All oil leaked out

So my baby has been sitting dormant for about 2 years. After trying to get her going I found the fuel pump to be bad. I replaced the pump and she started right up. I let her idle for about 30 minutes when all of the sudden all the oil was in the driveway. No odd noises, no funny idle. I haven't had too much time to check it out because the car is lowered and I am trying to get my hands on some ramps. My question is where would u start. The oil didn't seem to be mixed. And it appeared to come from the front, passenger side of the motor.

Do you
have the same problem?

The first culprit would be the oil filter gasket may have failed, due to sitting for so long. Front main seal is the next place that could leak that much oil. Check those out and get back to me.
