I used to fix Pete's, I agree with Stardriver, keep making Ex hood trucks!

Nothing better than a Peterbilt and a CAT!

Peterbilt and Kenworth. Paccar also has their own engine line they run in the trucks.

I didn't know that Paccar had their own line of engines. How long have they been doing that?

Not sure exactly, I worked for Peterbilt 2 years ago and they were just starting to come out with them. Not sure how main stream they are yet, but since CAT left the on highway business back in 09 Paccar needed another engine other than Cummins to give operators a choice. However CAT now has their own truck so they might get back into the truck engine business. Hopefully. Dont know much about Paccar engines, never had the opportunity to work on them.
