This weekend, the public will get its first up-close look at the sinkhole that swallowed eight cars at Kentucky's National Corvette Museum.


YIKES! Sinkhole swallows eight Corvettes at national museum


All of the cars are now out and on display at the museum in Bowling Green, KY. 

Officials say more people than ever are trekking to the museum and are anxious to see what came out of the sinkhole.

Out of the right cars that were damaged, Corvette thinks they may be able to salvage four of them.

A team of investigators think part of a cave roof collapsed following heavy rains, creating a massive sink hole back in February.

Ideas are already floating around on what should be done with the sinkhole.

"There is a possibility of leaving it here. Whether it's just a portion or all of it having a bridge over it, stairs that go down it, a glass floor on tip where you can look down on it just any ideas people have," said museum spokeswoman Katie Frassinelli. "We are talking with the construction company and engineers just to see the possibilities."

Officials say they're embracing the negative and turning into a positive and considering it a part of their history now.

If you want to see the sinkhole up close, the National Corvette Museum bash is this Thursday, Friday and Saturday. After that, museum officials are not sure when they will make the sinkhole area open to the public again.
