if memory serves me, Western Stars were the primary choice for the Canadian owners (maybe even being built in Canada??) . they trickled down here in very small numbers. maybe the newer ones have a much better/improved suspension system, but the one i drove.....dear god........was so hard riding.
i liked the style of the one i drove, cannot remember the model name, but it was basically a boxy looking thing. like as an example, a pete 379.
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?
