MAN OWNED & DROVE THE SAME CAR FOR 82 YEARS

They certainly don't make them like that anymore.

This man Owned & Drove the same car for 82 YEARS.

Can you imagine even having the same car for 82 years!

"How Long Have You Owned a Car?"

Mr. Allen Swift ( 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.

Just thought you'd like to see it.

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. (82 years). That's approximately 13,048 miles per year (1087 per month)...

1,070,000 that's miles not kilometres!!

That's British engineering of a bygone era. I don't think they make them like that anymore.

Can't imagine the latest Jap jobs lasting as long as that.

Unfortunately sonce t heyinvented Accountants the world has gone down hill! In more ways than one :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :ugeek:

Don't be insulting Jap cars, I have a Honda and my wife has a Toyota. My previous car was a Range Rover and my Honda is more reliable. Her previous car was a Jeep Grand Cherokee and it was less reliable than her Toyota.
Not saying they'll last for 80 years, but they're still good.

Paul - yep they are better than American cars too.........but that's a given! (what would I know - as far as I am concerned the best use of the motor car is to keep chickens in!)

My wife plans on keeping her Toyota Land Cruiser for ever, she loves it. I on the other hand have a pokey little Honda civic, which is a nice car, but I would like something bigger. Driving on American roads is scary in a little car with all the big pickup trucks, SUVs and semi trucks.
