Minnesota State Fairgrounds Hosts Local Car Show

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Minnesota hot rods and race cars are on display this weekend at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds.

It’s one of the oldest custom car shows in America, the Gopher State Timing Association Car Show showcases local cars owned by collectors and crafters.

More than 100 local artists and collectors have their custom vehicles on display at the car show.

Aside from makes, models and years, owners are quick to talk about the names they give their vehicles.

One owner and crafter named his classic vehicle “Ruby Begonia” after its unique color.

“I think the neat thing about it is it looks like the paint is wet. It looks like that you could go touch it and it would be wet ’cause the colors are so deep when you look at em’,” Brian Warhol, the show’s coordinator, said.

The GSTA show is held in the Coliseum at the fairgrounds.

It runs through 9 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.

Some of the proceeds go to support Cars for Courage at the Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute.
