KITT's Engine Hood sometimes looks AJAR

Is it my imagination or does KITT's engine hood look like it is slightly ajar, not closed down tight. On several close up shots of KITT, his scanner slot opening sometimes makes his hood look slightly cracked open, especially around the headlights where it is really evident.

KITT's Modified Lazer

In episodes "Trust Doesn't Rust & Goliath" we see KITT firing a lazer at the enemy. What I don't understand is why the foundation didn't make the modified lazer a permanent feature on KITT. I realize that the lazer takes up alot of KITT's power when fired more than twice, but one would think tha...

I purchased my die cast KARR off Ebay for $24.95. The lower silver half of KARR is somewhat glossy, but not as smooth as the upper black section.

In the pilot episode "Knight Of The Phoenix", we see Michael wearing a light blue Member's Only jacket which made him look kinda dorky, but would later don a leather jacket in that episode. The Members Only jacket was very popular back in the late 70's early 80's, so Michael was able to get away wit...

Michael's Leather Jacket

Throughout the entire Knight Rider Series, we see Michael wearing that cool black leather jacket, wether he is out in cold rainy weather or in 100+ degree heat. I have always wondered if that jacket was made just for the show or was it a common style in the early to mid 80's. That leather jacket was...

If a Knight Rider movie is made and if it receives high ratings as I am sure it will, I hope it will influence Pontiac to bring back the Firebird Trans Am, preferably as a KR Edition. It was very stupid for Pontiac to discontinue the Firebird Trans Am, for they really outshine other competetors.

What ERTL should have done with the KITT & KARR die cast models was to add voice boxes where they would say key phrases or ever better, have them interact with one another, sort of like the Star Wars Darth Maul, Obi Wan, Qui-Gon interactive toys, where we see them fighting one another. :D

Is KITT Equipped With Seatbelts

Throughout the entire Knight Rider series, I have noticed that we never see Michael using a seatbelt. In fact, I don't ever recall seeing KITT with any seatbelts, except maybe in the rear. Did the stock 82 Trans Ams have shoulder belts like the Fourth Generation Firebirds of today. In the pilot epis...

I agree with you Fuse. In just about every episode, they would play a hit song. They even played the Ghostbusters movie theme song in episode, "Knights Of The Fast Lanes", the scene where the cheerleaders were rehearsing on the football field. Those songs sure bring back wonderful memories. :D

Speaking of buttons & other functions on KITT, if there is a Knight Rider movie, I hope that they bring back KITT's double screen TV monitors from Seasons 1 & 2. I never really liked the Seasons 3 & 4 single screen on his dash, for it always reminded me of a giant microwave oven door, wa...

Overall, I say that the extra buttons are there just for decoration, all for illusion to make the car look high tech and all, just like the Delorean Time Machine in Back To The Future, where we see all the lights, buttons, & guages. :D

I have noticed that too but never thought much about it until now.

We always see Michael pushing buttons on the overhead, like he's sitting in a cockpi...

I hope they will use the SPM feature on both the original KITT and the new KITT if there is one. Maybe they will include a hover flight mode as one of KITTs new features. I also hope they will mention KARR in the upcoming film. :D

I believe it is because of the street laws in certain areas, where having a probing light in front of a vehicle is prohibited, unless it is a police car or an ambulance, that is my guess.
