Off topic, but what the heck! I need to buy coca cola in the metal bottles - are they in your area?

I need to buy several dozen of coca cola in the metal (aluminum) 'coca cola shaped' bottles.  I think they are something like 8oz:

Does anyone know where to get these / are they in supermarkets in your area?  And what area is that?

THANKS!

You might get them directly from your coke company.
If you know someone who owns a business, or is a business manager, ask them to order you some from the local coke company.

NY Metro area.
I found a place in phila for $1 a bottle.  for 8.5oz it seems expensive, but my local supermarket is selling 6 packs of glass 8 oz bottles for $4 (66c a bottle).

being a techie / over analytical, its hard to want to pay that when you can get 2 liters for 77c on sale (I say that with a smile - I know - you are paying for the novelty of the bottle itself)

for what it's worth, the UPC on the 1 aluminum bottle I have is:

049000049930

You can google it and it comes up on some amazon pages, in the UPC database and news articles about it.

I'm hoping someone here just sees them in the supermarkets near them!?!  Or I have to go to a store near me and give them this UPC and see if they can get it?!

I've searched and close to $2 is the best I can find. They do not seem to be popular or you'd see them everywhere.

Coke is selling 12 ounce cans like crazy.
One of my stores had:
buy 2 twelve packs and get 3 twelve packs free = 60 cans for $12.06 = 20 cents each.
I found places in N.Y. selling them, but the cheapest was $1.95.

give them a call:
The Soda Shop
125 Chambers Street, #4
New York, NY 10007
(212) 571-1100

very unlikely you find very different prices from one market to another. They are charging what they have to based on what they pay for them from coke.
