Unforgiving sinkholes don't care how expensive your cars are..

I first admit this: I did not know there was a Corvette Museum.

Now I do.. I apologize to the car aficionados who will berate me for my lack of in depth knowledge  of the classic midlife crisis car..

The reason is tragic, though, at least if you like cars and the crust of the planet earth. 

It appears that a large sinkhole has swallowed 8 vehicles at the museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky..

The sinkhole is reported to be as wide as 40 feet and as deep as 30 feet or more.. *8 cars are not in it, including the following:
1993 ZR-1 Spyder on loan from General Motors
2009 ZR1 “Blue Devil” on loan from General Motors
1962 Black Corvette
1984 PPG Pace Car
1992 White 1 Millionth Corvette
1993 Ruby Red 40th Anniversary Corvette
2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 Corvette
2009 White 1.5 Millionth Corvette

New Year's Eve.. Rockin' without Dick Clark in '13

Welcome to the final minutes of the year 2012. Yes. Already. It was so looked forward to, and it is ending so quickly...

Donna Summers is playing while the Doors are swaying. Yes, it's a stroll down amnesia lane in the fast lane. Dick Clarkless 2013. No countdown with the master of Times Square this year.

The show goes on, of course. With Ryan Seacrest to help. Before Seacrest will be 'out' there will be a number of events that occur. A massive ball will drop in Times Square. Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …
