"TV CORRESPONDENT: Michelle Knapp's car is like a museum exhibit. Hundreds of people have been coming by since Friday to look at the hole in her trunk. What damaged her car was this rock. Already, she says, she has had several calls from museums and collectors wanting to buy it and the trunk of her car."
