    Platinum

    So when I was young I was working in a small auto repair shop when I was looking for a tool I opened a drawer in the tool box an it was filled with spark plugs I asked the boss an he told me some day someone will figure a way to remove the platinum an he will sell them. Does any one save spark plugs or have herd anything about scrapping them?

    Never messed with them, but I hear that platinum spark plugs are common in small aircraft. Check out the dumpsters at your local Municipal Airport.

    Most of the cars nowadays use platinum tip plugs for economy and long life.
