Prom-goer in Arkansas ditched the limo in favour of the tractor

A teenager from Arkansas in the US decided he wanted to ride to his school prom in a totally unique vehicle. While most youngsters plump for a flashy hummer limo, party bus, or stretch limousine driven by a suited chauffeur for their big night, the young farmer from Arkansas had a better idea.

Michael Smith Jr, a farmer’s son who’s been brought up with farm machinery and animals, decide to opt for a vehicle slightly more familiar for his prom. The youngster got dressed up in all his finery, and jumped aboard one of his family’s tractor and set off for the school prom.

Destiny Metcalf was Michael’s date for the prom and didn’t seem to mind that her limo had been swapped for a tractor. However Destiny did require a big of help to get onboard the tractor in her prom dress, but once inside, she was happy to ride alongside Michael in his favourite vehicle.

Speaking about his decision to ride to the prom onboard a tractor Michael said: “Nobody’s ever come to the prom in a tractor” adding, “it seemed like the right thing to do.”

Maybe Michael will have started a trend in Arkansas for tractor rides to the school prom?
