Don't Be Wimpy -- Buy Wympee

Recommended Posts

Wympee's Hamburgers in Dayton, Ohio, closed about a year ago and is being converted to something a bit more upscale named "Olive, an Urban Dive". The new owners say they will retain the exterior though they have stripped the insides. That interior was lined with metal panels which are for sale on eBay. The listing refers to them as Lustron but, since the Wympee building predates the Lustron corporation by nearly a decade (1938 vs. 1947) that's not quite accurate. Still, if you've got a truck and a buddy to help with the loading, you can pick up some diner history.
