Vintage Auto-Lite Spark Plugs

Spark plugs have been igniting the fuel in your cars engines since the beginning of the early automobiles that have been fueled with gasoline. Where the price of gasoline is going is another story entirely. We won't go there now.

This vintage Auto-Lite spark plug advertising campaign claims their plugs give a similar thrill in performance as Ann Sheridan did in the 1940 film, Torrid Zone.

Spark plugs weren't thrown away back then, but were cleaned and reused until they were used up or failed, unlike today when they are just tossed in the garbage and new ones installed. It's very rare to find a shop with a full blown spark plug cleaning and testing station like was common in the 1940s
