Changing plugs, quick question!

I'm doing a basic tune up to my 86 GT, because lord knows how long it's been since the previous owner did. When I go to change my plugs, should I let the car warm up and get to operating temp so the plugs might be easier to get out? I'd hate to have one snap off in the head because it's my dd right now.

If u have a spark plug socket, you shouldn't need to. If at first they don't budge try a little lube. Take your time and you should be fine.

Yeah everything is going fine. I have one plug left and all others went fine. I put some never seize on the new plugs, cleaned my wires, and I'm doing a cap and rotor in the next few hours. Then once I run all the mid grade gas out of my car, then I will fill it with 93, and have it timed to 14 advanced!
