Swishy mate
Yes it is a Titan with a Mack badge made by Volvo, it is without doubt, not only is a nice looking Truck, also a good Truck, why is it both, it was made by VOLVO.
Anyway you and the Boys have done a great job, it will serve you well, Trucks built with loving care and attention by Volvo just keep on doing the job.

Swishy mate
Firstly none of the above, just an old bloke trying to make quid in the Transport industry.
Secondly Paccar simply don't have the kind of money to buy Volvo.
Paccar did not really buy DAF, DAF were broke and there for the taking, if it was a leg up into the European market, have not seen any real evidence driving around Europe.
Swishy you have joined the strength driving a Volvo with a snout on it, next will be a cabover with an I shift, you will even get a handbag but only if you ask nicely.
OK Wot say you ?

Yep, and the gearbox issues have been fixed on this one!

I'd rather have tools that I don't need, than not have the tools I do need.
