Re: Locations ?

Good news and bad news. Bad news first. I think we can pretty much rule out the House of the Rising Sun being Cal Islands. This does not mean, however, that the House of the Rising Sun didn't sit at Sierra and Via Princessa - it just means it never went by the name "Cal Islands." I posted ...

Re: Locations ?

Handzus' Stupid Fro: I didn’t see your post in this long book, but finally found it. One of the pictures you posted has David sitting in the car talking to KITT and an arrow pointing to a house in the background. It is the same townhouse located adjacent to the bottom of the triangle shaped propert...

Re: Locations ?

You know what? After examining it a bit more, I think you HAVE found it! Nice work! The three points that convinced me... 1. The driveway entrance - looks nearly identical to KR: http://i131.photobucket.com/albums/p314/firebirdta84/PDVD_016-2.jpg http://i131.photobucket.com/albums/p314/firebirdta84...

Re: Locations ?

And some more... This place was used in The Beverly Hillbillies movie in '93. It looks like even in 1993 the place had undergone a renovation. However, you'll notice the grounds look VERY much like the Knight Rider sequences from 10 years prior (with the lions and the four tall skinny trees). You ca...

Re: Locations ?

Here's some more dirt on the place When I first moved to Southern California, in the year 2000, this mansion was actually under construction. (There are some differing reports which state the mansion was built in 1991, but when I visited the property in 2000 and in subsequent years, it was still und...

Re: Locations ?

Here you go Joe. I think the place has seen better days. The front door has moved, but if there is any doubt that it's the right place, you can match up the shape of the stones. http://i131.photobucket.com/albums/p314/firebirdta84/21-ShortNoticempg_002120192.jpg shortnotice1.jpg http://i131.photobu...

Yeah, that commercial was mentioned a while ago in a topic I can't remember the name of, I haven't seen it so I'll have to take your word for it as to how he looks now. As for Patricia, she seems to have zero interest in KR or anything acting wise due to her other commitment. Yeah I saw that commer...

So...I've been spending way too much time trying to find the location of Arthur Wexley's house in "Short Notice". The visual clues would make it easy (you'd think). It's located right around the corner from La Mesa Ave/Rd/St: http://i131.photobucket.com/albums/p314/firebirdta84/21-ShortNo...

Possibly something more for the Comtron building(s). In the image below the ladies are seen walking from Comtron to the House of the Rising Sun. Through research, I don't believe the House of the Rising Sun is actually across the street from Comtron. However, the scene below shows a guard shack and ...

Re: Locations ?

Now I'm thinking this lower structure is the same building, but the roof has been extended over the porch. This is the only house in the area to be so low to the beach. It appears as though the beach has been eroded away since then and they have added these rocks to try to prevent that. http://bluf...

So with the market the way it is these days (crappy), I decided to look up my home on Zillow.com and see how accurate it was. It seems to be pretty accurate in terms of value for my area. Then I got the wild idea to look up some of the KR filming locations. Check this out, Zillow says the FLAG mansi...

Awesome... Joe, have you been keeping track of all of these locations in Google Earth with placeholders? I'd like to see in one shot where all the filming took place across the city.
