If a spark plug on a older v-10 blows out of the head, can it be driven to a repair shop or does it have to be towed I was told if you can stand the noise it can be driven. Want 2nd opinion.

With the provisio that you are looking at a local repair shop at low speeds.
200 miles of interstate would become an issue with the amount of fuel being sprayed under the hood, 8 or 10 miles at 35mph is totally different.

Drove mine for over 500 miles when it blew a plug...…..little noisy but no problems. When I got home I had both heads rebuilt to solve all the problems
