Not to get off topic but I am surprised we Kenworth didn't let SCS use the T800 or T660 as it was still in production in 16. Would of rather have one of those over the W900.

Ohhh no. The W900 is iconic though. You can't remove that. There is no other truck in Kenworth's line up like the W900. Its the only squared up truck they have. Its like the Freightliner Classic. Another truck that would be nice if Freightliner allowed it. Freightliner seems to be the one brand that does allow it in game the most. We could easily get a huge roster of Freightliners. My roster would be:
  • New Cascadia
  • Old Cascadia
  • 122SD
  • 132SD
  • ClassicXL
  • Columbia
  • Century
  • FLB
  • FLC
Yes there are more Freightliners but this is my roster so I am not naming them all. I wouldn't drive them all but I'd love to see them in traffic. In real life I see all the expect the last two. If I have crossed one it might be once every few years.

You forgot the FLD. I see the 122SD over the 132SD. Don't think the 132SD sold as well. Only difference between the 122 and 132 is 10 inches in BBC (Bumper to Back of Cab). Hence reason for 2 variatioms if the FLD being 112 and 120. 112 was popular with regional fleets that did bulk commodities as they ran 11 or 13 liters and had improved visibility over the 120 as the hood had a slight slope to it. Same thing with the Classic and Classic XL. The XL has the 132 BBC and the Classic has the 122 BBC. All Ontario Classics were the 122 due to Ontario's length law. 250 is the max wheelbase you can run. Makes the W900L look odd but cool at the same time with the short wheelbase.

@Robinicus and @Trucker_71 can be more specific about it than what I can.

I didn’t forget the FLD. That’s why I mentioned I know there are more but its my list as in what I’d pick personally. I have no desire for the FLD.

A couple of models that would be cool to see if they were in the NA market back in the day were between the partnership of White/Freightliner (Consolidated Freightways era) from the early 70's like the Road Commander and possibly Road Boss though i'm not sure if the Road boss was made before the split.

I'm waiting for them to add this one...probably as likely a chance of that happening as most on the list unfortunately

This was my '56 Freightliner, a bit newer than the one in your pic, but nearly the same except for the nose. Mine was originally a Canadian Freightways version which I had to make a lot of changes to :lol:
I was leased to Porter Trucking back in the late 70's and used it locally around Vancouver BC.
