Re: dude I take it all back about mustang!

While I respect your opinion, I have taken a different direction. I am actually more disappointed in the Mustang than I was when it was first confirmed. It just doesn't look the part, in my opinion of course. I just watched the original pilot Friday night, and when you compare the Mustang with the o...

Re: Interview with Ted Moser - KITT Builder Plus Photographs!

While not absolutely terrible, he did a poor job with the "attack" KITT. The concept drawings of the "attack" KITT look better than the actual car. The front of the car just looks too cheap and slapped on, especially the grill. The double wings look dumb, but that was Belker's fa...

Re: ford is an insult to the knight industries

shinobi, I don't think the Edmunds comparison video is a fair comparison in that the Mustang Shelby is just overpriced. A Mustang GT that is only $27,000 has 300hp and that Mustang Shelby only has 319hp??? A lot of the overpricing is due to the Shelby name. People will pay more for the car just for ...

Okay, I have done a wallpaper of the new KITT. It is inspired by the TV commercials where we see KITT behind a few clouds in blue light... Hope you like it! http://img131.imageshack.us/img131/4633/kitt3000pu1.th.jpg That is one cool wallpaper image, but there is one problem: KITT doesn't look like ...

Re: rwd vs fwd: what I am saying

Well I don't have all the posts memorized, but at first, the claim was that FWD can't do donuts. I disproved that. Then they said, it can do donuts, but not with smoke on the rear wheels. I don't have a specific video showing exactly that, but that SAAB team clip does show smoke on the rear wheels,...

Re: Why the cobra on the Mustang...why not Knight

I have to admit, Pontiac (or GM) was just plain stupid to not take advantage of the advertising during the original show. Ford is just being smart about it. If the new KR show is successful, Mustangs (in all flavors) will have a boost in sales. I'm just hoping that they don't make the brand pushing ...

Re: Cool GT500 Ebay Listing, KR Reference!

Looks like a cheap sales attempt to me. That's the ORIGINAL KR music, and not the NEW KR music that would go with the NEW KITT. The car isn't the KR version of the GT500, so it still needs some modifications to look like the NEW KITT. The best (and most economical) way to get a car that looks like t...

Re: NBC Knight Rider TWO MINUTE preview

It doesn't mean that the Knight 2000 will EVER be voiced by anyone else. It's just that, in the TV pilot, William Daniels is not involved. That means that the original KITT will not have a speaking role in this production, unless they do some alchemy with previous voice/over. Well, like I brought u...

Re: NBC Knight Rider TWO MINUTE preview

Interesting: The 'dismantled KITT 2000' (if that's what it is) is showing a motor that is 1985 or newer. It has the TPI (Tuned Port Injection) that was used on Trans Ams starting with the 1985 model year. (assuming it was at the same time they started using TPI in Camaros) It's been a long time sinc...

Re: rwd vs fwd: what I am saying

Thanks for the videos, seeker 78. It did open my eyes a little as far as FWD being capable of doing forward donuts. But because it's using non powered wheels to slide the back end with the handbrake, you don't get as much of the entertaining tire smoke. Plus (in my opinion) I would rather see the sm...

Re: KITT car poll PART II

seeker78, I think KITT needs to be RWD for two reasons: 1. RWD and AWD cars perform better than FWD. Cars accelerate faster with RWD because the weight is transferred to the rear of the car during acceleration, giving more traction to the powered wheels. Also, cars with FWD will understeer on corner...

When I said '60s style, I was referring to the back end of the car that you see in the teaser. However, like you guys are talking about, the analog gauges are also the '60s style. Like Victor said in another post, I would speculate that they will be the analog gauges when it is in normal mode and th...

Re: movie or new TV series,which would you want to see

This is a really tough call. If the Glen Larson movie was a continuation (like the TV series), I would definitely lean towards Larson's movie. A reboot just doesn't seem as exciting when you already know the plot. The benefits of Larson's movie though is the big budget - you can get top notch acting...

Re: KR uk says cease and desist lawsuit?

Yeah, I think NBC is pretty confident that the backdoor pilot will air in February as planned. I'm sure they are aware of the lawsuit against them, yet they still showed that 15 sec. teaser. I will be pretty shocked if they aren't allowed to proceed with the TV movie.
