Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (PRWEB) July 09, 2014
The Man – C. Ivan Stoltzfus is an auctioneer and real estate broker, as well as a retired farmer. He divides his time between Honey Brook, PA and Sarasota, FL. Ivan grew up farming with John Deere tractors and loved the sound of the 2 cylinder engine. He dreamed of a cross country adventure on an old John Deere tractor to see the United States of America and to raise funds for a special mission.
The Machine – A 1948 John Deere Model A will serve as the great machine for the long journey. With the help of a tractor club, Waterloo Boys of Southeastern Pennsylvania, the tractor was restored and then retrofitted with a 1984 Peterbilt model 359 cab. This tractor certainly has a unique look! It will be towing a 24′ camper donated by Stoltzfus RV of West Chester, PA.
The Mission – The goal of the endeavor is to bring recognition and support for the many heroes of the USA – hurting men and women who sacrificed of themselves for our nation’s freedom.
