A number of used John Deere tractors were present at the annual Waterloo Farm Museum Antique Tractor Show in Michigan, as residents and visitors from around the state came together to celebrate their love for vintage farm equipment, according to the Chelsea Standard.
Michigan Live reported that a number of residents were especially happy about the event, as they got to ride around on their favorite pieces of machinery and show off these models to the local children and other guests.
"I’ve always wanted one just like this," Brian Grosshans, a Gregory resident said as he showed off the shiny green and yellow John Deere tractor.
Grosshans had purchased a 1949 John Deere R-series tractor in 1992, and he has restored the model to its original condition and continues to drive it all over his property and around town. He had ridden on the same type of machine growing up, and the vintage equipment was a purchase he had no second thoughts about.
Other residents came simply to see the show.
"I grew up on the farm, but now we live in town so I think this helps them connect with their family history," Allen Knight, an attendee who brought his son to the event, told the news outlet.
