What we're about

HISTORY OF The Midnight Sun Street Rod Association (MSSRA) was
founded in the fall of 1974 by ten street rodders and
incorporated in 1979. Today, the MSSRA is the largest and
most active car club in the State of Alaska with over 200
members and growing.

While MSSRA is a street rod club at heart, it is unique in
that it is an open vehicle club. Members have muscle cars,
sports cars, street machines, trucks, original cars, and of
course, street rods. Many of the MSSRA events are
attended by members of other clubs such as the Antique
Motor Mushers, Air Cooled Club, Valley Cruzers, and
Corvette Club or those who may not be a member of any

The largest car event in the State is the Jay Ofsthun
Memorial Show and Shine, which is held the first Sunday in
August every year. It was started in 1979 by MSSRA
member Ed Park and Antique Auto Musher member Jay
Ofsthun. The event takes place on the Park Strip in
downtown Anchorage. The intent was to have a "Fun Day
with Cars" at no cost to participants, no cost to spectators,
and no stress of awards. It remains a free event today.
Participants come from all across Alaska, Canada, and the
lower 48. We expect over 350 cars on display this year!

Membership fee for MSSR is $30/year. If you would like to join, contact the Organizer of this group.
