Man Owned & Drove Same Car for 82 Years

Great story from Turo Ziadie -

Can you imagine having the same car for 82 years! I guess it was no longer under warranty...   

Mr. Allen Swift ( Springfield , MA.) received this 1928 Rolls-Royce Picadilly 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 from new.  Just thought you'd like to see it. He donated it to a Springfield museum after his death.

It has 170,000 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 2000 miles per year.
