BOWLING GREEN, Kentucky (AP) -- A massive sinkhole that swallowed eight cars at the National Corvette Museum in February has become such an attraction that officials want to preserve it — and may even put one or two of the cars back inside the hole.

The board of the museum voted Wednesday to preserve a large section of the sinkhole that opened up beneath the museum in February.

The damaged cars toppled like toys amid rocks, concrete and dirt. The cars carry a total value believed to exceed $1 million, and the extent of damage varies widely.

Museum officials say attendance is up nearly 60 percent from March to the start of this week.

The museum is located close to where Corvettes are made by General Motors.
