    But the Western Star is not the truck it once was . It has been bought by Daimler and all production moved to Mexico . Worst thing in the industry since Volvo bought Autocar .

    That's a whole lotta truck for such a small payload cap. I wonder how hard it is to make money with. It looks good though and I'll bet it's fun to drive!
