VON ORMY (September 21, 2013)--The Verstraeten family in Von Ormy hands down tractors to the children, and a rusted 1953 Allis Chalmers Model G tractor was Brett and Corey Verstraeten's inheritance from their grandfather.
But they weren’t about to turn the discarded tractor, no longer practical for plowing, into a lawn ornament, so they’ve restored it to its blaze-orange, showroom shine.
Now, they're finalists in the 2013 Tractor Restoration Competition in Louisville, Ky.
The brothers will be one of 12 teams, eight of them from Texas, judged at the Future Farmers of American Convention starting Oct. 30.
