Re: confession time...

I just wandered over here to see if this was a really juicy confession...

But yeah, same here. I can't say I really hated the Mustang to start with... I was just like "huh"? But I like it now.

Re: Michaels shades?

They're called "aviator" style sunglasses because of the popularity amongst pilots (my dad is a retired pilot and he had some) but of course they've been worn by lots of people. You see them a lot on cops, too. Pretty much every brand of shades makes aviator style glasses... they are reall...

Re: Post what you all drive!

Hey- who's bashing American Fords? I love their trucks. (obviously) I know lots of people who are still zipping around in Rangers with 200,000 + miles on them.
I do wish we'd get a diesel Ranger In the US, though. A diesel F150 would be neat, too.

Re: Post what you all drive!

I have a 2000 Ford Ranger flex-fuel. 4WD, of course... needed for snow country. I really wish I had an AC, though. We got in a major wreck in fall of last year but the insurance was generous enough to pay for repairs. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v281/Mighty_Mule/jasmine-march08022.jpg

It's from inertia- the gas slugs over so far from the maneuvers it just comes out the top.
Some of my road racing buddies swap out for fuel bladders (more like a sack) rather than tanks because they take turns at such speeds.

Re: Who drives the Knight Rider truck??

I saw a guy on "Ice Road Truckers" get up and mess with a cooler in the sleeper cab of his semi while it was driving on the highway, but I don't think that was auto pilot... just a long, straight road and a very trusting driver.

Re: My vision of new K.I.T.T.

Aren't lots of car parts assembled in Asia anyway? I doubt there's a car out there with 100% US components.

I'm glad someone else said there's not much of a visual difference between the Mustang and 08 Camaro, I thought I was off my rocker for thinking that.

Re: When Knight Rider was cancelled in '86

I don't see how increasing the surface area of an object results in an increase in speed.
SPM doesn't even make it past elementary physics, for me, anyway.

Re: KARR.... Colossus?!?

(I don't really have an urge to go, either)

I'm not a theme park person in general. Come to think of it, I'd rather watch cowboy poker. (or play it myself, holy moly!) I prefer rodeos and races.

But that's neat that Paul did lots fo voice work, kind of sad that he wasn't credited very often.

I thought they were the other way around...? Didn't Paul Frees do the first one?

KARR.... Colossus?!?

I poked around for bits of Colossus: The Forbin Project on Youtube and someone posted that the voice of Colossus (with some dubbing and tweaking) is Paul Frees, ala KARR in "Trust Doesn't Rust". This was later confirmed on other sites.
Colossus:

Re: When Knight Rider was cancelled in '86

Interesting- I never liked SPM either- sort of one of those "jumped the shark" things. The "sonic boom" while KITT was in SPM irked me even more, probably because my dad is a pilot and I know how fast something has to be going to generate that noise. Not to mention it would proba...
