Knight rider for sale
« on: April 03, 2007, 07:23:48 AM »
I saw on the news today that the talking car that effortlessly upstaged David Hasselhoff in the 1980s cult TV series Knight Rider will be up for sale in an auction this week.

The souped-up, 1983 black Pontiac Trans Am called KITT worked with Hasselhoff's character, Michael Knight, to crush crime and catch bad guys on the show which carried the tagline: "A young man set on revenge. His partner... an indestructible car".

KITT, or Knight Industry Two Thousand, was famous for witty repartee and offering Knight sober advice in a posh accent accompanied by sexy, red flashing lights.

The problem is I have no idea where the auction is going  to be?  Is it e-bay?



Anyone want to lend me a few hundred thousand?  ::)
The 5.4 swap has been called a bad idea, and considered an underpowered considerable waste of time, since 2007.

Nice to see that most donít think that anymore.

It's because the hinges had to be lube since it hasn't been used since the show was cancelled.

That is not the real KITT in the picture.  It is an impostor.   :'(
