The reds and the greens will combine at annual tractor event
In the world of vintage tractor collectors, you're either faithful to the red, or your fidelity bleeds green.
Red is the signature color of the International Harvester tractor, green the unmistakable calling card of the John Deere tractor.
"Us tractor guys, we have a kind of thing – like Ford and Chevy people have," said tractor enthusiast Bill Son, 74. "Me? I'm a Farmall guy."
Son was referring to the fire-engine-red Farmall models made by International Harvester. The Farmall became the company's biggest seller between 1924 and 1963.
