I wonder if another big hurdle to getting older trucks would be finding them in pristine condition with original factory equipment for them to collect data/sounds from.
I thought the same thing but honestly, I think the best route is going to truck shows. In the US or Europe. There are enough cabover lovers that we can easily get Kenworth, Freightliner, International and Peterbilt for sure. When I was at GATS last August, I seen several COE. I am sure the owners of those trucks would love to give one on one time to SCS. Perhaps SCS could even provide their paint scheme in the game to honor the owner. Truck owners would be very willing to have their personal truck in the game as long as the manufacturer provides the license. That owner would be the best source to get one on one sound recordings on too.

For conventional trucks, SCS really has to pick their poison. They'd have to go after a truck in which they can get references for. Whether that is sound, pics or scanning purposes. Good luck on CAD files though. But overfloater's truck is very high quality and I don't see anyone complaining much if we got that type of quality for an out of production truck. He didn't have CAD files so it can be done effectively.

A few classics from GATS last year

Not a fan of classic trucks. But I would love to see the trucks after 2000 such as Volvo VN770, Freightliner Century, Argosy, Classic XL, Kenworth T600, T2000. Or a bit more newer , the trucks can be seen on the roads and used truck market such as Kenworth T700, T660, Peterbilt 386, 587, Freightliner 132SD, Volvo VT880 etc.

And they should make truck stats realisticly. A Mack R shouldn't be good as much as Mack Anthem.

Altought would be a lot of fun to drive something like a 1962 Peterbilt 351, I also rather settle for late 90's/2000's trucks when it comes to discontinued models.

If we don't ever get classic trucks officially, they should be implemented as traffic models, atleast as non-licenced fictional brands rigs (like pacific, kinetic, metalhorse, etc.)

^100 agreed. I have used JazzyCat's mod for AI truck variety and its awesome in terms of truck variety. The problem is, its a mod but he does keep it updated. To have SCS do something like that would be just as good but SCS manages it. For me, truck variety is all about seeing it in traffic. I don't have to drive every truck nor do I want to. Heck I am still in my W900 until the truck(s) I want is in the game. No rush for me. If SCS went just the AI traffic route, I can accept that. They won't have to get as detailed which means AI licensed trucks could be model even quicker. We pretty much already have a Mack vocational truck in the game. Perhaps if the truck is not provided as a driven truck, different licensing terms can occur.

@Oscar is possible to SCS to obtain licenses for AI traffic only? If you can't answer that I understand, no worries. Otherwise I assume it licenses only for trucks planned to be accessed by a human player as well as AI.

I don't think it's a particularly great idea to focus on "classic trucks" until they've already released everything relevant (and legally feasible) that's still in production. This is doubly true if there's an extra cost for them, because you don't want to give people the impression you're prioritizing paid trucks at the expense of free ones. We're still likely many years off from this point, especially considering that I don't believe even ETS2 ever properly reached it.

Even then I'd still rather see models that only recently left production, like the Old Cascadia and the 9900i, before true "classics".
