    Default Free Papa John's Pizza to all Camaro Owners - TODAY ONLY!

    That right, Tuesday August 26th, 2009 - you get a free Papa John's pizza - I guess you have to drive up with your Camaro.

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (August 25, 2009) – “Papa” John Schnatter conquered roller coasters and the sweltering Texas heat, took the mound at professional ballparks, attempted a record for the world’s highest pizza delivery, taught children how to toss pizza dough, chatted in football broadcast booths, rang the Closing Bell at NASDAQ, and met countless customers and team members as part of a nationwide Road Trip this summer, all for one purpose: finding the beloved 1971 Z28 Camaro he sold more than 25 years ago to help his dad’s tavern stay afloat and ultimately launch Papa John’s.

    Just how beloved? So much so that Schnatter, founder of the world’s third-largest pizza company, initially offered a $25,000 “finder’s fee” to the person who could produce the title to his long-lost Camaro, and later offered $250,000 to whomever could produce the title and transfer the car. The search was chronicled online at www.papasroadtrip.com, where thousands of people logged on to offer tips on how to find his car.

    I wondered what the significance of that Camaro was being that it had been in the last couple commercials. I am actually amazed he found it still driveable and not a twisted heap of rust with no motor and tranny.

    Yeah, it's an awesome story and not unique to just him. Country music star Alan Jackon had a long search (his wife found it) for an old T-bird convertable that he got and she restored it for him.

    ANYHOW, who got the pizza? Anyone?
