BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WAAY) - The National Corvette Museum released video footage Thursday of a sinkhole that swallowed eight vintage Corvettes Wednesday morning.

The video, posted on YouTube, is security camera footage that shows the moment the floor in the Sky Dome area buckled and then opened up, swallowing eight of the nine cars on display there.

Six of the vehicles were donated to the museum. Two were owned by General Motors. 

The cars destroyed were a 1962 "Black Corvette," a 1984 PPG pace car, a 2009 ZR1 "Blue Devil," the 1992 white "1 Millionth Corvette," a 1993 ruby red "40th Anniversary Corvette," a 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 Corvette, the 2009 white "1.5 Millionth Corvette," and a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder.

The museum was open to the public Thursday.
