Mr. Moriarity thanks for turning me onto that sale. Much appreciated.
that's funny because i'm french but don't speak english very well ....
on another thread ( vintage trophy girls ) i learned what "pokies" are ...
and now i understand "sideboob" ......
When it comes to boobage, we all speak the same language...
Entertaining thread, for sure, but I'm such an idiot, will someone please educate me as to why one would need so many sets of plug wires? How often do y'all change plug wires?
Quick search finds "Relatively frequent replacement every 20,000-40,000 miles".
Kind of what I was thinking^^^^
I've posted my car and the fact that I have to work out of my friends garage. He's technically retired but he still does some work on older stuff. I bought quite a few sets of plug wires for 90's 350's as he will use them over time.
I just went thru the whole clearance section. Lots of deals on clutch kits if you have a late model Ford engine. $1800 kits for about $400. Dual disc.
I bet the sales office at Holley is saying: "Dang, these plug wires are the most popular item ever! Look at how fast they are flying off the shelf. We better get a new shipment of 100 sets in here pronto!"
And Mark's postal carrier is saying: "Dang, this guy has totally lost his mind! Look at how many he's buying. We better get a shrink in here pronto!"
Here was my partial load for $58 bucks, some of these fittings run around $35 bucks each normally.
The problem with a lot of these great deals is that unless you have a lot of projects to use them up on or a lot of friends to sell them to you have a choice.
Try selling them on eBay or resign yourself that you’ll have them for the rest of your life and your Estate will deal with them.
- Christmas presents, Halloween decorations
Of course they don't ship north of the border
Holy shit. That's nuts.
Thanks a lot, I just bought 8 sets that I have no need for. Damn you Moriarity
Well, it beats having ten extra engines in your basement that you'll never use.
these are chevy spark plugs, look at the application. packs of 4 for .68 cents... yeah I bought some
Have stock of wires and spark plugs to last into 2056.....ask my friends..... hell some days I just throw a bunch out when I'm down !
Do you know how many cars Mark owns?
Here's one of the features of those Accel spark plugs from the Holley site:
Designed for spark delivery
It's a real plus in a spark plug.
If it was all the way to the tail pipe, that is one sale I would have jumped on. I am relieved that the plug wire sets are gone. I don't need them, I have two extra sets, but probably would have jumped in and ordered some.
Congrats to all the guys that took advantage of the bargains offered.
Well, I wouldn't say it was stupid. Stupid would be buying the wires, because someday you hope to own something they fit. It's like that thread about building a car because you have one part of it, taken to extremes.
Errrrr ummmm I bought 32 boxes.. UGH
The gasketed style plug NOT available online though
DAMN might need more... Better hurry Only 4527 boxes left LOL
No help here, I only buy the extra long universal ones so I can rout them the way that looks the cleanest and best. Even if sparking a SBC I always get the universal BBC ones with the one end already done so I can cut to length the dizzy end.
Not bad.... My car has a dual disc clutch set-up.....
Didn't see anything I needed. You guys must have bought it all.
A boatload apparently.
I bought a whole pile of spark plugs  for less than $20 shipped!
Thanks to @Moriarity and @JNKYARDDOG_1, just bought 6 sets for the 4.3 roadster motor
What’s the quality. I had a low buck($15) set cracking after 4 years, only 20k miles. Replaced with NGK wires.
they are prestolite wires. they seem real nice and sell for 30 bucks on amazon. I am sure they are fine
