Man owns car for 82 years

0 Comments 10 May 2013

A friend pointed me in the direction of this very heart-warming story about Mr. Allen Swift of Springfield, Massachusetts who’s father, in the 1928 presented him with a brand new, Rolls-Royce Piccadily-P1 Roadster as a graduation gift.

Mr. Swift owned the car for his entire life (82 years of driving – he was 102 when he died) and racked up over 1,000,000 miles in the car. Swift’s Piccadily-P1 Roadster was donated to a Springfield museum after his death and is said to still run perfectly.
