Exactly five years ago on February 12, 2014, a huge sinkhole opened up in the center of GM’s Corvette Museum, swallowing 8 classic Corvettes. You may remember the news.
Since then, GM has recovered and restored the cars, and repaired the museum floor, at a total cost of $3.2 million. In addition they built a “basement” under the floor so visitors can see the raw inside of the sinkhole, and its enormity.
On balance the event has been a blessing in disguise. With good PR work and news coverage they increased traffic through the museum by 3.5% in 2016 alone.
