Definitely some interesting Centuri kits that Jonathan had in his collection to watch at the auction. Brings back some great memories seeing those kits again in bags after so many years!

There were some classics in that batch, no doubt. A good number of them went for north of $100. I figured that T-Bird would be one of the favorites and it did go for the most of any of the other Centuri kits at about $150. I didnít need any of these kits so it was nice just to watch the auctions play out.

One of the very most interesting is the Lilí Hercules II. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Centuri-Li...2835?nav=SEARCH When Matt mentioned it to me I had never heard of it so I looked it up and found that it never appeared in any catalog. It appears to be a transition kit between the Shorty motor Lilí Hercules and what then became known as the Lilí Herc, Which was designed for regular motors. Really interesting and wear kit. Exactly the kind of thing that Jonathon reveled in.

If anyone here knows anything more about the kit I would love to hear it.



Don't know much about it, and I have no idea when or where I got this (probably in an eBay lot) but here it is:

Matt (ManofSteele)-
Based on one of Jonathan's posts, he stated that he had oodles of unfired Enerjet motors.
Any chance those will be coming up for sale ???

I haven't found them yet. If they do come up, I do plan to sell them, but I'm not sure exactly how I am going to do it - still looking at options.
