Want to know what's even sweeter? The Hennessey Venom GT captured the world's fastest production car title from... the Shelby SSC Ultimate Aero, another American car! Feels good to be number one (shutupabouthockeylalalalalalalaIcan'thearyou).
A sinkhole has developed at the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green. 8 cars so far in it pic.twitter.com/3NpFNii13f— Matt Jones (@KySportsRadio) February 12, 2014
A 40 foot sinkhole opened up early this morning at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY.
The damaged cars include a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder and a 2009 ZR-1 "Blue Devil" both on loan from General Motors; the Blue Devil was so named for the alma mater of then-GM CEO Rick Wagoner, Duke, as company staff tried to sway him to approve the ultra-high performance model. Also damaged were a 1962 Black Corvette, 1984 PPG Pace Car, 1993 Ruby Red 40th Anniversary Corvette, and 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 Corvette, all owned by the museum, as well as the 1 millionth Corvette produced from 1992 and the 1.5 millionth from 2009.
Staff removed one car, an irreplaceable 1983 Corvette, but are leaving the other cars in the Sky Dome until the structure has been assessed.
Melbourne entrepreneur Steve Sammartino and Romania-based Raul Oaida created a full-sized, fully-functional car that runs on air. The wheels and some of the vehicle's support structure are made from non-LEGO parts, but the engine is made entirely from LEGO pieces.
