Put your ski boots on folks. This week on Rides with Jay Thomas, Jay gets a history lesson on an invention manufactured and built in the 1940’s in Northwood, North Dakota.

This contraption is part-airplane, part-snowmobile and is super fun to ride in. Check out the "Winter's Dream" snow machine.

"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 rides@wday.com
