Default NYC SBC Oil pan Issues!

Luckily I havent had any yet (well maybe 1 or two little scrapes) but I know its coming! Here's my issue I live in the Bronx NY and just about everyone on the Right Coast knows how good out roads are especially the Cross Bronx Expressway! My car is low, and the motors VERY low does anyone make an extra low profile oilpan for a Chevy small block?

or:

I THINK some corvette pans hold less oil and have a lower profile than stock 350 pans, I'd double check though cause I'm not sure.

Try Slam Pans. Just remember that the lowest part of the pan can be no lower than the ring gear on the flywheel.

If you are that close, you are still gonna be awful tight with any kind of shallow style oil pan.

I think I would be concentrating on a skid plate of some sort to eliminate the potential impending disaster.

Thanks fella's. I think a skid plate is gonna look terrible the drain plug is the only thing that has touched to date even if I could get a pan with the plug on the back not the bottom I'd feel a little better
