Spark Plug Collectors of America, Inc. is a not-for-profit international organization that was founded in 1975 by Bill Bond of Ann Arbor, Michigan. The club is dedicated to the promotion of spark plug collecting, the research and preservation of spark plug history, the exchange of information and spark plugs, and fostering fellowship among club members worldwide.
Members receive four issues yearly of “the Ignitor”, the official publication of the club. The Ignitor consists of articles about club events worldwide, member’s collections and new finds. Also in each issue are vintage ads and “The Marketplace” which is for selling and trading of plugs and other related items.

SPCOA TO BE FEATURED IN SKINNED KNUCKLES MAGAZINE by Lanny Baron 7-11-2018
Recently I was contacted by the editor of Skinned Knuckles magazine, a monthly publication about antique car restoration; to write a series of articles about the club and antique spark plugs. In return he is giving us display ads in the magazine to promote the club. The first piece will be in the August issue which will be an overview of plug collecting to be followed in later issues by articles featuring various types of “Gadget” plugs which he feels will be of interest to his readers. See you all in Portland next month!! Lanny
AC LM 46B NEON BULB SPARK PLUG By Lou Fregonese, S.P.C.O.A. MEMBER 750 July 10, 2018 One would think that all the unusually designed spark plugs were in the 1900-1920’s era. The AC (Albert Champion) Spark PlugCompany came out with an unusual plug in the 1960’s era. It was an AC LM46B spark plug designed for lawn mower use, hence the LM designation. In the 1960’s lawn mowers had their share of ignition problems where you weren’t sure if “juice” was getting to the plug or not. The typical way of checking for this was to disconnect the spark plug wire and hold it a little away from terminal top of plug.Full article and photos
2018 JOE COOK MEMORIALSPRING PLUG FIX by Lou Fregonese #750 January 2018
The Spring Plug Fix would not be happening, if it weren't for the efforts of Joe Cook #726 starting this event many years ago. Joe felt that an informal meeting of club members after the drab winter months would be welcomed by all. For newer members that may not know, we lost our treasured friend in June 2012. Joe had many positions in the S.P.C.O.A. including Vice President, Co-Editor and Board Member. He was very active in making the club move forward in a positive direction. S.P.C.O.A. members and friends attended the meet which was held at Mike’s Auto Repair in Boonton, NJ.Full article and photos
