Antique Spark Plug Exhibit

ABQ Main Library 5th&Copper NW

Installed in the lobby of Albuquerque's Main library through the end of January is a fascinating collection of vintage spark plugs from the mid 19th and 20th centuries. There's one for a Maytag washing machine, one made with polonium and a few manufactured in Albuquerque past and present. The exhibit represents a fraction of the thousand plus plugs in Bill LaRue's collection. Check out the Spark Plug Collectors of America for more and definately read about the Coso Artifact from the depths of time.
