John Deere tractor enthusiasts get one last ride in before the snow

Last Wednesday, more than 60 people attended the WHO Tractor Ride in Ogden, Iowa, which is the last tractor event of the season before the weather turns cold until planting begins in the spring, according to the Ogden Reporter.

The media outlet states that Jim and Carol Kozak were one of the dozens of riders, who drove their antique John Deere tractor that was purchased in 1999. After buying it, driving the machine quickly became a new hobby for the couple. To ensure they could always do it together, Jim installed what he called the "buddy seat"- a two-person seat that is usually only used at the dealership when experts teach buyers how to drive the tractor.

The Kozaks weren't the only couple that took part in the ride, which started and ended at the Farm Progress Show Expo near Boone. Couples rode side by side, one in front of the other and one couple even had his and her tractor decorations.

The event was a part of the Great Iowa Tractor Ride, which WHO Newsradio 1040 sponsors every year.
