As Greg said, no way. I have the shallowest oil pan I've seen, and doesn't even slide thru. And remember you need space between pan and engine to remove drain plugs. A pair of 2x6s in front would have been enough, but rear drain plug is in FRONT of the sump, so you want car either flat or raised at the rear, not the front. Therefore I put rear on ramps and front on jack stands to level the car, which made the job a lot easier. Then dropped the front a notch and left it draining overnight. Good luck.
