Sad news to share. Around 5:40 a.m. this morning a large sinkhole open inside the National Corvette Museum’s Skydome. Eight Corvettes were damaged when this occurred. Six of these are owned by the museum & two were on loan from General Motors. Thankfully, no one was around when this occurred.
As of the last update I heard, the remaining Corvettes were safely removed from the Skydome.
While obviously access to the Skydome is off limits, the museum did open today. I am sure it will take some time for all of the proper officials to assess the situation. But, I do believe the museum intends to make repairs as soon as possible.
If you are going to be in the area, stop in at the museum & show them support. I’m sure they would appreciate it!
