It’s friday, which means it is time for The News! This week it’s a special edition of The News because our intrepid news hound Greg K. (his last name takes too long to type out) is off today, so I’m filling in for man-boy wonder. No, I won’t just spout off about how awesome I think the new C-Class Benz looks (those bright blue approach lights are gorgeous), but instead I’ll share some new car news from around the Interwebz.

Let’s dive right in with these stories for Friday, March 14th, 2014:

  • New Jersey says Fughedaboutit to Tesla

  • BMW bringing every type of car possible to NY Auto Show

Breaking: Sinkhole Swallows Eight Corvettes At National Corvette Museum

Bradley Brownell February 12, 2014 The News!

The National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY experienced a nasty surprise just before 6AM this morning when a sinkhole approximately 40 feet wide and 30 feet deep opened up and swallowed eight rare and prestigious American sports cars. When the ground opened, luckily, the museum was still closed for the night, and nobody was injured, but the list of Corvettes lost is certainly disheartening. The sinkhole set off an alarm within the museum, and the local fire department was notified. Upon arrival, they found a large hole in the floor of the SkyDome “hall of fame” section of the museum, with a number of special cars resting subterranean.

While some of the cars appear salvageable, certainly a few will be reduced to no more than scrap. The damaged cars include two cars currently on loan from General Motors; a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder, and a 2009 ZR1 “Blue Devil”, as well as six vehicles owned by the museum itself; a 1962 Black Corvette, a 1984 PPG Pace Car, the 1 Millionth Corvette, the 1.5 Millionth Corvette, a Ruby Red 40th Anniversary Car, and a Mallett Hammer C5 Z06.  Some of these cars, as you can tell, are one of a kind, and can never be replaced.
