This week on Rides with Jay Thomas, Jay takes a trip to western North Dakota to sit down with Gene Hoyt and get the lowdown on his gorgeous Pontiac GTO.

This is a car Gene and his wife bought brand new back in 1969 and Hoyt has 40 plus years of stories to go with it. From ordering the car brand new at the dealership, to selling it, tracking it down again and restoring it to its original glory, Gene fills Jay in on all the details of this prized Pontiac.

"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
