Schnatter sold the car in 1983 for $2,800 to help keep his family's then-struggling tavern afloat and to start his Louisville-based pizza empire. For their help in finding the car, the car's current owner, 165 miles away in Flatwooods, Ky., received $250,000, and the buyer Schnatter sold it to 26 years ago got $25,000.
The car will be displayed at the company headquarters in Louisville, replacing a replica Schnatter commissioned while he searched for his original car. http://www.papasroadtrip.com/
In honor of Schnatter's reunion with his beloved ride, Papa John's will offer a free pizza to all Camaro owners Wednesday. Pizza lovers must drive their Camaros to a Papa John's location for verification.
