Man Owned and Drove Same Car for 82 years

 


Can you imagine having the same car for 82 years?.
It was no longer under warranty.

Mr. Allen Swift (a gold leaf manufacturer from 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 in 2005 at the age of 102!
He was the oldest living owner of a car from new.
He donated it to a Springfield museum after his death.
Is in perfect cosmetic condition thanks to a 1988 restoration. (82 years)
