I know the Corvette Museum appreciates the extra attendance.
I think that it was a Wise decision for them.
God forbid that anything like that happens to the Studebaker Museum.
....But if it does........They should take advantage of the situation.

Pretty weird when a hole in the ground is a bigger draw than the cars....

Excellent Idea..
But why not make it like the Sky Bridge at the Grand Canyon..

Put the cars back in the hole, build a transparent structure on top, and use the floor space strategically allowing visitors to peer under the glass.

Might be worth an extra $5 to walk over it..

If the sinkhole opens into a cave system, why not put a staircase in there, and let people go down and tour the cave, if conditions permit? Caves are an attraction in their own right. If there is a big, roomy cavern down there, why not have a cafe down there? It would be nice and cool in the summer, and maybe warm enough in winter, with some radiant heaters.

I don't think South Bend is in an area that has karst topography. I believe it is mostly on bedrock, so not a lot of worry there.

Karst topography is bedrock; just happens to be water-soluble bedrock. (at least when the water contains a little carbonic acid)

:!: Gordon, I thoroughly enjoy your periodic posts revealing your geological knowledge. Interesting; please don't ever fail to weigh in with such nuggets :QQ: (pardon the pun). :D BP

Maybe I should dig a hole in my backyard, partially bury a few Corvette parts at the bottom, and charge admission.
