need spark plug analysis

These were taken out of the engine recently at 197k miles. I tried to compare to the inside back page of the Haynes manual. Seems they are showing the engine running properly.

Anyone who looks at conditions frequently please post...

They look very similar to what I pulled out of mine - clean engine and the sparks had about 10k on them.

The orangish discoloration is pretty typical for the ones I've seen. I can't see much more - low res picture, but the upper part of each spark doesn't look to bad - looks like some pretty clean ignites.

Mine burns a little whiter than those....'

I am starting to get a laundry list of stuff done to my car. Does that make it fast? No! Does that mean i spent too much money on a toy? Maybe. Do i have fun every time i jump in my car and drive? Hell yes.
