How low is low on engine oil?

I have a stock '87, I checked the oil last time on level ground, engine running and at temp. I notice I had been driven it with a few qts low I had to put almost 3 qts of oil in to bring it up to the middle of the dip stick, will that low of oil damage the engine? Where is the danger level and is there some other ways to check and fill the oil more correctly?

I use Castrol GTX 20w-50, have anyone use the Lucas oil additive is that really make the engine run smoother?

Thanks,

Yahow
