Re: 3.18 - Ten Wheel Trouble

The scenes of Michael and KITT chasing Joe were all filmed on Pico Canyon Road - also used as the location in ‘Knight of the Phoenix’ where KITT first talks and they skid to a halt and where Michael falls asleep, passing the police car. 34°22'40.05"N 118°35'10.59"W http://i1011.photobucket...

Re: 3.18 - Ten Wheel Trouble

Where is the house where the girl lives with her family, and she "deserves a spanking", as KITT says. I've only just seen this, as I'm just about to add some 'Ten Wheel Trouble' locations. It’s called ‘Hyatt House’ and is located on Pico Canyon Road (or Potrero Canyon Rd as it is labelled...

Re: House Of The Rising Sun Location Disclosed

Finally got time to post my visit to the HOTRS location a while back . Although it no longer exists, I tried my best to create a few 'then and now' shots here. These are brilliant one_man , I’d only recently taken another look on Google Earth’s street view, and they’ve updated the imagery for the o...

Re: 1.01 - Knight of the Phoenix (Pilot)

Now… I suppose this could be considered a minor scene, in that it's rather brief, but like the scene where KITT first speaks, it's a memorable one, because this is the location where KITT first demonstrates his ability to drive himself, YES… this is the location where Michael (with Devon at his side...

Re: 4.15 - Redemption of a Champion

They used the exact same entrance in "The Witness" episode of T.J. Hooker. (There was also a huge "crew in shot" error during this scene of Hooker too). And filmed right in the heart of 'Studio City'... no idea if this location has been previously posted in the locations thread,...

Re: 1.02 - Deadly Maneuvers

Filmed on the Newhall Film Ranch in Valencia, the location of many a Knight Rider episode. The amazing thing with this location, is that the whole ranch has barely changed since Knight Rider was filmed, you could quite literally film scenes their today, and it'd look exactly like footage shot in 198...

Re: 1.01 - Knight of the Phoenix (Pilot)

Millston, Silicon Valley … in reality, Ojai, California. Hard to imagine they sent a crew up there for a 2 second cut scene, so likely either stock footage, or something they already had in a vault... still, a bit of a mission to find, but it's good to finally see what town doubled for Millston all ...

Not a major location, just a quick cutscene... (about 32:16 in) but hey, if we want to document all of the filming locations... Located on 'East Carlisle Road, Westlake Village'. http://i1011.photobucket.com/albums/af237/49smk/pilot_01.jpg http://i1011.photobucket.com/albums/af237/49smk/pilot_02.jpg...
