    Paris, France.

    Various shots stunt drivers on Champs Elysees with Arc de Triomphe in background: they stop their cars suddenly making them skid. C/U French taxi drivers looking perplexed. More shots skidding. Various shots Jean Sunny, dare devil driver and world record holder, drives up ramp on one side of his carp and travelled down Champs Elysees on two wheels only. He passes press photographers. A man climbs out on passenger side and hangs out of window as car travelling along on its two wheels. Car slows down and returns to its normal position. C/U Jean Sunny being kissed by pretty girl at the end of his stunt.

    Stunts are sponsored by French Road Security Organisation!
