Anyone seen this new International rig?

http://www.internationaltrucks.com/lonestar/MATS/ ....this truck is cool looking I think. kinda old school/new school at the same time. Nick, are you gonna go check out this truck show in your town this month? You can be 5th Gen.org's field reporter!

Bob Lutz: "There's no doubt that a design-driven philosophy is the only one that will work. People who are not sensitive to design, people who don't care about vehicles, people who view a vehicle as an appliance, they just default to Toyota. We will never win that one."

Didn't even know we were having a truck show.

But probably not..3rd shift sleep schedule sucks.


And that thing has way too much chrome.
There was another newer truck that I saw a while back..and fell in love with as far as Semis go..but I can't remember who made it.

Oh yeah, the Cascadia:

Retro semi's what's next retro bikes?

Not too bad though. I agree too much chrome that is going to blind oncomming traffic.

i think the chrome is mostly for the show, its to grab your attention. thats the whole purpose to the over done look of show cars to draw you in. imo the grill is to much and detracts from the look, makes it look like a bug of some kind

Check that truck's website...it's an actual vehicle. Not only a show truck.
