Just curious. Why or what does the "Post 1990 New Holland" relate to in this forum?

My Ford LGT 100 is a first for me. I do often pass a New Holland dealer and wonder?
The blue New Hollands look great. Their blue matches my Ford LGT (?). :tango_face_glasses:

I think after 1990, they didn't call them Fords anymore, called them New Holland....I may be wrong. I think this only applies to the gardentractors.

Found this....
Does Ford make New Holland tractors?
The original New Holland Machine Company was founded in 1895 in New Holland, Pennsylvania; it was acquired by Sperry Corporation in the 1970s, then by Ford Motor Company in 1986, and then by FiatAgri in 1991, becoming a full line producer.

I know that the early LGTs like yours and mine were built by Jacobsen and sold with the Ford name until the 80s when Gilson started making them.

I kind of wonder if the post 1990s garden tractors even apply here. Maybe the Ford garden tractor section should be combined with Jacobsen?.......It's confusing.
