    IMG_0113.PNG I don't take many pictures and this one isn't very good.
    It was a crappy weather day in mich , so my truck and trailer isn't looking it's best , but it's the only pic I have on this phone,
    I've changed the stacks to some 7" dynaflex since then

    Gentlemen, if you want to show off your old iron, or any old iron, that's great.

    However, we are not going to have a thread dedicated to bashing any one particular member. I'll lock this one in a New York minute if it comes to that.

    If I HAD to drive a Euro machine for whatever reason, I don't think I'd mind too much if it were this one.

    Mack, I invited people to share a picture of their ride if they are proud of it. I'd love to see pictures of their nice rigs.
     
    Oxbow Thanks this.

    This is the one time I have to say, if I had to choose a Euro rig, I think I'd rather have the COE. That snout is just to repulsive in my book.

    As far as the earlier picture of the Mercedes car hauler, that's obviously a much older model, as far as I can tell.

    Here's my favorite Polish driver giving a tour of the Actros. Actually not too bad inside one of them, although I would still choose an American conventional:

    Love the color , but like the other driver said , that snout is something else , it would have to have that 730hp v8 to overlook DAS SNOUT

    My cascadia is always clean and shiney but it's still a tool.

    You're right. Some drivers need the corner office in order to come to work, others only want a good paycheck over all the perks.

    Neither is wrong, but having that nice office is more important to me than just the check.
     
    Oxbow, W9onTime and bzinger Thank this.

    What I find interesting is it still has the steps for the cabover. It's different than ours, but shiny aluminum wheels makes trucks look good.
     
    MACK E-6 and Oxbow Thank this.
