    Full titles read: "The Oxygen Car! - In Germany they are working hard on the rocket-method of propulsion. The newest is a car using liquid oxygen, projecting a stream of gas rearward and shooting the car forward."

    Germany.

    M/S of a racing car being filled with liquid oxygen; a cloud of oxygen surrounds the vehicle. M/S of the car moving along; a small jet of gas is seen at the rear. Intertitle says when the steering and other difficulties are overcome, the makers hope to reach a speed of 400 miles an hour! More footage of the car moving along; it's quite noisy.
