Antique tractor tales

Slideshow: Here’s a look at a few of the antique tractors that crossed the Mighty Mac and their stories.

At Little Bear Arena in St. Ignace, there were a lot of tires to kick if you so desired after the Mackinac Bridge Antique Tractor crossing Sept. 8. There was also a lot of color — green, red, blue, yellow and even pink. Rust is also regarded as a color.

These old workhorses have history. Sometimes there’s a long lineage, sometimes not. Nevertheless, there’s a sense of pride in owning and riding tractors that tilled the ground and supported an industry that provided for America’s sustenance.
