British engineering of a bygone era

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 … 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 miles ( 1,712,000 kilometers!!

That’s British engineering of a bygone era. I don’t think they make them like this anymore!
