Phil in the Museum showcase room.

We left the Museum at 5 pm on Mon. Feb. 10. At 4:45 am Feb 12 security was alerted because of movement in this showroom. Soon a number of valuable, irreplaceable Corvettes went down a sinkhole. This is one of the cars.

This 1983 Corvette was also in that room. I don't know if it was damaged. OnFeb. 10 it was the only 1983 left.

A person can order the Corvette from the factory and pick it up at the Museum. Here's one ready To be driven home by the owner.

What an amazing place and interesting day.

We stayed at the PilotTruck Stop in Franklin, KY.
