    whoa, i didn't know about a scania which looks like an american truck...

    when i think of scania trucks, i have an image of a european cabover truck...

    i haven't really seen or heard of one which looks more american...

    is this one powered by a V8 if i'm not mistaken???

    this one is somewhat of a classic and i love it!!!

    Blackrose and Squirrel,

    This is a T112H - T-Cab, 11 litre engine, 2 Series and H - short-haul sleeper cab!

    So it is not a V8 as previously mentioned - it's only a 11 litre 6 cylinder!

    Joe

    Sadly, this is only a 6 cylinder - my comment from 41 months ago shows a break-down of the model number
