Oh dear.

Earlier this morning, eight vintage Corvettes had an unfortunate encounter with a sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

More from Automotive News:

The sinkhole is estimated to be about 40 feet wide and 20 to 30 feet deep, the museum said in a statement.

Two of the vehicles — a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder and a 2009 ZR1 Blue Devil — were on loan from General Motors.

The other six vehicles, owned by the museum, included a 1962 black Corvette; 1984 PPG Pace Car; 1992 white 1-millionth Corvette; 1993 40th anniversary Corvette; 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06; and the 2009 1.5-millionth Corvette.

Pretty rough day for ‘Vette lovers.

Sigh. It’s probably better that way. The photos are bad enough. But video? Too painful. Cars.com is already having a hard enough time trying to terms with what’s happened:

Cars.com isn’t alone, though. Plenty of others are bummed about it, too:
