Reminds me of a funny incident when I was stationed at Dyess AFB in Abilene Texas back in 72. I had a 70 Nova that I was hotrodding and I was at the base mechanic shop. they had stalls you could use to do your own mechanic work. I had just changed oil in the Nova when I was called away to advise on a problem with another guys car. Returned to my car, hopped in and cranked it up, watching the oil pressure gage. What seemed like minutes passed as I watched that gage set on zero, actualy it was only about 5 or 6 seconds. I immediatly shut the engine down and at the same time noticed the brand new oil filter sitting on the bench in front of the car. I opened the car door and glanced under the car to see about three quarts of brand new Pennzoil all over the floor...duh.
