Default Man drives same car for 82 years.

Link to the article




"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..."






what's the longest you ever had a car?

I still have my first car I bought in 2004, but it hasn't been driveable for a few years now. It will be again!

I saw you mentioning the Passat in another thread. I had no idea you still had it.
