    Well I am 27 and been driving big trucks for 7 years. I have a t600 that I have lowered the front end with a 20"bumper trying to like my truck. But I would trade it for flat top w900 with a 6nz any day of the week. I've owned exhd petes before. I got my t600 because if mpg's. But man I miss that hood!!!!! I love them both 379's and w9's but I've had the exhd 379 and my next truck is gonna be a flat top w9 !!!!! I don't care about mpg's !!!! Lmao.

    Look at this beautiful 2000 Kenworth w900L .

    You might think they are ugly (pete 379/389) but nothing pulls or rides like an O/O spec pete. They are trly the cadillac of the big trucks..once you ride in one for a week you won't ever want to ride in anything else

    As a former owner of a a Pete 379 Legacy I will ell you that after I sold it...I missed it..still miss it and kick myself for ever selling it

    You will grow to like them hoods if you drive long enough. I didn't like them when I first start driving but been out here and I see how they run, I cant wait to get one. I'm ready to get rid of this columbia and get a hood

    I cant belive this is 12 pages long. I think long nosed Pete's are the nicest looking trucks on the road, but thats just my opinion. As for how they drive, long nosed Pete's are by far the nicest riding trucks I've driven. But I've never driven a Volvo or a Mack. I do deliver brand new Pete's and KW's so I have driven just about every model of those. When it comes down to it, it's all personal opinion. But hey since you seem to have a headlight fetish the long nose Pete is one of the only trucks I know of that you can easily change out, or cusomize the headlights on. :biggrin_25525:

    Why of course the nicest looking truck award HAS to be the one and only
    MACK SUPERLINER "too bad they are not around in the U.S. anymore"

    Cab Overs have and had a place. If you run in the North East corredor in and out of inner city markets etc. Getting around / in / out / around / etc. with that long hood and 1 acre turning radius does and did not work so well. :biggrin_25513:

    last but not least, the "prettiest" truck on the road is the one I'm currently driving that is making me money whatever brand or make it is.

    Those Scots look kinda like a cross between a Ford LT9000, a Marmon, and a Mack.
