Re: Knight Rider at L.A. Celebrity Autograph convention

I went to the Autograph convention today - Knight Rider was there in full force. Hasselhoff was there, as was Michael Scheffe and Ann Turkel. Rebecca Holden was there yesterday but unfortunately I wasn't able to make it. Paul Casey and Las Vegas Car Stars arranged to have a bunch of KITTs parked jus...

Re: Knight Rider 2008: Did It Suck?

Playing Devil's Advocate... For starters, I think "raunchy" is the wrong word for KR08. If you want to call it "titilating" or "gratuitous", fine, but raunch is a bit much. And here's something to keep in mind- KR82 tried pushing boundaries of its own: Michael basically...

Re: KITT ornament winner

You won two drawings? IT'S FIXED! I DEMAND A RECOUNT! I guess that's just one of the benefits of being a longtime member of KRO! So you can replace the Hot Wheels wheels? Do they just pop off and you can put new ones on? Do the wheels still roll, or is it just decorative at this point? It certainly ...

Hoff Judging Red Bull Flugtag in Long Beach, CA

This Saturday, David Hasselhoff will be one of the judges at the Red Bull "Flugtag". This is that crazy event where people jump off a pier wearing all sorts of flying contraptions - and crash into the water. I've been to the Red Bull soapbox derby in downtown L.A. which was a lot of fun, b...

KITT ornament winner

So we had a bit of email trouble contacting the winner of our Hallmark KITT Ornament giveaway, and then had some additional delays with the mailing, but we finally got everything settled. The winner of the drawing was... Knight Racer! And yes, KITT bought Devon argyle socks for Christmas. Congratula...

Re: "Toy Hunter" (a bit o/t)

Thank you KITTfan! The Knight Rider episode aired last year and is available on VOD so I was able to watch it. They had a great segment on the Kenner car, but this blew my mind: He bought the talking Kenner car, "loose in box", missing instructions, for $40. That is a STEAL in my mind. Pay...

"Toy Hunter" (a bit o/t)

I've been skimming through episodes of "Toy Hunter" on Travel Channel. It's another one of the rummage shows, where a guy goes around looking for cool old stuff to buy. The host seems to have an attraction to sci-fi/fantasy toys of the 70s/80s, so it's cool to see some of the stuff he come...

Re: kitt can't recover deleted files

There are also different levels of "delete". If you just delete a file, you're removing the index information pointing to the data but the content of the file still stay on your hard drive and it's easy to recover. If you overwrite the file, then the data is pretty much gone. Almost. Sophi...

Re: Knight Rider at L.A. Celebrity Autograph convention

According to the Knight Foundation, David will have his own KITT replica at the event, as will IHEARTKITT (Jen), and there will be some other Trans Ams and Mustangs there as well. Not quite sure how this will all be laid out yet, but it keeps sounding better and better.

The Goldbergs: new 80s sitcom

ABC has a new comedy that takes place in the 80s. The pilot episode is available as a special preview on Hulu. The opening segment is a montage of TV shows and movies from the 80s and yes, Knight Rider is there. Look for other KR references (hopefully!) in future episodes.

Re: Trip to Knightmares dam

There is a short (quarter mile?) trail that takes you right to the dam. I was surprised how open it was. I did not try to climb up the wall - I was wearing bike shoes, and there was a lot of glass around so I didn't want to try barefoot. I was hoping just to be able to cross the dam on top. There is...

Trip to Knightmares dam

I've lived in Los Angeles for almost 20 years, and I have never been to the Sepulveda Dam (from "Knightmares"). I've driven by it probably 100 times (easily) but I have never actually walked over to it. Until today - I finally made it. There's a little more graffiti than there was in the 8...

Re: Knut Rider

Here's an odd thing.... For as long as I can remember, probably going back 15+ years since the beginning of KRO, there has been a debate over what KITT's top speed was. I've always been on the side that says it's around 300mph or so, with SPM. Others say it's 400+. Well, in "Knut Rider", M...

Thanks Knight Racer, but the original page is still online:

For those who don't recall, I hosted a "Summer Knights" where every day I added a new summer-related photo or sound file. I was capturing images off of VHS recordings so the quality isnt quite what we'd see today!

Knight Rider spent a lot of time at the beach or doing other "summer-y" activities. It's true for all versions of the show (well, maybe not Knight Rider 2010.) What are your favorite/most iconic summer moments from the franchise? Michael & Stevie playing frisbee at the beach? KITT hydr...

Re: Knight Registries Press Release

My advice to you Nelson and everyone else would to wait and see what they have to offer. If it's something new and useful or enjoyable to you, great! I'm sure they would love to have you participate. If you think it's more of the same-old-same-old, then just continue doing what you're doing.
