Those are neat! 

What were they for advertisements?  Can't say as I've ever seen any before.

I never understood the fascination of sparkplugs.  There are actually collectors of these things AND just parts, like these porcelains.  I sure don't know how one gets a plug apart, but there are national collectors that have show at Portland, IN swap each year in August. Wouldn't be for me.

They probably say the same thing about us "Why do those guys collect tractors"   Everyone has their own likes

I get asked that all the time! Why in the world would you want to collect tractors. People say I hate cutting grass and hate my tractor.

Those are some neat plugs. Can't say I've seen them quite like that before

They never ask when they get stuck and I clear their driveway  in the winter after the plow boxed them in :D

I met a collector from the Netherlands the other day, cars/trucks, tractors and spark plugs. I seen his pics of his collection. All I can say is what a collection of spark plugs he had! I think he is the 3rd largest collector in Europe?

Never seen any like that. Very nice. I have seen a few small collections displayed in cabinets..Everyone collects something,,,some collect everything.

I had a gm y-pipe arrive this summer and it had a curious threaded hole in it for some gizmo my '41 IHC truck did not sport.  I used a spark plug to seal that hole up!

That's pretty cool, and I imagine if a bunch of those were to fall into my hands another junk collection would be happening around here! I've already got some insulators and that's what those are--right??--LOL--just trying to justify more junk around here.

 

I have seen our race engines blow the porcelain out of the steel before and it still would be hanging on the plug wire. I won't name the brand but we finally went to a different one and had no further issues.
