Can't say as I've ever heard of a Kenworth D500. C500, yes, but never a D500. I like your truck. Good job.

I would guess Grzegorz meant C500. His English is better than mine though. Come to think of it there was KW built in Canada for oil field/logging work that resembles a w900 with square fenders not sure on model though.

This is the only D500 I could find on the net and I am not even sure that is correct.

I did find an old Dodge D500.

Either way, Grzegorz built a very nice truck.
