Footage from a 1970s Motor Show in London - possibly 1971.
Begins with shots of a scantily clad woman posing on a car. Lots of photographers take her photo. She wears silver knickers, silver armbands and a choker with the words "Formula A 'D' Wheels" stamped on. The girl fluffs her hair up and poses for pictures. One man is taking a cine film of her. Other men stand and look on. There is a long shot which shows that there are dozens and dozens of man taking pictures - glamour photography. The girl walks gingerly around the car to strike a different poses.
Two women in belly dancing costumes pose on a car. A man sits behind them waving a sword (very "Fry's Turkish Delight"). The girls laugh as photographers take their picture.
High angle of the motor show. Various stands are seen including Jaguar, Morris, Triumph and Rover. Overhead shot of a car which is on a revolving stand. Various shots of cars on display including a Jaguar and a sign which reads: "Ford leads the way".
