It turns out the sinkhole that swallowed cars at the National Corvette Museum has been good for business.

Back in February, the sinkhole swallowed eight corvettes at the attraction in Bowling Green, Kentucky. It was captured on surveillance video.

A sinkhole opened up and swalled 8 collectible Chevrolet Corvettes Wednesday at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Staff says 'tears were shed' over the loss of the classic cars. VPC

Now, a museum spokesperson says after the mishap, attendance went up 56% in March.

So the museum is considering preserving the sinkhole, and the one car that remains stuck in it.

The other seven were lifted out in March. Some of those vehicles will be restored. The ones that can't be, will be part of a permanent display about the sinkhole.
