Hi,
 
When #100 was removed from a suburban Philly restaurant about 15 years ago she was rumored to be headed out to western central PA (Altoona/Johnstown). Anyone know where she wound up?

It is supposed to be in Windber, PA, which is just east of Johnstown.  
 
I sent a letter to the last owner of record regarding the car, but never rec'd a response.  It's probably time for a follow-up.

Hey Guy's,
 I live in State College, Pa.  
    Where is this place located?  I'll take a ride and find out for uses.

Jeff, I don't know exactly where in Windber the car is located, but the owner's name is Edward Metka.  
 
He supposedly also owns a bunch of PCC trolley cars (ex-Septa), which might be a help in locating his building in Windber.  I've been trying on Microsoft's Maps and Directions, which has a hybrid aerial photo feature, but haven't had any luck to date.
