The Deere Hunters Two Cylinder Club held its annual tractor parade, as the vintage tractors paraded through the streets of Shartlesville, Pennsylvania, to Tilden Township, according to the Reading Eagle.

Members of the club are "green-blooded" John Deere devotees, as they only use the specific brand of tractors and owning a piece of this farm equipment is a prerequisite for joining the organization.

"We call it the heirloom tractor," Mervin Degler, a retiree and event participant, told the Eagle about his 1941 John Deere Model H tractor. "That was the first tractor my father bought, and it's staying in the Degler family."

Harvey Bashore, president of the Rough and Tumble Engineers Historical Association, told the news source that the membership in the Two Cylinder Club has grown due to a spike in the interest in antique tractors, specifically those made by John Deere.

The Rough and Tumble Engineers Historical Association is an organization of tractor and agriculture enthusiasts who celebrate the unique heritage associated with farming and the machines that make it possible, according to the organization's website.
