What is the best looking truck, ever? Everyone has different tastes so show us what you like. My pick is a W900 Kenworth from the 80's. Credit to the owner of this magnificent beast and the photo taker.
I'd rather have tools that I don't need, than not have the tools I do need.

Hello Grandad and Lang
The best bit is I can go up to the old girl's garage and start her up and go for a drive around the depot. The DiamondT 980 was an extremely advanced particularly with the Brakes, the contour of the "S" cam on the drive axle Brakes is exactly the same as current Semi Trailer 7" drum brakes today. 75 Years later and nothing has changed. Then the poppet valve piston engine has been around for a lot longer and we don't seem to be going now where with it other than Electric and that is exactly where it will end up we will drive Electric vehicles just like Grandma Duck in Disney's comic books .
