Last Corvette pulled out of sinkhole in Kentucky

Last Corvette Pulled Out of Sinkhole in Kentucky

The last Corvette has been pulled out from the 60-foot sinkhole in Kentucky, and it's not lookin' too pretty. HLN has more.

'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.

We're going to have to agree with hosts Gayle King and Charlie Rose from "CBS This Morning" on this one ... 'I think that's buh-bye.' 'Going to the corvette heaven, isn't it.'

Nothing is fullproof, but to think that this building might have been constructed without engineering test bores. On our visit I think that they informed us that all cars were privately owned and insured, and for sale. I have seen quite a few better auto and Corvette collections around. The only option that this facility had of real interest was a visit to a new Corvette production line on certain days.

This is so sad. Those were awesome cars! Hope they rebuild them. Corvettes are a joy to look at and drive.

Some of the vettes came out fairly OK, this one, not so much.

We visited the Museum last summer. I can't believe this happened. All the cars were so nice. Horrible this happened. The sinkhole looks like maybe an underground cave or maybe where coalmine could have been? I hope they fix it because I would love to visit again.

The Corvette plant should have stayed right here in St. Louis. This would not have happened.

A corvette is lots more than a hunk of metal it is a relationship and a marriage. It is special. When plant moved from St. Louis many were heart broken. Somethings can never be the same Hope they manage to put these beauties back to what they were.
