I just LOVED this article!

Alan Swift owned his Rolls-Royce for 82 years. At one point in 1988 he had it restored, though he was so caring of the Rolls that it must not have been a big project.

This man owned and drove the same car for 82 YEARS! Can you imagine even having the same car for 82 years? Mr. Allen Swift received the brand new Rolls-Royce Piccadilly-P1 Roadster from his father 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.

It was donated to a Springfield museum after his death.

The 82-year old car has 1,070,000 miles on it, still runs like a Swiss watch, is dead silent at any speed and is in perfect cosmetic condition. That’s approximately 13,048 miles per year or just over 1,000 miles per month.
