The cabover truck design is long past it's 'hey day'. However, this style of big rig truck is rising to the surface once again.

These rigs were once quite commonly seen rolling down the highways, but now a sighting of a cabover truck on the road, is rare.

They had their perks, but due to safety issues and semi truck length laws, they became less popular, and thus production of these rigs, halted.

In more recent years, however, this truck style has made a resurgence in popularity, particularly at truck shows.

Enough said. Here's a YOUTUBE VIDEO featuring cabover Kenworth truck pictures, FreightlinersPeterbilts, Diamond Reo, Mack, Ford and GMC....

We sure do love 'old school'.
