This week on "Rides with Jay Thomas," Jay meets with Dan Caswell of northern North Dakota to run through his 1957 Mercury Turnpike Cruiser.

Caswell is an encyclopedia of knowledge when it comes to this car. He walks Jay through all the features of this Mercury, including things like signal-seeking radio technology, powered seats and windows, and everything in between.

On "Rides," if it’s cool, has a story and a motor, it can be on the show.

"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
