Bad feeling , to be honest !!!  but we got more money scrapping it and reusing the main parts like generator ,AC 's and Inverters , then we would have gotten by selling it as a conversion.

Also i paid less for my low mileage 95 MCI102D3  then what the parts for a repower of the underpowered Neoplan would run.  We needed more power then the 6V92 would give us towing a trailer through the mountains.
Now with the 60 Detroit its a different Game :)

But still lots of Memories and great trips with lots of time for sight seeing uphill!! :)

Sorry to see you guys leave the Neoplan fold, but we understand.  Maybe we'll run into your MCI someday, too!
