Default Sonic oil pan ooops

Not going to say where I got this from...

2013 Chevy sonic. Lady said her oil light came on and she kept on driving and she had no idea why her car was out of oil and her engine was locked up!

LOL, I've ventilated the side of my 3800 by punching a connecting rod through it.

LOL, how could you hit/scrape something hard enough to do that, and not realize you may have damaged something.
Sometimes it pays to pay attention to that idiot light!

Ha ha, yeah man she let that become FUBAR!
I have always felt like if it is not electrical related, like a short or something, then by the time you notice that light on it is already too late, not in all cases, but a lot of the time.
Makes me wish I had actually put in a brass NPT and added that mechanical oil pressure gauge I had my eye on a while back.
