Default Old Centuri items at the NASM

I was looking at the Estes items donated by G. Harry Stine mentioned in another thread and found these goodies as well. Multiple pages of cool old Centuri kits and motors.

Model rocketry is as safe as safe can be defined in human existence. Bow and pray: GH Stine, Orville, Vern, Lee, Lonnie, Carl, etc. No, really.

I remember seeing Enerjet F67 and E24 motors on display at the NASM on my first trip there in 1982. It was the first time I became aware of existence of Centuri producing anything larger than a C motor. Took me over 20 years to add any to my collection.
I think the Enerjet era was the pinnacle of development at Centuri.
Unfortunately it was all downhill from there.

I'd like to raid that stash. All kinds of Centuri goodness in those photos.
