The Round Town Square in Blue Rapids, Kansas, will be the site of several restored antique tractors, which their owners recovered from plots of land all over the region and brought back to their original showroom glimmer, the Topeka Capital Journal reports.

According to the news source, as many as 20 restored tractors will show up at the site on Saturday, September 22, which will serve as a test practice for an upcoming project to set a new Guinness World Record. The current record will force town residents to use one tractor to pull 14 semi flat-bed trailers with 837 people riding on top.

The tractors will go on display beginning at 11 a.m. on Saturday, and remain in Round Town Square until 1 p.m. Several models of antique John Deere tractors are expected to make an appearance at the event, including John Deere Model A tractors from 1939, 1940 and 1950. Also, a John Deere Model 40 will be parked for attendants to view.

According to Tractor Data, the John Deere 40 served as a replacement for for the M, and included several variants, such as the 40s standard, utility, high-crop, 2-row utility and a crawler mode.
