Lloyd Mickalyk talks about his love for Vintage Tractors, why he competes in the Calgary Stampede and why his 1960 John Deere 530 is special to him.
Spencer Jensen's family knows all about Vintage Tractors. They've been pulling at the Calgary Stampede for years. However, this is the first time Spencer has pulled here, but you wouldn't know it given how calm and cool he is when it comes time to hitch up and pull the sled.

The Roaring 50's will be celebrated during this year's Calgary Stampede Vintage Tractor Show and Shine and Pull. The Show and Shine and Tractor Pull take place July 6 & 7.
