For a handful of years, Pappy's Barbecue owner Rick Bell has been a collector of antique tractors.

"My sons got into tractors," Rick said Sunday during the first Pappy's Barbecue Antique Lawn and Garden Tractor show. "I got into collecting them."

Several residents stopped by the restaurant, located at 111 E. National Ave., Brazil, to check out the approximately 15 antique tractors on display.

Free ham and beans, along with hot dogs, were available at the event. In addition, members of Relay For Life were on hand selling desserts, with all proceeds going to Relay For Life of Clay County.

Bell said some of the tractor owners got on board and drove their vehicles along the curb in front of the restaurant.

"It's fun," Rick said. "We're hoping to turn this into an annual event."

Bell added he hoped to start up a local club for those with interest in tractors.
