From The Internet

This man Owned and 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 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 !

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