New York Spark Plugs
My research interests have always primary been with local history. As such, I have a particular fondness for New York-made spark plugs. I am currently assembling the history of all New York spark plug manufacturers that produced plugs before 1930. While researching, I also continue to try to add more examples of these spark plugs into my reference collection.
My search list is constantly changing, but here is a list with phots of plugs that I am currently searching for. Values can range from just a few dollars to several hundred.

Spark Plug Advertising Books
I have assembled all of the spark plug advertising I have been able to find from about 1900 thru the mid 1930’s into four large hardcover volumes. These volumes are a wonderful resource for collectors and are currently available for purchase. Click below for more information.
