Okay guys and gals, I don’t think we’ve had a car thread for a long time, not since jjackkrash posted photos of Ct. Rockula’s coffinmobile. That thread went sideways pretty fast.
So, post photos, descriptions, praise or condemnation of your sweet, sweet ride. Make us jealous; make us laugh or cry. Tell us about losing your virginity in the back of a Ford Fairlane wagon.
I was inspired reading this story earlier today:
This man Owned & Drove the same car for 82 YEARS. Can you imagine even 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 in 2010…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. 1,070,000 miles - not kilometers!! That’s Best British engineering of a bygone era. I don’t think they make them like that any more.
