Which New-ish 'Bad Guy Car' would you choose?

Hi all - It's been a few months since my last post. I hope everyone is well and having a good end-of-summer. I am producing, directing and acting in a micro-budget series. We are in pre-production on the "pilot episode." I've described the project to all involved as a fun throwback to the ...

Re: Gaffs and Goofs

The jump over the lake mentioned above ... is this the same jump in Good Day at White Rock? I remember thatone in my head because the editor left the car's flight on-screen about as long as he/she could have before showing the landing, and the car was clearly in a heavy nose dive. lol I often wonder...

Re: Knight Rider - The Songs

I thought Knight Rider did an outstanding job of music selection. The two you mention above are good examples of how the music was used to set the scene. I especially liked "Torture" when it was played over the landscape shots of San Francisco in Knight of the Drones. Very dramatic, hip, a...

Re: Screen Used "Pilot KITT" headed home !!!!!

What year is that Firebird? It looks like it could be a later-80s model ... maybe a Formula model (with that back end spoiler the way it is). I'm no expert, so I thought I'd ask. :)

Re: MEMORABLE CARS

I believe it was the final Pierce Brosnan Bond, "Die Another Day".

Poor Daniel Craig ... the bad guys can actually SEE his Bond ride. haha

Re: MEMORABLE CARS

Not sure I attached properly, but did anyone mention 'the car' from "The Car" yet? lol If I'm not mistaken, in 'Trust Doesn't Rust', it's actually 'the car' from "The Car" that actually goes over the cliff, not a Trans-Am. :)

Re: Gaffs and Goofs

Good post, Peter. I totally agree. I love the fact that they used real cars and real stunts to pull off many of the sequences. And some may disagree with me, but I think the model work on the show was pretty darn cool as well. I've screened episodes with friends that have never watched the show befo...

Re: Knight Rider Sound Effects

Many thanks fortaking the time to show some examples, VC. That's exactly what I am talking about ... always hearing those same stock sounds in other shows from the era. I'm new to this forum, so it's great to read the insights of other fans who have so much information on the subject! Unrelated, my ...

Re: Knight Rider Sound Effects

Unless those sounds are commercially available, I don't know how you'd get a hold of them, as they are property of Universal (I assume). But since the subject heading is 'Knight Rider Sound Effects', I'll post something more in depth here. I find it interesting that every once in a while I swear I h...

Re: Fall Guy Truck Spotted in KR

Wow Joe! Even if it's not, that's a pretty good spot! I don't have nearly as many hours logged watching Fall Guy as I do with Knight Rider, but considering the same production company was behind both shows, it could very well be a stunt truck or something of that nature. If I am remembering correctl...

Re: Gaffs and Goofs

Funny thing ... I've also noticed the goofs over the years while watching my old VHS recordings and, more recently, the DVD releases. I remember reading in one the entertainment trades (or perhaps it was a DVD commentary track) where one of the producers of ABC's Lost struggled with making a shot of...
