  • Short Summary

    A demonstration in Paris of a car with wheels that turn 90 degrees and can park anywhere.

  • Description

    Item title reads: "Parking problem solved. Novel type of front wheel enables automobiles to turn in own length and sidle in and out of any parking place."

    Paris, France

    Parking item about a novel vehicle in Paris. The car faces camera and the wheels turn at 90 degrees. This looks very comical and cartoon like. The car manouevres in and out of a tiny parking space by pivoting the wheels - marvellous The car drives off. There is then a high angle shot of the car as it turns 360 degrees in a cobbled yard A girl with hat sits in back.

    Note :The girl may say 'take me for a spin' but this is ridiculous. Its a lovely item, comical and the car is very much like the UK children's programme 'Brum'.
