The MSRA of IL was founded in 1969 and is dedicated to modified cars and trucks of pre-1949 vintage. We have over 100 members. We travel to numerous out of state NSRA and Goodguys events as well as many local events and cruise nights. We host our annual Gears and Ears rod run which is open to all years and makes and attracts over 500 vehicles. We meet the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month. Membership requirements are 21 years of age or older and the ownership of a pre-'49 car or truck. It can be running or a project. If interested in membership please call or e-mail for details.
