One of the last car animes (or just about any anime) to be drawn old-school-style was the following: Ã©X-Driver: The image above was my introduction to the series while browsing the 'anime' section on a video-rental store a long time ago. Do you know how mind blowing it was for a car-nut kid to find anything animated about cars, besides Wacky Racers and Speed Racer? And in such detail to boot!! In a (not-too) distant future, were people consider automobiles and driving to be obsolete and would rather be driven by 4-wheeled automated machines, it's the Ã©X-Drivers, with skills and conventional machinery, that keep said machines in check when they go haywire. It's only 6 episodes. The one I was a little disappointed was the episode 4. Double entendre, unnecessary exhibitionism ruins what could have been a great episode where the motorcycle and the Ã©X Rider shines. In the episode's defense, the end-credits songs got slightly tweaked to honor the Ã©X Riders. Yes, there was a movie, but sadly, the animation is in that anime CGI. I got the movie before I got the DVDs of the series. True story, I bought 'em dirt cheap used from a Blockbuster in a nearby town, since it seems they were nixing most of the anime (BOO!! No wonder they're losing revenue!!). I lucked out and found both volumes. Even with a little sun-bleach, they were in good condition.
