The Thrilling Old Guy/Cybertank Adventures!

In the distant future mankind creates massive sentient armored vehicles to assist them in their fight against inscrutable alien eneimies. But them, inexplicably, the humans went away. Why and how no none knows, but the cybertanks continue human civilization on in their own way. Their circuits were based upon the template of the human brain, and thus it is not surprising that they coninue on in many of the same pursuits as their human creators: racing cars, writing music, watching old movies, building libraries, and bowling.

These are the stories of one of the oldest cybertanks, nicknamed 'Old Guy.' He is one of the last to have actually worked and fought alongside humans. He's growing old, and is getting obsolete, but he still can play a major role in their civilization's development.

Just don't ask him his opinion of The Neo-Liberal Economists that once enslaved the human race. He'll  go on for hours, and none of it will be very nice.
