    Come on Paccar, i know you are trying to get into the fleet market but you have to maintain your image and this isnt the way. I have to agree, its like frankentruck, cross between a 80′s Volvo and a Freightliner

    (feeling sorry for you ) you are right, i cant deny that. i do love my old trucks and old days. Just seemed to be a lot of fun back then. Pete is right they are moving forward with the times for saving fuel and focus on the fleet.
