I owned two cabovers and drove others this time in my youth i doubt if i could drag my butt up in the cab and not kill myself getting back out.

same here Dave. 

i have enough problem with fuel tank steps, trying to climb out of a cab over would be about the same as jumping off the top of a 6 foot step ladder. 

when you are up to your armpits in alligators,

it is hard to remember you only came in to drain the swamp..

Maybe it’s just me but up here in New England mostly NH. MA and RI I’ve been seeing a lot of old coe trucks out on the road  and they look all dressed up    Nice to see the out there.  In the last couple months they seem to coming out.  Anybody else notice this.  Or am I seeing things    Mostly freightliners Pete’s and KW sorry haven’t seen any Mack’s 

I have noticed the same thing here in St. Louis this past year.

I often wonder where these trucks have been hiding and staying so well preserved ......and somehow ??

I missed the point when cab over Freightliners actually became (gulp) COOL   didn't seem that way when they were 

around side by side with new Superliners and such
