I was hoping that this was a joke, but sadly it isn't.

I guess that's what happens when you build a museum or anything in an area with limestone caves.

On the positive side. They may have lost eight cars but they gained a basement.
They still have bragging rights. How many people do you know that have 8 corvettes in their basement. LOL.

Yep, very sad.

I am sure jokes with something about Corvettes sucking so bad will be flowing like crazy!
