According to a news report, Mr. Allen Swift (of Springfield, MA.) received this Rolls-Royce Phantom 1 Piccadilly 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. He donated the car 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.

Fantastic story. One owner for 82 years. But if you had a car like that why would you ever want anything else?
