E3 Spark Plugs is Stoked to See the Custom Car Parts Business Revving Up

Financial times are tough, no doubt. But we’re starting to see signs that America is on the road to an economic recovery. And E3 Spark Plugs is stoked to see one of those signs – a resurgence in custom car parts sales. Sales of custom car parts are picking up as the American economy gets back on the road to recovery. Throughout the recession, high-end custom car parts and extensive overhauls of vehicles by serious collectors and hobbyists slowed down. But another demographic picked up just a bit. Regular Joes itching for a new ride, but leery of spending the cash for one instead opted to dress up their cars and trucks with new custom parts – giving their rides a whole new feel for a lot less money. Today, the $30 billion-a-year industry is getting back up to speed,...

What Four-Year Itch? Americans are Keeping their Cars Longer, E3 Spark Plugs Finds.

Like your girl's hot new haircut, an aftermarket upgrade to your ride can make you feel like you've got something brand new. E3 Spark Plugs wasn’t too surprised to see results of a recent survey that shows Americans are dodging that “four-year itch” and keeping their cars for longer than ever before. After all, the economy’s tight, gas prices continue to climb and – thankfully – many of today’s automotive parts and engine components are built to last. According to R.L. Polk, a leading automotive market research firm, Americans are keeping new cars for an average 63.9 months – up 4.5 months from the same period in 2009. And we’re keeping used cars for 46.1 months, up 3.7 months from 2009. That’s a combined average of 52.2...

Stranded Snomobilers Know the Value of an Extra Set of Spark Plugs

Don't be this guy. Before you hit the slopes, pack a snowmobiling emergency kit (including extra spark plugs), buddy up with a fellow sledder and call your mom. Snowmobiling is in full swing right now, and sheriff’s deputies and rescue workers are reminding riders to take along emergency supplies – including an extra set of snowmobile spark plugs. Just this week, sheriff’s deputies and rescue workers in Oneida, NY were dispatched to help a stranded snowmobiler who ran his Ski Doo across a swamp area just off the main snowmobiling trail. Not a smart idea, for sure. When his sled started to break through ice covering the swamp, the driver accelerated, hoping it would help keep him on the surface. No such luck. The sled hit a patch of cattails and deep water and...
