Re: How long do you keep a car?

My 74 B never ran like a Swiss watch, is dead silent only when it is not running (unfortunately becoming more frequent recently) and is not cosmetically perfect. So I guess, I’m not even in the same time zone let alone the same ball park.

Anyone getting close?

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 the age of 102 !!! iv>

 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...

 Just thought you would find this of interest....
