[VIDEO] Time Lapse Video of the National Corvette Museum's Sinkhole Restoration


It was the morning of February 12, 2014 that changed everything for the National Corvette Museum. Just before 6:00 am, a large sinkhole opened up inside the Museum’s Skydome, swallowing eight Corvettes and leaving a hole roughly forty feet wide by 40 feet deep.
