I hope it doesn't catch on, then. It'd probably look pretty sharp without that extra piece of beard on the chin there...

So much for double clutching and gear shifting. I guess that will make it easier for driver trainers. I wonder whole will figure out a cowcatcher for these puppies  ::) ;) ;D

Well, Freightliner have used Mercedes steering wheels ever since they were bought by Mercedes, to be fair. IIRC even the FLD had a Mercedes steering wheel... at least the latest ones.

Standard steering wheel in many an FLD was the 2-spoke Mercedes wheel.

I looked high and low to find an older, NOS 3-spoke "glitter" wheel for mine when I had it.

The Columbia I had had a larger, almost 22-inch Mercedes steering wheel.
