That tan '32 5w with the wide 5's is way cool. Thanks for posting.
Just to clear everything up on the Papa's Camaro. The one in the pictures at the event is NOT the same car that he had when he was younger and sold to keep the business. That car is a car that he got and it was made into a replica of the car he sold. After having the replica car made it did not fill the void that the car left. He then put out the finders fee and found the actual car.
That is the actual car. You can read more about it here http://jalopnik.com/5344739/how-jalopnik-reunited-papa-john-with-his-camaro
Thanks for posting the pic of my son's 'Tub. This event was special since just this past Tuesday he turned 16 years old and got his drivers license on the same day.
Earlier in the summer, he and his buddy assembled this car in less than a week with stuff we had laying around just so he would be able to cruise the grounds at the Nats by himself if wanted to. Schools starts this next week for him and he will be driving it to school on the first day. The bummer for him is, as a 16 year old the law says he can only haul one buddy in the car unless a parent is with him. (Oh well, he HAS had some fun too even when his mom has been onboard along with some of his buddies.)
The huge finders fee was just part of the grand master scheme to sell more pizza. That whole finders fee deal made it around the internet like wildfire and Papa John's got millions if not ten's of millions in free advertising from it. . I saw that finders fee link on numerous non car sites on the net, Drudge report etc, and it made national news. Pretty good for a $300k outlay
That being said I think he really wanted his old car back but he was very smart on how he did it. .
