I just did a cam weld on a 99 SHO which still, unbelievably, had the original spark plugs in the rear head. NO ONE had EVER been in this engine.
EVERY bolt had to be attacked with extreme prejudice - nothing came out easy.

Clearly, spark plug #3 hadn't fired in months - it is totally carboned over.

Never seen anything quite this far along before.

Here's your pic, Mr. Nimz -

the "wires" are non-existant since the V8SHO uses coil-on-plug.

#3 plug is impressive. Dang.

Amazing it even made highway speeds.
Plugs are universally neglected... Almost as neglected by Joe Public as the transmission fluid.

Hopefully the person just bought the car. I can't imagine anyone with a SHO and knowing anything about them having plugs like that.
