Vintage Tractors owned by the Genesee Valley Tractor Collectors Club

In 1990 a small group of tractor lovers came together to form the Genesee Valley Tractor Collectors Club. The purpose of the club is to promote the interest of the public in the preservation and the restoration of antique tractors, particularly the John Deere two-cylinder models, their accessories, lore and literature. Today over 100 members of the club continue their love of tractors and participate in shows, parades, drives and pulls around Michigan and beyond.
