    Aren't or weren't Western Stars basically mutts made from parts from various manufacturers? And I don't mean Meritor for air and Cummins for motors. I mean steering wheels from one company and dashes from another to the point of being obvious?

    Maybe. I dunno.

    But they reminded me of the International Scout in that they looked a little Dodge, a little Ford, etc.

    Western Star started as White in BC. And they're built in Portland, OR now.

    I used to maintain and operate a Western State fire truck, but no idea whether it's related.
