A small cab warms up faster in the winter and cools off faster in the summer, it also makes it easy to reach your cooler in the passenger seat.
Class...you either have it, or you don't.

If you ever run TEAM with a big person ( Im 6'2 235 lbs and have a long reach ) you will wish they were a BIT bigger and besides you have no need to be rooting though a cooler going down the highway.

Western Star has a bit more space between the seats which makes things a bit more comfortable.

My favorite has to be an ex-hood, flat top walk-in with window in back 359, long and awesome.  It looks like a truck and it's what the 379's wish they were   :-P

This was my 85 K100E

I bought it in 1986 with 66,000 miles on it, the guy who owned it got hurt and was going to lose it. It was in the United Van lines fleet, I always said I would repaint it but never did.

Was a great truck for the 5 years I ran it.

fully loaded 2007 volvo 780, white in color with a red frame 18sp. 600hp, black leather, tinted windows and all the chrome that is availible...8" dual stacks,headache rack, and fiberglass rear full fender's in white.... and a brand new great dane 53' thermoking tridem reefer trlr....
all the options....
that's what i'd buy if i was gonna get a new truck.... probably run me over $250,000.00+cdn.
but they are the nicest,stylish, classy,reliable, best built truck on the road today.... i think....
 :-o

i found one, it may not be a 2007 or white with a red frame, but it does have most of the chrome options...
for a new truck i love these ones the best...
the trailer isn't correct either, but i'm sure you get the picture....
 :mrgreen:

Volvo 660 for me.  Spent a couple of years in one;  loved it.  Great visibility,  smooth ride,  and an asthetically pleasing interior (for me anyway).
