It appears this man not only took great care of himself but his car too!!! He lived a TCOY LIFE!

They certainly don’t make them like that anymore.
Can you imagine having the same car for 82 years!
“How Long Have You Owned a Car?”
Mr. Allen Swift (Springfield, MA.) received this 1928 Rolls-Royce Piccadilly-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 that was purchased new. Just thought you’d like to see it.
It was donated to a Springfield museum after his death.
It has 1,070,000 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 13,048 miles per year (1087 per month)…
