Mr.  Allen Swift:  Born – 1908 – Died  2010
Rolls Royce Phantom 1928
This man owned & drove the same car for 82 YEARS.

Can you imagine even having the same car for 82 years?
Mr. Allen Swift ( Springfield , Massachusetts ) 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 in 2010 … 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 anymore.
