I still have an early color NCR Rocketry catalog. Nice boosters, cover to cover.

Speaking of that, Yall remember Kevin Funk's Discount Rocketry business, The Unstable Rocketeer column in AmSpam, and the infamous Miss Rocket Boosters poster? I miss his unique humor and her unique boosters.

I remember Kevin. Didn't his avatar or his column picture show him in a rocket-powered wheelchair?

And Iíve got several of those old NCR catalogs. I think their stored with a few vintage issues of Playboy ...

Some knucklehead is trying to sell a pak of what they are calling super-rare C5-3 engines for the insane $99.95.
I wouldn't pay that for a pak of vintage pound-rated B3-0 engines from the mid-60's.
