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.
Check out the new SPCOA Facebook group! We'd love to have you join us! Please pass along invites to other members and interested parties to this Facebook group. This could potentially be much more dynamic and interactive than the web page forum. Please encourage members to get a Facebook page even if this group is all they use it for. Find us as Spark Plug Collectors of America (Club Sanctioned) or click HERE. Please be advised there is another group under the SPCOA name, but it is not official or club sanctioned.

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
