For today’s Labor Day edition of Micro Monday, I have a couple of hard working big rigs.

The building supply truck has been rode hard and put up wet. The tractor has had to be put out to pasture, replaced by a military surplus tractor. I love these old cab-overs, it’s a shame you hardly ever see a 1:1 on the road anymore.

The big rig Micros have opening doors, and the cab-overs flip forward to reveal their engines just like the real thing. All the moving and small parts meant a lot of these did not survive childhood intact.

The chromed out milk tanker survived much better. I keep it displayed with my Indy Car collection (I hope it’s obvious why).
