The Saline Area Historical Society hosted a Vintage Truck and Tractor Show to commemorate the return of a 1939 Saline fire truck that had been housed at the Michigan Firehouse Museum in Ypsilanti, according to the Saline Reporter.
Visitors were treated to a display of antique and used farm equipment along with the fire truck, as the celebration served as a testament to the agricultural history of the area. The tractors that were one of the main attractions of the event were brought by the Tri-County Two Cylinder Club, reported the news source.
"The trucks are great. The kids always love them," Jan Harmon, historical society marketing director for the historical society, told the Reporter. "But I really like the John Deere."
Each of the vintage John Deere tractors were made before 1960, with the oldest model being built back in 1935. Children and adults took turns riding on the older vehicles, the news source reported.
The Tri-County Two Cylinder Club brings its used farm equipment to a variety of fairs and festivals across the state to try and share its love for the vehicles, according to the organization's website.
MachineFinder was created by John Deere in 1998. Since then we have served millions of visitors, tens of thousands of pieces of equipment and integrated with our entire dealer network.
