Man keeps car for 82 years - the ultimate example of brand loyalty!

January 2011

Mr. Allen Swift of Springfield, MA, received this 1928 Rolls Royce Picadilly P1 roadster from his father, brand new, as a graduation gift. 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.

The car was donated to the Springfield museum after his death. It has 170,000 miles (2,000 miles per year) on it, still runs like a Swiss watch and is in perfect cosmetic condition.
