The plug on the car has two wires. All the plugs at the parts store have three wires. How do I replace?

The plug at the rear of the generator is actually plugged into the built-in voltage regulator. That has three wires. The white wire just goes a few inches right inside the back of the generator. About 8 - 12 inches away, the other two wires go through a two wire plug. If that is the one you need, either snip one off a car at a salvage yard, or you can just cut the wires and splice them together, eliminating the plug.
