Despite there being lots of classic car screensavers at oldclassiccar.co.uk, this is the first to feature classic motorcars from VW's Wolfsburg plant in Germany. The design, dreamt up by Ferdinand Porsche and adopted by Adolf Hitler as his people's car (hence Volkswagen) went on to become one of the all time greats in car design, and longevity! After the war, production of what would become known as the Beetle, really kicked off and led to spin-offs such as the Type 2 camper vans (plus pickups & panel vans), and the Type 3 Variant model. Examples of the Type 3, various VW Bugs, and a replica of a military Kubelwagen, feature in this screensaver.
Photographs of ten VWs appear in this download, all of which I took at public shows in the last few years.

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.
