About a month ago, tragedy struck the National Corvette Museum when a sinkhole opened up
underneath the facility, swallowing eight cars and causing tons of carnage in the process. We saw it all on video
, learned how Chevy would extract the damaged 'Vettes
, and even checked in on the repair process
. Terrible stuff, for sure.
But is it a conspiracy, all part of the government's "sinkhole hoax plan?" According to World Wide Web whiz Zurnmusic
, that's exactly what's going on here.
In a nearly nine-minute-long video posted to YouTube
, and discovered by our friends at Autoweek
, one guy goes through the process of debunking what he says is obviously just a bunch of fakery. His proof? "The floor looks like it's made out of paper ... uh, styrofoam." And that blue 2009 Chevy Corvette ZR1 found in the sinkhole? It's obviously a Hot Wheels car, duh. In fact, the exact same
die-cast car that you can buy online. Tricky, tricky.
Have a look below
to watch the entire conspiracy video for yourself. And if you're of like mind, please be sure to tell us all
about it in the Comments.

made a splash with its retro design for the reborn, fifth-generation of its Camaro way back when the first concept car debuted at the 2006 Detroit Auto Show
. Since then, we've watched the production car age rather gracefully while remaining a strong competitor to the Ford Mustang
and Dodge Challenger
. Still, the current model is getting a bit long in the tooth, meaning we can start speculating about what the sixth-generation model will look like.
According to Edmunds
, the next Camaro will be much more Charles Darwin than Simon Bolivar. In other words, expect an evolution of the current car's design, rather than a clean-sheet restart. That's actually pretty surprising considering GM is preparing to shift the Camaro to the rear-drive architecture that underpins both the Cadillac ATS
. Generally, maintaining styling when a car switches platforms presents some challenges, but we're quite happy to see the Camaro will retain the same general look. Muscle cars and retro styling work quite nicely together.
"The difference between the existing and redesigned [Camaro] is not drastically different," an inside source told Edmunds
. "It looks like a worked-over current-model Camaro. It is on a different platform, so that is a significant difference, but when they modified it to be on a different platform, the styling did not change that much."
also reports that the sixth-gen Camaro should debut in just under a year, at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show as a 2016 model.
