  • Short Summary

    Two girl friends assemble a fold away car and drive off in it.

  • Description

    Brockley, London. "Folding prams are commonplace - why not a folding car?" said Mr Perrin. Here's the answer."

    Two women struggle to roll a folded up car out from their drive onto the pavement. The two women then proceed to construct the car, they pull out the wheels, attach the windscreen, etc. C/U of part of the engine. The seats are placed inside. The trolley is rolled out from underneath the car. The two friends climb in and set off. C/U of a dog on a doorstep looking forlorn - presumably missing his mistresses! M/S of the girls driving away from the camera. One of the women turns and waves to the camera.
