"All of these have a unique story behind them,'' said museum executive director Wendell Strode. "They're special.'' He said one of the cars that fell through was so treasured its owner never drove it in the rain.

When the ground collapsed it set off an alarm and an automatic call to the fire department, said Bowling Green city spokeswoman Kim Lancaster. The sinkhole appeared in a part of the museum which has a dome-shaped roof.
