How Long Have You Owned Your Car?

Mr. Allen Swift from Springfield, Massachusetts, USA, received this 1928 Rolls-Royce Picadilly P1 Roadster from his father - brand new - as a graduation present in 1928.

He drove it up until his death in October 2005 at the age of 102. He was the oldest living owner of a car from new, ever.

Mr Swift donated the car 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 after 82 years.
