    I would guess 12-71 Detroit that's the only v-12 I've ever seen in a truck , except one custom Pete with a 12 cylinder cat , it was from a tug boat and it used to be at sap bros in SLC on display , that was impressive

    It appears and if memory serves me right it's a v8 cat. The truck was built by Wilkins truck supply in Tonkawa OK that's their shop behind it
    I have loved the Bighorn ever since I first seen a picture of one maybe someday I'll have one. I've already got one of my dream trucks still got to finish making it how I want it though. IMG_0194.JPG

    So which is better, Euro Volvo or American/Australian Kenworth? I know which one I would have and I've driven both. Fancy sleeping in a tiny sleeper surrounded by plastic? Volvo. You want reliability, power, and a heavy build, not to mention a reasonable sleeper? Kenworth. IMG_3021.JPG IMG_4430.JPG

    Not mine, but I wish I owned a few of these, or all of them in fact!
