This man Owned & Drove the same car for 82 YEARS.


Can you imagine even having the same car for 82 years!


"How Long Have You Owned a Car?"


Mr. Allen Swift ( Springfield , MA.) received this 1928 Rolls-Royce Piccadilly-P1 Roadster from his father, brand new - as a graduation gift in 1928.


He drove it up until his death last year.....at the age of 102 !!!


He was the oldest living owner of a car that was purchased new.


Just thought you'd like to see it.


It was donated to a Springfield museum after his death.


It has 1,070,000 miles on it, still runs like a Swiss watch, dead silent at any speed and is in perfect cosmetic condition. (82 years). That's approximately 13,048 miles per year (1087 per month)...







1,070,000 that's miles - not kilometres!!


That's Best British engineering of a bygone era. I don't think they make them like that any more.
