Papa John’s boss finds Camaro, gives free pizza

By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Camaro owners across the country, and right here in Albany got free pizzas from Papa John's on Wednesday.

The founder of the restaurant chain, John Schnatter, sold his beloved 1971 Camaro back in 1983 to save the family business and launch Papa John's.

He recently tracked down that car and celebrated by giving away a large one topping pizza to any Camaro owner who came to a Papa John's today.

In Albany about two dozen owners showed up in their Camaros, some even took pictures for the company's website.

Schnatter made public pleas and started a website to help track down his old car.

He paid the current owner $250,000 thousand dollars for it and kicked in another $25,000 thousand to the people who tracked him down.
