Re: Barris and Herbie

George Barris has an extremely impressive body of work. Herbie is not included in this body of work in any way, unless you count the walk-on role Barris had carrying one fender in the 1997 TV remake of "The Love Bug". Carey Loftin's stunt team and Danny Lee's special effects team are respo...

Re: License Plate Flipper for your KITT

I'd be interested one or a pair for another of my movie cars (the James Bond car), that's a nice bit of linkage for $150.

I may know a KITT or two which may want one too, not sure if they're on this message board.

Re: Knight Rider 2010 car was based on a Thunderbird ?

It's a stock 1989 thunderbird 3.8L with a stock chassis- you can see from http://www.jayohrberg.com/Knight_Rider_2010.html they just pulled the trunk off and put a fiberglass plug on it. Then for the actual filming they cut the end of the plug off with a sawzall and mocked up a boxier nose. --Brian

Hocus pocus, your wish is my command. Wish I hadn't spent so much time doing all of the research, but I'd be glad to share it with anyone who would save the ugly beast.

Almost bought the Knight Rider 2010 car

I have been negotiating for about 3 months with an auto dismantling junkyard in Ridgecrest which has the one and only prop car from "Knight Rider 2010". I was buying it with the intent to make it a wierd-as-hell daily driver to replace my commuter car which was on borrowed time. Well, the ...

Re: Live Discussion - Fight Knight

Just watching this one on Hulu and had a silly piece of trivia to share... The fight bar in this episode is none other than Newcomb's Ranch on the Angeles Crest Highway. Looks like a lot of the driving scenes were done on the highway too. It's a fun bit of road for car/motorcycle cruising, most of t...

Re: Live from Knight Rider Car Show at Saugus Speedway

Just got back from the show - I had to duck out early for a dinner appointment.

All I have to say is this:

Nick's book is really rather amazing. I'm buying a copy when the thing comes out for sure.

KI3T at NASCAR pre-show in Fontana 8/30/08

Anybody catch the pre-show of the NASCAR race yesterday? Star Car Central did a pace lap in the pre-show, joined by the Mustang KITT from NBC. Not sure if it was the wedge attack version or the regular GT500KR. House hunting kept me away from the event and away from the TV that afternoon, but I'm su...

Calling all street KITTS and KARRS

Hello Knight Rider fans- I've been watching this site a long time to get my Knight Rider rumor fix, but this is the first post! I'm part of "Star Car Central", a car club of TV and Movie cars run by Nate Truman in Hollywood who owns a 1966 Batmobile replica. We do charity events and car sh...
