BOWLING GREEN, KY (NBC) - 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. It was captured on surveillance video.

Now, a museum spokesperson says after the mishap, attendance went up 56 percent 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, and some of those vehicles will be restored.

The ones that can't be will be part of a permanent display about the sinkhole.
