Sparking Interest in Old Spark Plugs
(Page 5 of 5)
As with any new collection, the first question the prospective collector asks is "How much is this going to cost?" While some plugs will bring in excess of $200, those are the exception, not the rule. There are literally hundreds of plugs in the $5-$20 range. As with all collectibles, condition and rarity play a big part in the cost. But getting started is easy. All you have to do is pose that simple question: "Got any old spark plugs?"
National Group Brings Spark Plug Collectors Together
The Spark Plug Collectors of America is an international organization, founded in 1975 by Bill Bond of Ann Arbor, MI. The group is dedicated to the promotion of spark plug collecting, spark plug history, the exchange of information (and spark plugs), and fellowship.
The Spark Plug Collectors of America hosts three annual membership meetings. The Midwest regional meeting is held at the end of April in LeSueur, MN. The National-International meeting is held at Portland, IN, in August. The Eastern regional meeting is held in Hershey, PA, in October.
Annual membership in the group includes a subscription to the club newsletter, The Ignitor, and full voting privileges. Dues are $20 per year (in the U.S. and Canada), and $25 elsewhere. Current membership is over 300. FC
