- Can you imagine having the same car for 82 years? I guess
it was no longer under warranty... How Long Have You Owned A Car?
- 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 year...at 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...
