He drove this same car for 82 years and it still looks great

Here's Longevity for You!

 Allen Swift's Rollsroyceroadster

Mr. Allen Swift ( 1908-2010 Springfield, MA ) 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 at 82 years of age. That's approximately 13,048 miles per year, 1,087 miles per month.
