Two years after eight of their prized cars plummeted into a sinkhole, the National Corvette Museum has opened an exhibit commemorating the incredible event.

The 20-foot-deep sinkhole tore through the Bowling Green, Kentucky, museum on Feb. 11, 2014, swallowing some of the country’s most admired sports cars, including a vintage 1962 black Corvette. No one was inside the museum at the time, and there were no injuries.

Dramatic surveillance footage captured the cars tumbling into the abyss. It became a headline-making, viral sensation. The museum says the video has been viewed more than 8.6 million times.

The Corvettes have been recovered — two have been restored — but museum employees said Friday the lore of the sinkhole has continued to draw record numbers of visitors.
