Odd Questions - Heater and performance

More newbie questions

I took my 72 out yesterday for a 50 mile ride. The odd thing is I could not get the heat to turn off. Even w/ the fan off I could feel warm air from the defrorst vents. I wasn't blowing very hard but it was annoying. Any thoughts?

Also, it seemed to sputter on take off, not much but I could feel it sputter and hear the exhaust pop a little. Ran well at at constant speeds between 45 - 80 MPH. Didn't push it much harder than that because I didn't want to get on the highway.

Is it tune-up time? Do I really need more than wires and plugs? I'll take brand recommendations for the plugs and wires, I doubt anyone is using the same plugs I have in my old Dodge.

What are generic spark plugs? Ones that just say "Spark Plug" on the box?

Make sure you get the ones in the white box with the black lettering that just say "Spark Plug" on them. For an example, see the movie "Repo Man".

Hell, see the movie anyhow, it's worth it for the general weirdness. :D
