Re: RIP Glen Larson

I came back here as soon as I heard. I wanted to say my heart and prayers are with his family and friends, and to all of you as well. I've posted this to my Facebook account when I found out about his passing. I feel it's best to share it here too: I come online and find out this news, and I'm sad. ...

Re: Knight Rider (2008) - My thoughts.

My main gripe with the series was how they handled the Mike Tracer to Michael Knight plot in the new series. It was really weak how they had Carrie just "shoot" Mike in a public place and then he took on the new name at the end of the first series episode. Without the change of the face, ...

Knight Rider (2008) - My thoughts.

I managed to pick up the entire series from a Dollar General in town for only $10. I only got to catch a couple of episodes back when it aired, but finally getting the chance to see the full series, so to speak, it was definitely quite a treat. I took a couple of days to watch the entire series, and...

Re: Fixing Kenner Voice KITT

The part that may not be working could be the electric motor on the inside of the voice box. When I got mine, it was the motor being locked up. All that was needed was a little oil to get it working and then reassemble the player. Basically, the voice box works like a record players, and inside is a...

Re: Finally, my White Whale I have caught!

If only I had known then.... I destroyed mine recreating the episode where KITT and Micheal get rolled down a hill and buried under tons of dirt by a bulldozer. Except I did it down a flight of stairs (sans dirt). Over, and over, and over, and over. First the passenger door broke off and Micheal we...

Gonna try straight Hydrogen Peroxide and see if that makes any difference. if nothing else I'll just slap a sheet of real light window tint on it and hide the yellow :) I hope this project comes out as well as my RC KITT did :)


No problem. :)

One of the first things I did today was take it out of the box again, to make sure I hadn't dreamt it. My plans are pretty much the same. I want to find a case, and display it with my Joyride KITT & KARR models. I'd hate to have to keep it in the box it was mailed in. My family runs an antiques...

How much bigger is the 1/6 scale compared to the Kenner KITT? I'm curious about the size comparison.

Thank god! I've been saying that KITT should be a Ford Mustang. Why? Because there are thousands out there out on the road, which means that KITT won't stand out (which continues on in the same tradition as KITT being a Trans-Am in the old show, where he was, though advanced, an ordinary vehicle in ...
