Default Who'* dealt with frozen spark plugs?

Hi all. I'm trying to get the plugs out my 95' Olds LSS. They've been in there for at least the 34K miles I've owned it, but it'* got 151K on it, so who knows? I have some PB Blaster that I haven't tried yet. I heard that was good stuff, but I want to know if you've used anything or have any other tricks I can try. Thanks!

Sounds like the last guy didn't use "anti-seize" on the threads first! Try Brake fluid or penetration fluid!
