Owner of defunct Pa. diner offers it for free

HUNTINGDON, Pa. (AP) - September 21, 2008 Jerry Grubb is offering to give away his beloved former eatery in central Pennsylvania for free.

There's only one catch: The new owner must transport the 1950s-style restaurant to a new location and reopen it.

Grubb's Diner was a 24-hour institution in Huntingdon until it closed last year to make way for a new pharmacy. Grubb then had the 68-foot-long silver landmark hauled to a temporary storage area while awaiting a buyer.

The diner was recently appraised for $100,000. But Grubb is willing to negotiate a lower price or donate it to the right person.
