Euro Trucks


What about D.A.F. or M.A.N. trucks? Do they still make them anymore?

I remember seeing those in Germany back during the 1980s when I was over there.


P.S. COE (cab over engine) trucks are almost extinct here in the USA. Most companies have gone to conventional style tractors because of driver comfort and the lifting of some length restrictions. The last COE tractor I know of that is still available is probably the Freightliner Argosy.

Sure ain't no peterbilt. I do agree that cabovers are cool, but i like the older classic cabovers. So a 700hp volvo is probably equal to a 600hp CAT. LOL. GO CAT!

yeah i think freightshaker was the last to make a COE. The argosy was a cool looking truck. It had the swing out steps to climb into the cab. I think they quit making the argosy though. Now they just have ugly conventionals.
