In this week's segment of Rides with Jay Thomas, Jay meets up with Ben Braaten to take a look at his 1930 Ford Coupe. Ben spent 8 years reviving this Ford in his garage.

It was a shell of a car when he started and by picking up some painting and upholstery skills along the way, he was able to restore everything himself. On Rides, if it’s cool, it has a motor and you can drive it, it can be on Rides.

"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
