Fourth yay on the Volvo.
Dad used to own a few OTR trucks. Loved his Volvo VN770, although he always had great things to say about his KW T2000, said the suspension was one of the best he had experienced.
As was said above, these trucks are designed for maximum fuel efficiency, prettiness isn't a priority.
I also vote the Coronado... Beautiful truck!

And the shape has terrible aerodynamics.
A shorter less cool looking rig would be much easier to drive and cheaper to run. The cost of being cool.
Staying on topic, I too enjoy those old Macks. Basically, a cover for the engine and a cover for the driver simply and elegantly drawn. For modern trucks, I think the Volvos come closest to emulating that design intent.

I am assuming the rigs down in AUS are either built down there, or converted to RHD? Or do some managed to just get brought down from here while sticking with LHD?
I love a lot of the current rigs, but the new international is Hideous. The grille is far to large for my liking.
I'm a fan of the Volvo trucks, as well as mostly all of the late model Freightliners. I have a soft spot for the newer FL70.
