For people who have used John Deere tractors, the sight of antique machines rolling down the Main Street of a town is likely to conjure up a feeling of nostalgia. For others, however, amazement is shown in a number of ways.

This was certainly the case at the 12th annual Stoystown Lions Antique Tractor Festival, as models from a number of companies, including the famous John Deere green and yellow machines, we on display to visitors in the Pennsylvania town, according to the Somerset Daily American.

"Oh, they get all kind of expressions," Larry Frazier, who owns several older models, told the news outlet. "The kids get pretty wide-eyed."

Frazier, who goes around the country trying to find used tractors to repair and restore back to prime condition, noted that this show is one of his favorite and it gives people a chance to see antique, and often rare equipment, according to the Daily American.

"We had 37 tractors that went," said Seth Kaufman, one of the event's coordinators. "Well, we had a few occasional break-downs, but it was a sight."
