I love cabovers, and I'm saddened to see how rare they are here in the USA. The American market is probably the most hostile on Earth when it comes to cabover trucks - the cabover semis have largely gone extinct here and the design only holds on in lighter classes where their space efficiency is more immediately valuable. I see more cabovers in the New York area than I see anywhere else, and I doubt that's a coincidence. I really wish that Americans would embrace this design more - aside from being better looking than most conventional cabs, I honestly believe they make more sense in many cases too.

This particular example is a Ford Cargo, a cabover tat proved particularly popular with the United States Postal Service. Ford doesn't build these for the US market anymore, but they can still be found new in Latin America and India where they are still built in substantial numbers.
