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 anymore.
