My personal all time favorite's is the Peterbilt 559, 579, 379, and 389. When I say the 559 and 579 I am talking about the older models. Then I like the Kenworth W900's. My favorite engines is C15, C16 of the Cats. I really like the ISX Cummings. Thats my favorites.

Victor, haven't ignored this...I will answer when I can actually sit down at my laptop and post some photos to accompany my answers...

Keep in mind I am a truck nut...your question is near and dear to my heart. But it's like asking a kid what their favorite sugary snack is...

Okay Victor, here is the one I like the most...

Gray SAPA tractor trailer covered wagon

Well, it is the one that I drive every day. I sleep in it. I take my meals in it. I cruise the country side in it. I have intimate phone conversations with my family in it. I read books in it. It takes me to all kinds of wonderful places. I've seen sunrises that rival anything I've seen in any movie, and sunsets that even John Wayne would be jealous to have ridden off into. All of this and more in my favorite truck.

This week I am home taking a little break, but before the week is over I will probably be wanting to get back in her and be off on another new adventure.

Covered Wagon:

A flatbed with specially fitted side plates and curved ribs supporting a tarp covering, commonly referred to as a "side kit". Named for the resemblance to horse-drawn covered wagons.

SAP:

Substance Abuse Professional

The Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) is a person who evaluates employees who have violated a DOT drug and alcohol program regulation and makes recommendations concerning education, treatment, follow-up testing, and aftercare.

That is a gorgeous truck Old School!! I am even a little jealous. I like that Volvo looks like one of the best!! Is it pretty comfortable?

I've driven several Cascadia and two Petes. As a newer driver...trying to back in the Pete was much harder cause of the longer snout. However, the shifting seems you Asher for a newbie because it is more block like, so more intentional to get into gear.

Of the Cascadia... Each clutch, steering and shifter was completely different. But as to which is my favorite???? Mine lol

2015 cascadia in a pretty teal color

Yeah I understand what you are saying about the Pete because a acquaintance friend of mine let me drive his 600 horse power C-16 Peterbilt 559 in the show lot up where I live and it wasn't exactly the easiest to turn. LOVED IT THOUGH. I am going to have to google that truck but I am sure I would like it too. I drove out on the road with a International Prostar with a twin turbo ISX Cummins if I am remembering correctly. COOL STUFF LET ME TELL YOU!! shocked.pngsmile.gif
