High School Senior Picks Up Prom Date In John Deere Tractor

    Forget taking a limousine to the prom. One high school senior drove his date in a 1992 green John Deere 8760 tractor.

    "A few people made bets with me that I wouldn't do it," said Levi Rue, a senior at New Rockford-Sheyenne High School. "I guess I won them."Advertisement

    Rue suggested the idea to his date, Alissa Bachmeier, last Thursday, two days before the prom. She wasn't sure, worried about her dress getting dirty.

    But after Rue showed her pictures of the tractor and promised to make sure it was immaculate, Bachmeier agreed. "I cleaned it up pretty good," he said.

    Bachmeier wore a lime green prom dress that nearly matched the tractor.

    Rue said they drove around town and to his grandmother's house to show her the unusual chariot.

    "We got quite a few people who stopped and looked and stared and waved," he said.

    A few years ago a kid picked up his prom date in a Cat #12 grader. 50s model that he and his dad restored. It looked sharp!

    I joked about picking up my date with a 4020 John Deere.

    Back a few years ago quite a few guys drove their tractors to the last day of classes. Took up quite a bit more room in the parking lot than normal.

    that's cool, those pictures that i'm sure their families took, will make great memories when they look back on it all.
