I know, but the car runs fine, I've taken it on many many road trips with those plugs, the trip to NEBF, the trips to Rochester NY from Lancaster OH (twice), Toledo OH from Lancaster, Port Clinton, OH from Lancaster (four times) and it did fine, no hiccups or anything.

Could this kill the motor?

With the Delco ignition I'd expect your plugs to look just a little cleaner than mine. The wider gap could be making them run hotter than normal. I'd change them & check a couple in a week or two.
