Re: 3.05 - K.I.T.T. vs. K.A.R.R.

The bank with the ATM where K.A.R.R. helps John get the money. The ATM is still there, the parking out front is the same: https://www.google.com/maps/@33.7415929 ... 6656?hl=en

View from the bank side, the same buildings are still across the street:

Re: 3.05 - K.I.T.T. vs. K.A.R.R.

And I found the location of John and Mandy's apartment and garage. The house and garage were torn down and replaced, but the surrounding houses and apartments are the same.

Re: 3.05 - K.I.T.T. vs. K.A.R.R.

Been a while since I've posted, but just watching parts of the episode, and looked at a more recent view of Endless Summer. I decided to look to see if the nearby pier was the same one that K.A.R.R. was parked near. It appears it was, the scene where Mandy is running to the parking lot was filmed fr...

Re: So what's the verdict...who makes the best diecast KITT?

Between the HW Elite and Ertl Joyride, both do have flaws. Like someone else said only a diehard KR fan could design a perfect KITT or KARR replica. HW and Ertl are trying to design one for the masses, though HW pretty much put more effort into getting it right. My choice, the HW Elite. It is the mo...

I wasn't sure how firm to push on them incase I broke them

No, push each seat down evenly.

Re: Sneak Peek of New Hot Wheels 1/18 KITT!!

I did notice the seats seem a bit flimsy pushing them down. You basically have to push them down evenly so they'll latch. On mine you can't really fold the driver's seat forward much before the seat pops up on it's own.

Re: What's the best motor to have in a KITT replica?

It's really up to your preference and budget. There are some replicas running 6 bangers, but I'd say a Firebird/Trans Am would make more sense with a V8. But then again, the 3.8L Turbo V6 used in the Buick T-Type/GN/GNX and 20th Anniversary Trans Am would be pretty cool. The Crossfire Injection Engi...

I doubt it will be April, there's a ton of them available on eBay now from various sellers, mostly in California. One seller said Feb. 20 in their item description (not the shipping estimate), one said available now. So if someone said April, maybe they've sold their current allotment out thru pre-o...

Very detailed. With higher res. pictures the wheels still look too small compared to the tires on the 1:18. It has a season 2 dash, as indicated by the red "PURSUIT" light under KITT's voice modulator. BUT... they painted the lights on the sides of the gas pedal from season 3. The licence ...

I don't know, in some of the new pictures of the 1:18 model it looks like they improved the wheels... a little... the wheels on the 1:43 actually look better.
