Papa John Reunited With Muscle Car
Papa John’s founder John Schnatter was reunited with the muscle car he sold three decades ago for a future in the pizza business. After a nationwide search for the 1971 Z28 Chevrolet Camaro, Schnatter said that he found it in Kentucky.
Jeff Robinson, a resident of Flatwoods, Ky., bought the car a few years ago and agreed to return it to Schnatter who rewarded him with a $250,000 prize.
Schnatter said seeing the car “kind of hit me emotionally” and that it looks very much the same as it did when he sold it in 1983.
The car was sold by Schnatter to help rescue his father’s bar in Jeffersonville, Ind. Schnatter would later begin selling pizzas there.
The best part –
To celebrate the event, the Papa John’s pizza chain is offering a free large, one-topping pizza to Chevrolet Camaro owners on Wednesday.
