The "Rides with Jay Thomas" crew headed to the Speak Easy restaurant in Moorhead, Minn., this week to take a look at a 1931 Auburn 898. This car has been inside the Speak Easy since the restaurant was built in 1974 and there's no way of getting it out unless they tear down the walls.

Larry Hauger takes Jay through the car and shares some stories of how the Auburn may have unconfirmed ties to a well-known mobster.

"Rides" is hosted by radio personality, Minnesota native and North Dakota resident Jay Thomas. The show features cool cars or just about anything with an engine. Know of a ride in the region that Jay's just got to see? Email him at
