    Cuts from newsreel 46/59 - veteran and new cars parade in Regent's Park to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Motor Industry.

    King George VI and Queen Elizabeth arrive at Regent's Park. Veteran cars drive past King George VI and Queen Elizabeth (Queen Mother) on the Royal Stand. Beautiful, modern (1946) cars drive past. Crowds watch the parade. 'Ole Bill', the First World War bus drives past and gets a round of applause, followed by 1946 bus. (Natural sound.)

    The King is presented with a model engine. Both King and Queen show great interest. Royal Party drive away through cheering crowds.

    Crowds look at 'Ole Bill' before (or after) parade. People look at glorious 1946 cars - Rolls Royce, Allard, Armstrong Siddeley, Sunbeam Talbot MG. People polish their cars.

    M/S of John Cobb's record-breaking 'Railton' car, mounted on a trailer. Old steam car with steam coming out the top of a pipe. Veteran drivers make last minute adjustments to their cars. One driver has difficulty in starting up his Panhard 1899 car.

    Various old cars lined up prior to the parade - Benz 1899, Mors 1901, Wolsley 1903. People look at the veteran cars.

    Various shots of procession of veteran cars moving through streets of London and past Piccadilly Circus while huge crowds of people line the streets. Modern buses and taxis get mixed up in the parade.
