Papa John's Founder Finds His Car

Now this is a pretty cool story that has a happy ending.

With the help of a $250,000 reward, the founder of the Papa John's pizza chain has finally reunited with the muscle car he sold years ago to help keep his family's business afloat.

John Schnatter sold the gold-and-black 1971 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 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.

I have always like Papa Johns Pizza and it is cool that he was able to get reunited with the car that pretty much launched his corporation. Hmm, if I were superstitious I would go long Papa John's stock right now because that car might bring his company good luck. That is from the Scrooge McDuck school of Number One Dime talismans.
