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.
Watch me fix my Rabbit!.......slowly.
