Mr. Allen Swift ( 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 last year…..at the age of 102 !!!
He was the oldest living owner of a car from new. Just thought you’d like to see it.
He donated it to a Springfield museum after his death. It has 170,000 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 2000 miles per year…
I have gone through a bunch of cars in my life. I once had a 1968 Chevy pickup that I owned for about 10 years. I believe that is the longest I ever held onto a car. Here is what mine looked like new, too bad I bought it when it was 20 years old.
What is the longest you have owned a car?
