  1. Shouldn't we be celebrating 186 years?

    Totally agree. The 150'th anniversary in 1981 is the reason I fell in love with the USA. On the celebration with the Belgium dealers my father got the '81 Buyers Guide. I was 2 years old than but for years and years I've looked trough it dreaming about those big tractors and huge fields.

    JD hat? I normally wear a New Holland hat, as we have a NH dealership. I 'don't know if we visit the ERTL museum. It's an organised trip so I have to follow the leader.
  14. Trip to the USA

    I've just booked a trip with a travel agency specialised in Agricultural trips. Is a group of 10 men. We drive trough Wisconsin, Illinois and Iowa. Visiting CNH, Cat, Kinze and John Deere (a plough manufacturer, I was told). It's from 26 oct till 7 nov. What weather can we expect? We also visit a toy show in Dyersville. Any thoughts?
  15. CaseIH 85 - 95 Series Tractors.

    In Europe the color scheme changed on the 85-series, not on the 84-series. First 85-series were red / white. Belgium sold the German IH's and not the British one. But we live ont the border with Holland, and they sold the British 85-series. But not the 84-series. After 1986 Belgium also offered the British built 85-series as cheaper alternative to the expensive German tractors.
