Cars That Last A Lifetime?
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)!!!
