Re: Different kind of "replica"

Well, during our winter vacation stop in Gatlinburg last month my son finally gets to see the real KITT car (along with a lot of other cool movie cars). Interestingly he stuck his nose right up next to the light bar just like he does at home with his bed. LOL Nice replica but they need to do somethi...

Re: Different kind of "replica"

Before bed each night me or my wife will read a book to my son. Sometimes he wants to read in the bed. I will say that it is a pretty comfortable bed and the raised sides make for a real nice back rest.

Thanks!

Re: Different kind of "replica"

Well, it's been about 1 year since I started the bed plans project. All I can say is it's still in the works but I'm not sure when it will be finished. I will post a message whenever they are available. Thanks for not forgetting! ; )

Re: Knight Rider to receive the Minimates treatment this Jan

FYI...it looks like ToysrUs now has the SPM version online but no sign of the original yet.

Re: Different kind of "replica"

Well, all was well until the winter disipated and other home projects took over. I'm planning on late summer/early fall having plans available. I"ll post an update closer to that time.

Re: Knight Rider to receive the Minimates treatment this Jan

Almost April and still no sign of the Toysrus version. I picked up the SPM and KARR version at Amazon early March but still waiting for the original.

Wow, I couldn't imagine that. I also couldn't imagine trying to figure out how to make those deep well light sockets for my bed project! LOL

Re: Knight Rider to receive the Minimates treatment this Jan

Has anyone had any luck finding them at Toys R Us yet? I checked my local store over the weekend and they don't have them. Their website doesn't show anything either.

Re: Local Newspaper Knight Rider Article

Wow, I'd thought it was an original. A close look at it in person seeing how faded and worn the interior is you'd think it'd be about 30 years old by now. Was it a custom from the 80s?

Re: Local Newspaper Knight Rider Article

Well, I know at least where one of the KITT cars is located. When my wife and I took an anniversary trip to Gatlinburg, TN a few years ago we dropped by the Star Cars museum. After looking at this photo again (and I didn't remember this from any photos we took while we were there) the fog lights loo...

That was the day that Michael Long was born (in 1949, according to Wikipedia).

Re: Different kind of "replica"

To those wondering about plans or custom building. While I don't think my wife would like the idea of me spending another 2 or 3 months in my spare time building another bed, custom orders are not going to happen. However, I am working on a set of plans for the bed and plan to offer a PDF download o...

Re: KITT quote trivia question

I wasn't looking for anything specific. I was just wondering if he used the name "Miles". I can mostly remember sound bites when Devon was calling Michael in which KITT would say "Michael, Devon is calling". But couldn't remember if he used his last name. The reason why I say all...

KITT quote trivia question

After watching the entire Knight Rider series again this past year I'm trying to recall something (I do not know the answer to this). Does anyone know of a quote from KITT where he mentions Devon's last name? If so, do you know what episode it is from?

Different kind of "replica"

Growing up I remember watching the Knight Rider tv series with my dad. The past year, my family and I got a chance to watch the series again and when it came time for my 3 year old son to get a new bed (due to his new baby sister needing his old one) my wife asked why don’t I make him a bed? Inspira...
