Who ever said there was no such thing as a FREE LUNCH??? If you own a Chevrolet Camaro, you can get yourself a free large, one-topping pizza TODAY ONLY, Wednesday August 26, 2009, at any Papa John’s pizza restaurant. This promotion is to celebrate the fact that John Schnatter, the founder of the Papa John’s, was able to locate his own original Camaro which he sold back in 1983 when he was just 21 years old. He sold the car to help his father save his bar from bankruptcy, which was located in Jeffersonville, Indiana. The money was used to help fix & save the bar, and the bar is where John Shattner started selling Pizzas - the rest is history.

The Camaro was purchased by Jeff Robinson in 2004 for $4,500.00, who agreed to return the car to Schattner, after a friend of his heard about the search by the pizza executive during a preseason NFL football game interview & told him about it. Robinson also received a check for $250,000.00 for returning the car – not a bad return on his investment!

Although a free pizza is not so bad, either...
