Tuesday, September 5


I read something interesting the other day: it was about the first female driver. When Madamme Levassor's husband died (back in the 1890s), he left her the patent rights to the Daimler gas-powered engine (in France and Belguim—at the time, a big deal in the world of autos).

Not only did M. Levassor become the first recorded female driver (photos proving this date back to 1892), but soon after, she began manufacturing cars... which she named after herself.

You go, sister!
