If you've ever wanted to own your own railroad car diner, here's your chance.
The Cheyenne Diner is for sale for the not-so-steep price of $7,900. The only catch is, whoever buys the chrome-covered and neon-lit icon has to move it themselves.
The property owner, George Papas, has been talking to Perlman about his campaign to save the diner and is leaning toward selling and saving it instead of knocking it down to make way for a nine-story residential and commercial development.
Perlman just wants to save this historic 60-year-plus diner, which just last Sunday served its last eggs over easy (on the Jersey side). His short stint as a preservationist has a good record so far: he was able to save the Moondance Diner before it was destroyed. That diner lives on in LaBarge, Wyo.
Anyone interested in buying (and moving) the Cheyenne can contact Perlman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
