The members of the Northern Nevada Antique Power Club are getting ready to host the organization's 16th annual Antique Tractor Show, according to the Gardnerville Record-Courier.
Each year the event brings more than 1,000 tractor enthusiasts to the tractor club headquarters, as visitors line up to see the many models of used farm equipment that have been kept in pristine condition by their owners, the news source reported.
"This gives people the opportunity to see these tractors at work," Wendell Newman, a club member, told the newspaper. "It demonstrates the strength and power of these old tractors."
More than 200 tractors will be featured in the event including a 1938 model of a John Deere tractor that is the oldest model in this year's celebration, according to the Record-Courier.
Shuttle services allow guests to patrol the used tractors, as the event is held on 10 acres of land in south Gardnerville.
The Northern Nevada Antique Power Club has been a staple of the area for many years, and the 130 members are known as the "collectors of old rust" due to their mission to preserve agricultural history, according to Nevada Appeal.
