Don Groff was good enough to let us know he is restoring the GSTA Twin. Don bought the car in December of 2005. The car was last ran as a bracket car with a BBC. The Gopher State Timing Association is a local group of car clubs that run a club dragster ( eight total since 1957 but only one twin 1970 -1973 ) and hold an annual car show for fund raising. This year is the 50th show and Don has been thrashing to get the car reresurrected and presentable for this years show. There will be no paint, linkages, or hoses, but he wants to have the overall effect nicely done enough to raise interest and try to locate missing parts and info. If anyone visiting our site can help, let us know and we will get in touch with Don. Dons goal is to restore the twin to the way it looked in 1970 when it was awarded the trophy for Best Appearing car at the Indy U.S. Nationals. A great addition to the other restored twins: Freight Train, Tommy Ivo, Rico Paris, Motes-Williams, Walt Austin, Jon Pulver. Re-Created: Dragmaster Two Thing
