Tractor tour organizers never miss a chance to add to their John Deere collection

According to NiagaraThisWeek.com, organizers of the Golden Horseshoe Antique Tractor Tour feel so passionate about their farming equipment that they gather before the annual event to show each other their new additions and swap stories. This tour features 20 various collectors in at least nine different locations on the weekend of June 4th this year.
One of these collectors, Joe Carlton, is particularly proud of his new addition - the 1953 John Deere 40. After spending his childhood watching his grandfather work on this model, he had an itching desire to find another one at some point in his life. Joe claims to have so many tractors in his collection that the barn could easily be mistaken for a John Deere museum.
