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

We have just been informed by The Minnesota State Fair Board that they have adopted the latest CDC guidelines and have cancelled all events at the Fairgrounds for at least the next 8 weeks. While we remained hopeful that we could proceed with the 64th Annual GSTA Rod & Custom Spectacular Car Show, we agree with their decision, as it is the best course of action to help protect our members, exhibitors and car show attendees. With cars entered from the Twin Cities, Northern & Southern Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin and Upper Michigan and in reviewing the quality of entries received, this years' show was on pace to be one of the, if not the best show we have ever produced. Please bear with us, we will need time to get money refunded to the near 200 individuals and companies that we have received payment from. In closing, THANK YOU to the GSTA members, Car Show Exhibitors and sponsors who have worked so hard to give you the highest quality Car Show for the past 63 years and we look forward to your support in 2021.
