

The sinkhole devoured 8 Corvettes back in February at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

Now with all eight out, the museum can begin the process of repairing the hole. WKYT says, 'Executive director says they'll meet with construction teams, engineers and the insurance company next week.'

They are also deciding if any of the Corvettes can be repaired.
