When Car Robots started up, it was a return to traditional Transformers after a good 5 years of beast era. As big of a Beast Wars fan I was, something different was refreshing and traditional Transformers using beast era engineering and modern robot designs was out of this world cool. The cool imagery that floated around the internet from Japan made it seem all the more amazing. The internet was a lot smaller back then, so something so simple as a JPEG from another country could seem like a treasure in the right circumstances. Fortunately Car Robots was brought to the States the following year, I was way to broke to import them.
