Duane Junck tells his CBS affiliate that he has been collecting the used tractors for years now and that "everything I buy goes to the Junck yard." Jokingly, he says: "Well I went to sales and stuff but they kept following me home you know."
Junck affirms that the first used tractor he ever restored was a John Deere tractor loader. "Bought a 36A," he asserts, when he first started "collecting because it was the same year as I was made." Currently, he is fixing up a used tractor made back in 1915 - one of only seven Wallis Cub tractors left in the world.
His pride and joy, a one-of-a-kind custom-modified Model T that he named "John Henry," in honor of John Deere and Henry Ford. Ultimately, Junck enjoys the meticulous work that is required of his craft: "It's just a challenge you know," says Junck. "It's just something to take care of the time you know."
