COMP Cams will celebrate 40 years in Memphis this month. Festivities include the unveiling of a Camaro built as tribute to company COO Scooter Brothers’ 1975 US Nationals-winning race car, recently resurrected for a Ruby Anniversary overhaul.
The rebuilt convertible will be displayed at the COMP Cams booth during the Rev’n Rods and Heartland Music Tour stop on Monday, July 18, at Landers Center in Southaven, Mississippi. COMP Cams is a presenting sponsor of the tour that at each stop features a car show from noon to 6 p.m., followed by a country music concert until 9 p.m.
The iconic 1969 Camaro spent more than a decade as the company’s flagship Hot Rod Power Tour vehicle before being stored away in the company’s Research and Development department in 2010.
Since September of last year, the car has undergone a complete engine rebuild at Butler Performance in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee. V8 Speed & Resto Shop in Red Bud, Illinois, was charged with other stages of the overhaul, including under-hood modifications, the installation of a new transmission, exterior painting, interior customization and finishing touches such as wheels.
The Camaro now boasts 690 HP and 619 lb-ft of torque. It is a showcase for many COMP Cams products, as well as products from other COMP Performance Group brands including Fuel Air Spark Technology, TCI and Racing Head Service.
Mid-Southerners are invited to join COMP Cams in celebrating its 40th anniversary and unveiling the Camaro during the car show portion of the Rev’n Rods and Heartland Music Tour on July 18.
COMP Cams is providing products and other items to be given away from the event’s main stage.
