Mm, why capital letters, it's not initials of anything, like SAAB or SIMCA.

Most of the Sisus here are typed that way and on the vehicles Iīve seen itīs always capital letters. But youīre right the word is not short for anything, itīs finnish vocabulary and translates to endurance. And since the finnish endurance is great it might be proper to use capital letters :)

I donīt think thereīs an absolute correct way to type these brand names, it differs from brand to brand what might be best. For Sisu Iīm ok with both ways.

Interesting,those Finnish trucks(today's Sisus had missed a bit of its personality,becoming almost Renault clones--they use some cabs)

PS LV is Finnish way to say abreviated "truck"???Or is Swedish acronym,like for older Volvos???(LV=Lastvagn=truck)

I donīt know about LV for finnish trucks, but I would guess that itīs not the same meaning as the swedish abreviation.

Letīs see what BeanBandit thinks. I checked the Sisu homepage and they use both ways, lowercase when talking about the company and uppercase when talking about the vehicles.

If company itself is writing them as capital letters, then they can be like this on here too, I think.

Finnish word is kuorma-auto, so the letters should be KA if that was the case.
