Maple Ridge, British Columbia (May 16, 2006) – Speed Tech Performance, (STP) manufacturers of aftermarket products for the 1967–69 Camaro, 1970–81 second generation Camaro, 1968–74 Nova, 1964–72 A Body and the 1994–96 B Body Impala SS, has announced the development of a worldwide discount purchasing program. Effective immediately, all products manufactured by STP will be offered at a 5% discount to currently employed police, firefighters and military service men and women.
Terry Betts, co-owner of the company stated, “We want to show our appreciation to all of the men and women who are often in dangerous situations as they serve and protect. My partner and I are both members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, with prior military experience and are very aware of the potential dangers you face every day.”
Many soldiers leave home with an unfinished restoration project in their garage, and the thought of finishing it upon their return reminds them that there is something to look forward to. Police and firefighters have daily stress in their lives as well, and while it’s not easy transitioning from the type of work they do to a relaxed atmosphere, a hobby is often what they need most to unwind.
Betts and his partner, Todd Balaban, were inspired to do something after hearing about SEMA ’s participation in helping to restore a 1968 Camaro owned by Shane Colton. Shane and his son, Lance, were in the process of restoring the car when Shane was killed in Iraq . “The amount of help that poured in nationwide was overwhelming,” Betts commented. “Restoring vintage cars has always been a dream for some people, and we want to be a small part of those dreams.”
