I met a very impressive  young man on Sunday at Island Grove Park. 16-year-old Colton Moore restores and collects antique tractors. The Eaton High School junior is a member of the Longs Peak Antique Tractor & Engine Association, which had a number of old tractors at the 100th Annual Weld County Fair. Colton wasn't allowed to join the club until he could drive to the meetings himself.

Colton is an accomplished welder and has restored and owns two Farmall tractors and is currently working on his third. He is part of the welding program at Aims Community College and plans to get an Associates Degree from Aims around the same time he graduates from high school.

I chance to talk to Colton on Sunday about his very unique hobby. Our brief interview is in this YouTube video:
