They'll likely know tomorrow morning, so I would call early if I were you.

Ha ha, you guys and gals WAY beat me to this...I was hoping to break some new news.

Oh well.

Either way, a very cool story. If I had the scratch, I'd pay very well to track down my sold 69 "resto-mod" from way back in the day.

Either way, I salute "Pappa John" for his offer.

Not to mention, a 70 and 1/2 Camaro, even modded for the strip, is STILL a very good investment.

Well, maybe not for $250K -- but that says a lot about the devotion us Camaro owners show for our love of the car.


Sooo-----I'd bet $100 ONE of us, from this forum, can contact Pappa John, and get him to post at least once on the forum.

Who's up to the challenge?!!?!?!

We all noticed his "personal delivery" commercial a long way back, right? That car was surely the "look-alike" he settled with until the real thing was found.

Either way, Way Cool!



Go Chebby! Camaro Forever!!

The order goes under the name using the license plate number.

Guess I am lucky since this one is a frachise but they were honoring the deal. As noted in an earlier post, just call the one you were going to go to first to be sure, just in case.
Fugg the free pizza. This is a success story to be honored. Either way, I'll try tomorrow and post results later in the evening.

The one he got back also doesn't have the rocker panel trim and appears to have been repainted (no more blackout) and have received a modified exhaust (can't see the pipe behind the wheel).

*sigh* I'd love to have a '70.5-'73 to sit beside my 2010...

You'll also notice that the back was accented black, there was a trim bottom on the sides, had mud flaps, and didn't have the cut off switch for the battery on the back in the original photo. As the story states, the man who purchased this in 2004 modified it for racing and car shows. So the first thing you would do is remove excess drag and hazards (sunroof, body trim, mud flaps). Then put the battery and gas tank in the trunk which for NHRA standards requires a cut off switch accessible from the rear of the car. And lastly you would paint it to your own flavor of color. My guess is that once it was found, they went and had it painted to the original gold and black but overlooked the rear accent. Or Papa didn't want it that way.

Talking Papa John’s offers free pizza to Camaro owners

http://www.ajc.com/news/papa-johns-o...type=ynews_rss

Papa John’s Pizza is giving away free pizzas today, but only to Camaro drivers. Mustang owners need not apply.


To redeem the offer, Camaro owners must arrive at their nearby Papa John’s restaurant in their Camaro to order and pick up their free pizza. There’s a limit of one pizza per Camaro, company officials said.


The one-day offer is being made to commemorate company founder John Schnatter’s successful quest to track down his beloved 1971 Chevrolet Camaro Z28, which he sold for $2,800 in 1983. The money helped save his father’s tavern in Jeffersonville, Ind., and he used the rest to start what would become a worldwide pizza business.

Schnatter missed his cherished Camaro and spent years searching for the long-lost muscle car. He created a Web site on the search, held promotional appearances and eventually offered $250,000 to whoever found it.

A quick glance of page 1 where you intend to post wouldn't hurt.

Relax folks. Some members on here just want to make sure you get your free pizza if you're apart of the prestigious fraternity of Camaro ownership. Give giod a break.
