BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - Curious to see the damage that a huge sinkhole inflicted on eight classic cars at the National Corvette Museum? The Kentucky attraction plans to give visitors a close look.

Museum spokeswoman Katie Frassinelli says the cars will go on display before they're taken to Michigan for repairs. She says the museum has heard from people wanting to see the damage.

The vehicles were consumed when the earth opened up last week beneath a display area when the Bowling Green museum was closed. No injuries were reported.

Frassinelli says work to retrieve the cars nearest the surface could start in a couple of weeks.

She says the museum plans to display the damaged cars from April through July.

More cars will be added when recovered. Chevrolet is in charge of restoring the cars.
