September 21 Aero Diner Classic Car Cruise

Post by 69_RAG_TOP on Tue Sep 21, 2010 10:09 pm

The POM oldies band played a live performance of 50s music at the famous Aero Diner. This is absolutely iconic Automotive history.

The Aero Diner is located on the Boston Post Road in Windham Connecticut. This Diner is a 1958 "Bramson", manufactured by the Bramson Engineering Co., Oyster Bay, New York. This is one of only two diners ever built by Bramson, a manufacturer of hospital equipment. The fate of it's twin is unknown. The diner was originally sold to Mr. Leo Adamik of East Hartford and was operated as the Boulevard Diner in the early 1960's. With redevelopment of Connecticut Boulevard, the diner was sold and moved briefly to Southbury, CT and then to Route 32 in South Windham. It was successfully operated as the South Windham Diner until 1995. Unfortunately, the diner then sat unused for a number of years; finally being donated to the American Diner Museum and then being offered for sale. It was purchased by the current owners in February, 2005 and shortly thereafter moved to the present location.

Although the diner was in reasonable condition at the time of it's most recent move, it still required a tremendous amount of restoration and the construction of a new kitchen. The manufacturer's 1958 advertisement claims that the "Bramson is built like a battleship" and, like a battleship, it leaked rainwater in from every imaginable spot! Although there is no instruction book on how to restore a 50's diner, every effort was made in the restoration to return it to its original condition.

Get your motor runnin'. Head out on the highway Lookin' for adventure. And whatever comes our way. 1978 Pontiac Trans Am WS6, W72 Engine. bored .030 over Coded WC, 4-speed, Forged rods, pistons, 6X Heads Hays performance clutch, Flowmaster 40 Series 3" stainless dual exhaust, Hooker super competition, Ceramic coated long tube headers, 4 core HD radiator, Edelbrock Performer Series Carb

I like the pics. The diner does make a good background for the cars. Cool.
