Yes i said radioactive, these where marketed in the 30s and 40s to increase power, but they where a huge fail.These are 10mm chevorlet plugs un used in great shape with box. nice collectors peice or car show conversation peice, although it is off topic to cougars.I would like to sell a few. so message me if interested.
Thanks
Aaron.

I don't consider that off topic. It's interesting and cool.

I will bite if they display nice. Just wander around our site and suggest some used parts you would like in trade.

Yeah these are pretty cool considering they where supposed to increase horsepower and torque, im guessing firestone thought that radiation was good for a motor haha, 20 years later theirs some guy driving around with a 289 thats "glowing" haha. What size motor uses 10mm plugs?

Yeah, pretty cool, never saw those before either. Polonium is a "metaloid" not to harmful as long as you don't ingest it....isn't that what they used to poison that Russian spy a few years back? Not what you would normally find in your milk!! Just make sure to wash your hands if you handle them....

Don doesn't need all eight. Right?? :)

well thease actually do carry some but VERY LITTLE radiation, i had a science teacher take a geiger counter over them it was enough to pick up but not enough to be harmful.

My 'vert? Great! Finished my epic resto in June 2011 and about 1600 miles put on since then. A few upgrades (like four-wheel Cobra discs) and punch list items fixed over the winter, about 12 shows (and as many trophies) in the 2011 show season. Basically a long time dream come true and hopefully more to come in 2012.

How is your car coming along?
