An Australian man's car is wrecked by mistake.
Titles read: "The Wreckers! A story of a little Australian misunderstanding".
A man is seen driving along in a car when it breaks down. He tries to restart it but has no luck, so he fetches a man from a nearby garage who takes a look at it, says a few words to the owner and tows the car off (no natural sound, just a jokey commentary). We then see several shots of the car being taken apart and completely broken down in a wreckers yard (some shots are speeded up).
The owner appears looking horrified and asks the garage man "What have you done to my car? I told you to rectify it!". The owner says "Oh, I thought you told me to wreck it!"; the owner falls onto a pile of car parts.
