Synopsis

The Woman and the Car is a faithfully reproduced, quirky classic from the dawn of motoring - and testament to womankind's perennial claim on the steering wheel! Take a spin through a time - 1909, to be precise - when no right-thinking lady would consider solo motoring without her revolver, and when the installation of a secret compartment for powder-puff was de rigeur. In the vintage driver's seat of this 'chatty little handbook' is record-breaking Edwardian motoriste Dorothy Levitt, exhorting the budding 'lady driver' to approach the newfangled contraption without fear and reassuring those who believed it was 'impossible to look anything but hideous when in an automobile.'
