Back in the 1980s, while in my early 20's, my friend David bought a used Porsche 924. It was in pretty nice condition---not a 911, not a 928, but the "Poor Man's Porsche" 924. Still, women were drawn to that car. One night, we met girls at a bar, "The Crackerbox Palace." They agreed to follow us back to a house party. He and I were in his car and he was driving well below the speed limit. I asked him, "Why are you going so slow?" and his response? "I want them to be able to read Porsche on the back of the car." Unfortunately for David, and for me---and for the Porsche---the imbeciles at Jiffy Lube changed his oil and only put 5 quarts in when the capacity was closer to 12 quarts. That weekend, as David and I were driving back from Scranton, Pennsylvania to Wilkes-Barre, the engine siezed. The tow truck driver smelled the dipstick and said "It's burned up boys."

The coward who grabbed the guy's shirt loses Man Points. He should be arrested.
