"How long have you owned a car?"


Mr. Allen Swift of Springfield, Massachusetts, received this 1928 Rolls-Royce Picadilly P1 Roadster as a graduation gift from his father in 1928. The car was brand new.

Swift drove it up until his death last year. . .at the age of 102.

At the time of his death he was the oldest living owner of a car from new. Now in a Springfield museum, the Rolls has 170,000 miles and still runs like a Swiss watch, silent at any speed. It is in perfect cosmetic condition after 82 years.

Dr Iain Clayre PEng sent us this story, and a response to it -

A Kaye wrote - But of course. It is a Rolls, hand-built by people who took pride in their craftsmanship. Another instance of what used to be "Brits at their best".
