Looks like a common hurdle for us!
The crappy threads on the middle one are from me grabbing it with channel locks to twist it off of the ez-out!
all 6 plugs were the same. The car only has 36k miles on it, so they were as original as can be. Don't have the car back together yet, but after it's ready i'll have replaced:
plugs, wires, cap, rotor, ign. coil, egr valve, shift/select cables, tires, shocks, and struts. It's going to be a WHOLE new car
