I haven't driven anything that old, so I've been stuck with FLD/ FLC crap. There was another gig I ran for a while where I had a '96 W900, stand up sleeper, with almost a million miles on it (new top end). For the amount of use it had, that was a very good truck. I'd like to get me a w9 if I ever decide to get my own truck...
