The following story is not Saab related but it arrived in my in box and I wanted to share it with you and then ask,,, What’s the longest you have owned a Saab? Me, well we have had our black 9-5 Aero Estate for 11 years, so far.
Allen Swift owned and drove the same car for eighty-two years.
Allen, of Springfield, Massachusetts received this 1928 Rolls-Royce Piccadilly-P1 Roadster from his father, brand new —– as a graduation gift in 1928.
He drove it 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 170,000 miles on it, still runs like a Swiss watch, dead silent at any speed, and is in perfect cosmetic condition.
That’s British engineering of a by-gone era.
