Free screensaver featuring 25 road & competition cars.

Mercedes Benz cars
There are lots of free classic car screensavers available at oldclassiccar, including this one which features classic Benzes from the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and the 1980s. There are 2 versions - the full 25 photo version, and a cut-down version with 12 of the images included.

I didn't have any great photos of earlier Mercedes-Benz models, which is why I stuck with the 'classic' era. Various models are featured, including the SL 2 seater, SLC, the gullwing, Ponton and Fintail saloons, various streamlined racers and the lovely W196 grand prix car and 300SLR, a W123 saloon, and a 70s S-Class. All the photographs were taken by myself, at events such as Goodwood, Tatton Park, the Rally of the Tests, and other local shows.

Pls note
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.
