It’s not al­ways about fig­ures … some­times, IT’S ABOUT EMO­TION

WOW (Women on Wheels) - - FROM THE EDITOR -

It’s such a cliché, but I can’t be­lieve how quickly time flies. It feels like just yes­ter­day that I was writ­ing my very first ed­i­tor’s let­ter. And now here we are with Women on Wheels 2017! The web­site has kept us very busy this past year, and we’re thrilled to see WOW’s dig­i­tal space grow­ing. Again, we’ve kept the dig­i­tal line open to the mag­a­zine and so you’ll find the same level of en­ter­tain­ment and in­for­ma­tion our read­ers have come to ex­pect in the mag­a­zine.

It’s not just about what’s un­der the bon­net – cars can be vis­ually emo­tional – so I wanted this is­sue to be a real feast for the eyes. Head over to our clas­sic car piece (page 44) and pore over the de­tails of these time­less beau­ties. We also have breath­tak­ing road trip pics sub­mit­ted by our read­ers in our #LoveLo­cal Canon com­pe­ti­tion, the win­ners of which are an­nounced in this is­sue.

Who doesn’t love a road trip? Mak­ing the most of ex­plor­ing our beau­ti­ful coun­try, we’ve put to­gether a list of 15 drives per­fect for your ad­ven­ture bucket list (and there are eight amaz­ing getaways up for grabs).

Fiat graces the cover of WOW this year and we could not be hap­pier! Not only do we love the lit­tle Ital­ian car, but it was great fun fol­low­ing fash­ion blog­ger Na­dia Jaftha around as she hit the road in the 500C. Read all about it on page 14.

And that’s just a taster of this jam-packed edi­tion. Sit back, grab a cuppa (or a glass of wine) and en­joy this year’s is­sue of WOW!
