After personally helping reunite Papa John Schnatter with his long-lost Camaro Z28 I’m a little pissed to find out that someone at the Woodward Dream Cruise freakin’ stole the car. Police are looking for it and all Jalopnik readers should be on alert for a black-and-gold Z28 that smells conspicuously like garlic sauce.
Jalopnik played a small role in bringing Papa John's Camaro back home to Kentucky and now the Z28 itself is going small with a limited edition toy car.
In celebration of Papa John's Camaro coming home with our help, Papa John's will give a free large one-topping pizza to any Camaro owner who visits a store on Wednesday, August 26th. Full details below. You lucky mullet-mobile owners.
As we first reported yesterday, pizza magnate Papa John Schnatter has been reunited with his Camaro. This is the story of how Jalopnik made it happen and helped someone get $250,000.
Remember the $250,000 reward for finding Papa John's Camaro — the car he sold to start his pizza chain? Thanks to Jalopnik, the car's coming back to Papa John and someone's getting that $250,000.
Listening to pizza magnate "Papa" John Schnatter point out the differences between the 1972 Z28 Camaro he lost, and the one we're driving around Houston in, you come to realize his quest for the lost car is more than a gimmick.
