Thought these photos might bring a smile to Willys face. :-) Ex International Transport FL COE belonging to M. Sedlacek Trucking of Cadott WI had just pulled into the Edgerton WI BP as i was leaving so a quick u-turn later captured a trip back in time.

My gosh, he even still has the IT on the front!  You must have felt like you stepped back in time, Charlie.

I half expected a C&H Pete to pull up alongside Paul - that would have been the topper.  :lol:

If I remember correctly, and roughly, Schneider bought them about '83 and the International Transport name disappeared in the late '80's, becoming Schneider Specialized.

Which is now Maverick.  Amazing what happens in a time span of about 20 years...
The foot turned to the horse, the horse to the carriage, the carriage to the train, and the train to the truck.

Thanks Charlie, very cool.

Best trucking company I ever worked for, still get that tingly feeling every time I see a pic of one of their trucks. :-D

Hello Charley,

WOW!!! That is a real nice classic Freightliner COE!!!!! A simple but very quarectistic colorscheme for those FL's!!!
And again, a very nice idea for one of my "few" modells!!! (Ask Norseman, he knows I am a real "modelltruck NUT"!!!!!)
(have build and collected the "small" collection of about 10.000 modells in various scales (could be even more, I did stop counting), for more than 40 years)
Looking forward to see more!!!
Greetings,

Leo
Deceased.

Isn't there a FL COE in IT colors somebody posted recently (2012) that looks like maybe this one with a little TLC?
