I really regret that Cine Meccanica has been horribly slacking these last 2 weeks (i haven’t even done an october calender…yeash) due to the unreal time it took us to put on the 2nd annual Motorcycle Film Festival that we just wrapped in NYC.

Thank you so much to everyone who came from every corner of the earth and everywhere in between to attend. As many of you know, vehicular films IS my life, and i have LOVED my life this week!

So, because my brain is still mush, it seemed like it’s a perfect night to screen the wonderful, wacky world of vehicular “CAR-Toons”. As a child raised at Marvel comics, cartoons shaped my life for better or worse. This is in no way a history of the genre, I’ve pontificated on that here before, and will again…but today just ‘aint that day. This post and the film lineup for tonight is simple a wide sweeping, swiss cheese holed look at the less known examples of 2 and 4 wheeled animation.
