SpacepsychoRobert, I appreciate the photo credit but it was my mom Lilian and sister Desiree, who both live in the SFV, that photographed the F-1 move. They met a wonderful woman who was in charge of the F-1 move for Aerojet, she told my sister that her father helped build all of the Apollo F-1 engines and it was like an old friend coming home.

My mom and sister were invited to the formal ceremony of the F-1 unveiling, so more pictures to follow.

That said, I spoke with a gentleman who worked on all of the Apollo command modules in Downey, he told me about the CM SPS engines on stands that were being scrapped after the program was cancelled. He said the engines were sold for $1,000 each and one scrap dealer purchased all of them. There has to be just one of these engines in someone's garage.
