Chevrolet Titan 90 daycab.  2 things inspired this truck. Phil Jensen's articles and chapter in Building Model Trucks, and the trucks I saw in Munising, Michigan delivering supplies to True Value Hardware.  Cotter & Company (?) ran leased trucks from Ryder, sometimes yellow, sometimes red trucks were seen.          The Ryder logos are from Spaulding Trading and Shipping. Late '99 or early '00 build

Chevrolet Titan/90 Michigan Special

1974 Chevrolet Titan 90.  A fairly box stock truck, except for the resin Detroit Diesel 12v71, and the twin breathers.  Wide front tires, and painted rear 2 holes.  The engine is from Spauldings.  Sinclair Oil Co logos are model railroad decals from Microscale.  This tractor has a matching 5 axle plated tanker. 2003 build.

GMC Astro95

Next on the "get these old rebuilders finished" list is this GMC Astro95 COE.  I bought this long before the reissue was announced.  I painted it in the fall on '02.  I saw a house moving company with an old International COE and thought the GMC would be a fitting work-truck.  I used a GMC General grille to update the front, etched metal slam-lock door handles from Kit Form Services to further update the cab.
