been driving Volvo FH16 750 from ETS2 launch, most powerful and fastest truck in the game :D even bullbar and light addons look very similar to what i have on mine :emoji28: only difference is that mine is the older version. not a fan of the new one because of the dash layout cause i don't use auto, only manual shifting and the new dash tac is way too small for my liking. also the gear ratio in the 12+2 gearbox is a bit short for my liking.

I like the 2 gauge style volvos used to have but the new one is way too nice imo. Looks beautiful inside and out

Walking down the street a moment ago, avoiding some construction site. Went by a concrete pump, I turn around and all of a sudden... A wild bulldog appears! Image

First time I see a Mack in person! Looks really American, sort of like those old fire engines. And check out the mirror ornaments! Image
This company also has a Sterling crane truck. I took some pictures of it a while ago if any of you remember.

Awesome spot, it's a Mack MR aka Cruise Hauler! Used for garbage, fire and construction usage. Never seen one in real life. Butt ugly though...

Original Mack mirrors, and even the Bulldog ornament on the front. Some older Mack COE had this too!

Some things have changed since bus plans, and plans might still change

I spent the day with the guy driving this, super enjoyable, we moved a excavator, a couple of small cranes, 40 tonnes of scrap metal (its a hook truck) The thing got extra sound isolation and front air suspension, best thing ever

Image

Yesterday with a guy picking up general business waste so mainly front tipping big metal containers , hell even enjoyed that

Nice a V8! Air suspension is so comfortable. Good to hear you are enjoying yourself. So you are going to be a truck driver now? :emoji6: I still love operating big rigs after all these years!
Off Topic
It's noisy and uncomfortable, but for me it's the best truck in world:



Toughest trucks on the planet, these things last forever. I would choose this over anything modern.
