Really good trucks, the two-stroke Detroit screamers leaked oil
big time but the drivers back then knew how to check fluids at
truck stops. Climbing into the sleeper was a bit of an aerobic
feat but it encouraged the driver not to over eat. It's rare to see
one of those dinosaurs anymore.

Chevy had a version of that called the Titan.

Nissan has that name now. Not sure how that works.
