In 1999 Peterbilt introduced the 387
The 387 eventually replaced the 377
For 2006 the latest Peterbilt is the 386, a combination of the classic cab and the aerodynamics of the 387's hood and fenders. This would look great with cab mounted mufflers and pipes. The now-unavailable 1 piece windshield would look perfect on this.
