Default 102 year old man with an 82 year old car

Comment: This has to be a record for car ownership! Mr. Allen Swift
(Springfield, MA.) received this 1928 Rolls-Royce Picadilly P 1 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...
