Owners show off equipment at Antique Engine and Tractor Show

BUCKHANNON, W. Va. (WDTV) -- People from all over the state come to bring machines to the Antique Engine and Tractor Show.

5 News spoke to one man who breathed new life into his bosses 1940 Ford 9N tractor. After sitting for 16 years, Jason Dean tore it apart, and hand painted it with an old school Hot Rod look for the show. He said this event is important for history.

"It shows a lot of heritage, especially for this area. I mean, this is our history, these old tractors. And if we don't keep them alive, then who will," said Dean.

The event goes on all day Saturday. You can check it out between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. in the lot behind the Stockert Youth Center.
