And Kent replied:  "When I was taking my new-to-me '94 100 S Avant from NH to SC,
and didn't have time to change the oil, I took it to the "best
oil change in town" as voted by some newspaper or magazine poll.
It was a Valvoline Instant Oil Change in Concord NH".

I like the local Wally World and Jiffy Lube (et. al.) stores because they keep me busy rethreading drain plug holes and replacing oil pans.  Over the years, I've made a substantial amount of money from them.  In addition, I get a lot of work from their (more properly "former")customers who complain of noisy lifters, a problem commonly solved by installing a proper German oil filter and the correct weight oil.
