Re: KITT car poll PART II

Wouldn't those swing up doors cause a problem just like with the Delorean when parallel parking? That is actually a big misconception... the gullwing doors on a DeLorean require less clearance to open than traditional doors... something like 11 inches. My vote still goes to the GT-R. I whipped up t...

Re: Weinstein Sign Deal with WGA!!!

I heard this on NPR this morning. VK, is Glen going to be doing the revisions on the script... or is TWC going to be bringing in another writer to revise/polish? Also, another quick question regarding Glen and the script... there were rumors about three or four years ago that he had written a KR fil...

Re: NBC Knight Rider TWO MINUTE preview

To echo the comments of some other posters in this thread, I'm sure that should bosses at NBC decide to commission a new KR series, we'll definitely see the return of the original KITT, either in a cameo appearance partway through the series, or as a fairly major part of the season finale. djgm, th...

Re: NBC airs 30 sec Promo

As an advertising guy... I LOVE the concept. It was begging to be done. ...I only wish that the full instrument panel mock-up could have been finished for it. I think my biggest concern with the new KR is whether we will see signature KR stunts like turbo-boost. I know my question will only be answe...

Re: rwd vs fwd: what I am saying

So... why are you so nuts about the G5? Why not the more obvious G6? In my opinion, both would look ridiculous as KITT, but I was just curious. Well, it is others who are nuts about it.

They've got a well-known artist to re-do the original theme for the movie; it should be pretty cool. If it goes to series, the producers want to have a new theme done every week by a different artist, all doing their take on the original theme. That's a pretty neat idea. Very nice, hopefully its a ...

What really cracks me up is that the basic interior design is over 40 years old. A majority of the elements in the Mustang interior are taken from the first gen. Mustang... seeing them using it for KITT is just odd. I'm assuming that Ford wouldn't let them change any major elements of the car... inc...
