I use the Autolite single platinum plugs in both my '72 and '78
Midgets (all cars actually, but that's a longer list). I think that these
are the best platinum plugs as the platinum piece is a disk as large
as a normal spark plug, plus they still cost under $2 at my local Pep
Boys store. The down side is that they're plain steel, not stainless.
There is also a Autolite double platinum plug, with platinum
disks on both sides of the spark plug. This sounds like a good idea to
me except that they cost over $4 each, and that is just too much.
I think platinum is worth it, better starts, gas mileage, longevity,
less fouling. I would say that they last three times as long as a
regular spark plug.
Bosch platinums have a wire sized platinum piece which is too small.

For regular plugs I think NGK is the best.
