William Munyon of Momence collects tractors. To date, he has more than 100 of them with models dating back to 1919. His favorite, though, is the John Deere two-cylinder G model, of which he has six.

William Munyon of Momence collects tractors. To date, he has more than 100 of them with models dating back to 1919. His favorite, though, is the John Deere two-cylinder G model, of which he has six.

“That model was the finest tractor I ever ran,” says the retired grain and beef cattle farmer.

In 1994, he found yet another of his beloved G-John Deeres, but it needed major engine work. He instead decided to give the tractor a fresh coat of paint and, with the help of a crane, placed it atop his silo, where it’s stood since.

“I just thought the silo seemed a good place to store the tractor,” Munyon says. “It’s a good conversation piece.”

    The tractor is missing! Will it return to the silo? It is our major reason for going through Momence IL.
