One of the flashiest signs of spring is when well-maintained classic cars take to the Twin Cities streets. This weekend, the Minnesota State Fairgrounds will be showcasing over 100 hot rods, customs, street machines, and motorcycles at the 57th Annual GSTA Rod & Custom Spectacular. Whether you're a hobbyist who hopes to rebuild your own vehicle someday or just someone who appreciates a sparkly paint job, there will be plenty to take in. Folks will be able to chat with car owners, watch competitions, snack on food from vendors, and enjoy '60s tunes from KYX Band. You might, however, feel a little bummed as you ride home in your Honda Civic. For more info, website www.gstarod-custom.com for more info.
