This week on Rides with Jay Thomas, we’re talking about a 1965 Impala, but this story is about so much more than the actual car.

It’s about getting a young kid in the garage to spend some quality time with his dad. We also run through a collection of flaked out, two-wheeled works of art.

Plus, we’ll tell you all about a special 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T and why sometimes, it’s all about the combination when it comes to rare cars. From oil cans and Tonka toys to ammo boxes and other childhood joys, wait until you see the different collections we found inside one north central North Dakota garage.
