The left turn signal was on for the last 34 years as he drove around.  A testament to Lucas?

Can you imagine even having the same car for 82 years?

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. 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)…

1,070,000 that’s miles not kilometers!!

That’s British engineering of a bygone era. I don’t think they make them like 
this any more.
