    Classic 18-Wheelers

    What, for you, is the ultimate "classic" truck? Is it an old Peterbuilt, Mac, what? Also, appearance wise, where have trucks gone wrong (if at all)? What is the ugliest "modern" truck on the road?

    Freightliner Columbia is the ugliest IMO

    I have to agree, the whole small grill and rounded features thing is a bit of a turnoff. Looks like it is trying to be an F150.

    Anything with a square hood and round headlights. R-model Macks, Int'l Paystars, Petes, Fords, whatever.

    Also, appearance wise, where have trucks gone wrong (if at all)?
    Caving to the demands of the environmental wackos.

    They're ALL hideous anymore. The worst offenders I think are the newest model Freightliner, or the 387 Pete.

    I don't think that Kenworth got it too bad when they designed the T660. I like it. It rides nice and it drives nice, but it is no pete 379 or kenworth w900.

    Volvo! But then you did say truck, so that doesn't apply.

    Do they have to be 18 wheelers ? I like the old 10 wheel dumps and wreckers - Autocar (killed by Volvo ) , Brockway , and B Model Macks . But the best classics - the Monfort KW's .

    They were selling a lot of Brockway dumps at the Ford Dealer in Little Rock in the mid-70's . I knew a guy that had a few contracted to McGeorge hauling gravel for I-430 construction . (Yeah , I'm THAT old ! )
