The Oldest One-Owner Car in History And more of Northern California

You Create the Place

In 1856, Rabbi Avraham Yaakov Friedman of Sadugura, was arrested because of a libel and was kept in prison.

"I am permitted to serve the Almighty undisturbed," Rabbi Avraham Yaakov told his visitors, "What difference does it make whether I am here, or anywhere else?"

His father in law, Rabbi Aharon Perlow of Karlin, who was allowed to stay with him for a while in his cell, asked him, "How do you feel in this awful place?"

Rabbi Avraham Yaakov replied, "Does the place one is in make a difference? The Almighty's glory fills the earth. He is everywhere. Even here, in this awful place."
Love Yehuda Lave

The great rabbi and spiritual master above was able to find G-d even in prison and the place he was at made no difference to him. I am not at that level and the place I am at makes a great difference to me. I like beautiful places.
Enclosed please find the link to the U-tube of the first part of the second day of our three day trip. Pebble beach in Crescent City and more of the Smith River:
 Speaking of good places, Obviously this guy didn't park his car in  the Wallmart lot.

This man owned and drove the same car for 82 YEARS!!!

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

Mr. Allen Swift (Springfield, MA.) received this 1928 Rolls-Royce Piccadilly-P1 Roadster (brand new) from his father 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 1,070,000 miles on it, still runs like a Swiss watch, is dead  silent at any speed and  is in perfect  cosmetic condition (after 82 years).   That's approximately 13,048 miles per year (1087 per month). 
Now feast your eyes on this...
see attached picture below.
What  a beauty!!!
1,070,000 - that's miles, not kilometres!
That's British engineering of a bygone era.

I don't think they make them like that anymore.
