National Corvette Museum sinkhole filled

Hallelujah! The National Corvette Museum sinkhole has been filled!

The United States has spent the past year reeling from the tragedy that befell eight shining examples of America’s sports car—the iconic Corvette—on February 12, 2014 (#NeverForget). That was when eight classic Vettes were swallowed whole by a sinkhole that opened up at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

The healing process began when we saw the sinkhole begin to be filled by a limestone and sand and patriotic pride mixture, but the American people couldn’t experience true catharsis until the sinkhole had been entirely filled.

Well, rest easy, America: the National Corvette Museum sinkhole has been all filled up, like a red solo cup at an all-American Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill restaurant. Grab some tissues and check out this emotional video footage of the newly-filled National Corvette Museum sinkhole:

Inspiring stuff.

Heroic sinkhole project manager, Zach Massey, says now that they’ve got the hole in the museum (and in our hearts) filled up, they will finalize the subgrade, plan the electrical wiring layouts for the floor, and put a few more finishing touches on the flooring this week.

We salute you, sinkhole project manager, Zach Massey. Godspeed, soldier.

    We were just there 3 weeks ago and found the museum to be very well done and very informative. That said, someone needs to use spell check when making the signs … one of them read “SINHOLE” instead of SINKHOLE.

    • Mitch McConnell

      The Sinhole was the name of a club I used to go to when I was younger.

  • Dennis Cole

    Perhaps it was on purpose. What if it’s called the “Sinhole” because they buried all of the bad things we’ve done down there?

  • Richard Fitch

    Big Deal! They built a defective structure on unstable ground.

    It collapsed and they immediately began to milk money out of the mishap. Month after month, fundraising all over the country. They should have apologized and just fixed the place.

    These people are a lot more about money then they are about Corvettes.
