Since its establishment in 1954, the GSTA has been the governing organization of Minnesota's finest hot rod and custom car clubs.

For over 60 years it has given a strong, unified voice to members on these important issues:

  • Getting a safe place to drag race in Minnesota

  • Promoting and running an award-winning car show

  • Promoting safe and courteous hot rodding

  • Supporting civic events

  • Generating a good time and fellowship
