Roger Gonyeau has been fiddling with used tractors in some way for most of his life, according to Vermont's Burlington Free Press.
He told the paper his love of John Deere tractors started at the age of 5 because he was attracted to the sound they make. Gonyeau's neighbors back then had a farm but didn't have children.
"But they liked kids," Gonyeau told the newspaper. "I was always welcome there, and that's where I got to ride my first John Deere."
Gonyeau has restored four John Deere used tractors to their original shape. He also recently procured the very same tractor he fell in love with while he was a kid.
His hobby and love for used tractors is seen through a yearly family tradition. Different generations of Gonyeau's line come together to sport one of the 40 John Deere caps he owns in a portrait.
John Deere has its own museums where the company showcased the history of its used tractors and engines. The company said recently it will build another one in Waterloo, Iowa, which should be finished sometime next year.
