But, when it comes to the final paint job, choosing the colors is a pretty easy decision, given the company's iconic green-and-gold color scheme. However, one Ohio teen took a different route, according to a recent report in the Morning Journal.
The Ohio newspaper said that Samantha Grills opted to go with a bright pink finish on her 1946 John Deere B. The machine was a gift from her father, who was diagnosed with brain cancer and passed away in February.
Grills' three older brothers each restored a tractor with the help of their father, Scott. However, his gift to Samantha came with the knowledge that he wouldn't be able to help her restore the John Deere.
"It was a family thing, my brothers were doing it and I just wanted to be part of it," Samantha told the paper.
The tractor is being featured in the Lorain County Fair, which started on Monday, August 23, and features a variety of farming events.
