"for the last time" you run some very special oil or very short lived engines

I had a buddy that bought a new Chrysler mini-van.  Some years later we went on a road trip in it.  The lifters were clattering and I had him pull into a gas station so I could check the oil.  Van had 66,000 miles on it.  There was not a drop of oil on the dipstick.  I had to put 4 quarts in it to get it up to full.  Fired it up and lifter clatter gone.  

When I asked him when the last time he changed the oil he said, and I quote "Huh!"  Dumbass didn't know he had to change the oil.  It had never been changed since the factory built the van.  In fact, he had never taken it in for any service of any kind.  

By the way, he is a degreed college grad.   Embarassed
