A selection of diminutive motor-car designs in a PC screensaver.
Plenty of full-size cars have screensavers dedicated to them on oldclassiccar, but this is the first free screensaver featured here that contains only bubble, or micro, cars in it. Most were photographed at a Goodwood Revival meeting (photos from this meeting here), when bubble cars were a featured display. A set of old trading cards from the 50s, featuring tiny cars like those shown here, can be seen here.
Twenty cars are featured, including tiny cars from Subaru (360), Zundapp (Janus) , Vespa (400), Goggomobil, AC (Petite), BMW, Rytecraft (Scoota-car), Brutsch (Mopetta), Peel, Iota, BSA (Ladybird), Allard (Clipper), Rollera, Kleinschnittger, Stirling, Berkeley, Frisky and Heinkel.

If you're not too confident with changing your PC settings in this way, it is probably best to get someone who knows more about this kind of thing to do it. It has been tested on my own PC (running Windows XP) and works ok with Internet Explorer 6.0 and Firefox 1.0 browsers. No guarantees, warranties or anything else that it'll work on every new or ancient PC out there! I can't take responsibility for anyone re-configuring their Windows settings by trying this - however it should be fine, but it does require a little knowledge by the user to install it.
