Sawyers
Harrisburg, PA
Sawyers is a 1962 DeRaffele. The diner, originally located in Allentown, PA (top two rows of photos), closed in 2002 and was scheduled to move to Milwaukee, WI in 2003. However, the deal fell through and plans for Cleveland, and Philadelphia never worked out either. The diner sat for two years in a storage lot with the incredible neon sign laying on the ground near the street. In 2006, the diner was moved to Harrisburg (bottom row of photos) where it reopened as a restaurant and club known as the Tom Sawyer Diner Entertainment Complex. In 2006, I was told that the neon sign was being restored and would be installed in the patio area. The black pole has been there for years. However, as of 2016, the sign is still missing. The diner is now known as Sawyers. It is more of a club now than restaurant. For more, see this website. [map]

It was then shipped to PA where it was restored and is now on display at the Antique Automobile Club of America Museum. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2.
