Corvette Museum Sinkhole

A large sinkhole opened under the floor of the National Corvette Museum, swallowing several Corvettes that will need restoring.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.

Now Ed, I have owned 10 and they were all great cars. Plus they were the best I could afford for a lone time.

If they had built a proper, regular foundation they would have had a basement instead of a sinkhole. I never understood how a great advanced country with earthquakes, inundations and hurricanes build houses that either float, sink, disintegrate or fly.

Salve,

I liked the old ones - but the new one is insanity!

Opted for the COPO if I get chosen.

There are a lot of mines in that area of the US - amazing no one got hurt.
