Despite my being still Camaro-less, we were in the mood for pizza tonight and had a coupon, so we picked up some pizzas at Papa John's. The parking lot was filled with Camaros from nearly all generations (sadly no 5th gens). Its times like that that remind me how the Camaro's greatness goes beyond the car itself to the heritage, tradition, and community that goes with it. I was so upset I didn't have a Camaro myself yet, and it had nothing to do with the pizza. I just wanted to be a part of that Camaro world. Good times.

Also the sentimental value, as how John Schnatter saw his 1971 1/2 car. He in turn allowed the nation to experience all of the heritage, tradition, and community as a by product of what his Camaro meant to him, which worked out for everybody all over the country. Truly a wonderful, outstanding act of generosity by "Papa" John Schnatter. Thank you kindly, and sincerely from all of us at camaro5.com!

This was a really awesome promotion! Not only did we get free pizza, it was pretty cool seeing all the Camaro's go to Papa Johns. When I got there, a 4th Gen was already in the parking lot and I parked right next to it. I went in, ordered my pizza and the guy told me, "The only thing we ask, is that we take a picture of you and your pizza standing next to your Camaro." I say no problem!! Then I go sit down (they were pretty busy, I went at dinner time) and the girl I sat next to just so happened to be the owner of the 4th Gen next to me. We talked a little Camaro talk for a while, then she got her pizza and had her picture taken and was out! Not 2 seconds after she left, another 4th Gen Camaro pulled into her space. Three young girls got out, came in, asked for their pizza, and then went back outside to wait as they stared at my 5th Gen! Then I got my pizza, had my picture taken and chatted with the girls parked next to me a bit before I left. As I was leaving, a '69 pulled in and was waiting for my parking spot as I was pulling out, I gave him a thumbs up and told him nice car; he returned the favor as well! I really like talking to other camaro owners, this was a great promotion. Thanks again Papa Johns!! And the employees at that location were super cool!!

I got my free pizza...I was the 1st 5th gen there at 8pm tonight when I went...met a few other Generations too...then, a 2010 Black RS!!...told everyone about Camaro5.com and no one had heard of it, but I had my Cam5.com decal on my back window, so I think I recruited a few new members for our "happy forum family"...was just like a Camaro meet...really, really cool...had a lot of fun "talking Camaros" while we were waiting for our pizzas...thanks, Papa John...YOU ROCK!!!...

I too recieved an awesome pizza from Papa Johns! Great deal for us Camaro owners. Apparently not too many people knew about this up in my neck of the woods as I was the first one and it was mid afternoon, but the manager did take my picture as his district was having a competition to see who had the nicest Camaro come in. His DM had previously been chosen as posting the nicest Camaro pic but when he posted my 2010 IOM 2SS/RS he also included the words "not anymore". Great deal Papa Johns thanks!

Got mine...Left, Jack Maxton Chevrolet...had my oil changed, called from the parking lot when it was done, and drove over to Papa John's. The young man was nice...gave me my pizza and asked if he could take a picture of me next too my Camaro. I had my favorite FOOSE t-shirt on and smiled.

This was a cool promo Papa John's...THANKS !!!

Drove all the way home to get my car but it was monsooning so I drove my duallie to the Pappa Johns. Did not get a free pizza because I did not drive it but I showed them pictures on my Crackberry and my insurance card, so thay gave me a huge discount. It was not raining at their location. I saw all kinds of super clean 4th gens that I didn't know exsisted in the area.I think it was a really cool promotion. Congrats John for getting your Camaro.

I thought this was great. A fellow camaro owner got denied at his local Papa John's and showed them how he felt.

Well we went an got our "one free pizza per customer, per Camaro" last evening. Was a nice evening for a convertible cruise. Didn't ask for any info, I just pointed to the car in the parking lot. Didn't even occur to me to take pictures or anything. Did see one other Camaro there, a 4th gen black SS (told him about this site).
Only downside I can see to this is now we'll have a half dozen "who got their free pizza" threads for the mod's to merge. There's one already.

We get it, but what does getting 2 or more pizzas from this promotion have to do with the rich not wanting Camaros but are upset by the lack of attention their cars receive? Sounds like you need a hug more than a slice of pizza...and maybe a few grammar lessons as well. I have a B.A. in English and am certified to teach high school English? Could I offer you a free lesson my friend?
Congrats on being an English teacher. (Dude?) His point is very valid and after reading a few more recent posts it's obvious that people were taking advantage of the situation. A location near me was just giving away free pizza for 'saying' you had a Camaro. Several cars came and picked up their 'Camaro Pizzas' in Camrys, Minvans, etc. It sounds like some locations were hit harder than others and some people were not able to get a pizza at all. Not exactly what the event was supposed to be about.

Anyone who got denied could call corporate and they will probably send you a voucher for a free pizza.

BTW, they have about $1 in that pizza they give away.

How do you think that John got rich?

"To redeem, Camaro owners must arrive at their nearby Papa John’s restaurant in their Camaro to order and pick up their free pizza. Limit one pizza per Camaro, and one visit per Camaro."

Well I really don't see where it says I can drive to as many Papa John's stores as I want. That would be:
"To redeem, Camaro owners must arrive at their nearby Papa John’s restaurantS in their Camaro to order and pick up their free pizza. Limit one pizza per Camaro, per store, and one visit per Camaro."
I beleive the spirit of the give-away was for people to recieve ONE free pizza. But I guess this is America where some people take advantage of a situation and ruin a good thing for others. Probably why it was limited to one day only.

And yes it only cost them a dollar per pizza, they don't have to lease a store, pay utilities, pay employees, pay for insurance, etc., etc.

We talked it out privately. He did explain to me what he meant and it is all cool. No hard feelings at all.
