Can you imagine even having the same car for 82 years?
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 kilometers!!
That's British engineering of a bygone
era. I don't think they make them like this any more.
