Although cars and trucks dominate the Beldenville Old Car Club Show July 25, antique and collector tractors are invited, too.

Among tractor collectors in this area, Randy Bredahl of River Falls prefers Internationals. Of the 40 tractors he presently has in his collection, over three-quarters carry the IH brand.
