Eight rare cars were damaged when a sinkhole opened up underneath the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY recently, and the museum plans to display the wrecked cars, damage and all.

All of the vehicles will eventually be shipped to Michigan and fully repaired, but before they are fixed, the Museum will display the cars for a short period of time. Museum spokeswoman Katie Frassinelli told The Detroit Free Press that there have been a number of demands from the public to see the cars as they are now.

    I want to cry when I see those especially that Black:Red 62 that be fixed and fixed by the best, alleviates the intractable pain of seeing our family in such a weird unexplainable accident.
