Not shy about Going Red

Heart health is a serious issue. But that doesn't mean we can't have a little fun with it.

The guys at Jiffy Lube at 82nd and Allisonville Road understand that. In honor of National Wear Red Day yesterday, February 5, they met the "wear red" challenge and then some. They could have put on red polo shirts and called it a day, but no, these guys went above and beyond.

I mean really -- when was the last time the mechanic changing your oil wore a red dress?

Girly mechanic

Then there was Steve the store manager who found his inner drag queen:

Me and the Jiffy Lube drag queen

Yep. Those are fishnet stockings and size 13 heels he's wearing -- and he was proud of it! In fact, none of the Jiffy Lube guys were grumpy about donning their red dresses. They were having a great time with. It was the most fun I've ever had getting an oil change.

Jiffy Lube across the country is serious about making an impact in the fight against heart disease with its annual campaign called Maintenance for Life. From now through the end of March, the company hopes to raise over $1 million for Go Red For Women.

Customers who make a $3 donation to Go Red for Women will receive a coupon book containing over $100 in automotive service discounts, heart-health tips and heart-healthy Go Red recipes. Just using one $5 off an oil change coupon more than covers the cost of your donation!

So I encourage you, sometime in the next six weeks or so, head to Jiffy Lube where you can take care of your car and your heart.



  1. YIKES! I missed all of the FUN!!!! Knew you would be right in there!!!!! :0)

  2. That is a riot. I thought we had achieved a new high when Wolf Blitzer wore a red tie this past Friday, but these guys at Jiffy Lube have set a new standard!

  3. That is great. Real men DO wear red. Love it. What a great group of guys.
