Yeah, I got an email from the NCM - pretty strange. :eek2:
Fortunately no one was in the building at the time. I hope the damaged cars can be repaired.

That is not going to be a cheap or easy fix. I hope it does not compromise other parts of the building. I also hope the ground is better under the plant and the new race track...

I wonder if insurance would help pay for the damages? Not sure how that works i.e. need special coverage, like flood insurance? Any insurance experts out there?

From the NMC:
Eight Corvettes were affected by this incident.

Those cars include:
•1993 ZR-1 Spyder on loan from General Motors
•2009 ZR1 “Blue Devil” on loan from General Motors

The other six vehicles were owned by the National Corvette Museum including:
•1962 Black Corvette
•1984 PPG Pace Car
•1992 White 1 Millionth Corvette
•1993 Ruby Red 40th Anniversary Corvette
•2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 Corvette
•2009 White 1.5 Millionth Corvette

None of the cars affected were on loan from individuals. The Skydome exhibit area of the Museum is a separate structure connected to the main Museum. A structural engineer is now on-site to assess the existing damage and stability of the surrounding areas

The big risk I see - look underneath the spire... or the lack of anything being there. The footings are totally gone.

Tom, I do believe we were on the other side of the pillar.
Hard to tell without seeing where the entrance is. We did walk around that area many times during our fests.
