I wonder if it was an E series MCI coach with electrical problems?

Appears to be a Prevost of the late '70's early '80's era!

Opps! OK I stand corrected! I really goofed, as I didn't pay close attn.
B4 saying it were a Prevost. I just saw the window post sticking up and jumped to the conclusion of a Prevost.
After looking at it closer I see it is an older MCI probably a 9. Could be a 12, but I really believe it's a 9, hard to tell! Grin

Looks like a MC9 with the high radiators in the rear that Prevost doesn't use.

It was an MCI.  I saw it parked on the side of the interstate Sunday about 1:00 PM it burned about 4:00 AM Monday.
