Cars That Last A Lifetime?

Oldest rolls royce driver - regplates

Mr.  Allen Swift:  Born – 1908 – Died  2010. 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 last year … At the age of 102!!!

He was the oldest living owner of a car that was purchased new.  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)!!!
