    Talking Incredible Car Story

    I came across the following story today:



    Incredible - Man Owned, Drove Same Car For 82 Yrs
    12-26-10

    Can you imagine having the same car for 82 years? I guess it was no longer under warranty... How Long Have You Owned A Car?

    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 can't imagine owning and driving the same car for 82 years. However, I do have a 61 year old Mercury outboard that my dad bought new and raced that's still in almost like new condition.

    Regards,

    Paul
