This topic actually made me join this forum. I got the link on another farming-forum where i asked for some IH history. This was some really interesting stuff. That you all for that. But i still kind of miss something from about 1980 to 1985 and some actual dates like when Tenneco took over and such. I was told it was on November 26, 1984 that IH agreed to sell. And it was on May 24 or 26, 1985 that Tenneco finally took over. Doe it have some truth to it or was i informed wrong? I know i could just get a copy of "A Corporate Tragedy" but not having English as my first language it can be hard to read a whole book.
