K.A.T.T.

Post by Sith » Tue Nov 26, 2002 10:41 am

I confess I've not seen ALL the Knight Rider episodes, so if this was in an episode, or brought up before, I apologise.

Anyway, I wondered how KITT would look with a green scanner on the front. So I edited a pic with paint:

K.A.T.T.

Then I decided to take it a stage further and create a fictional new car. So I came up with K.A.T.T. :

Knight Automated Two Thousand [img]images/smiles/icon_razz.gif[/img]

I think I might go even further and create a fan fiction story. So basically I was wondering are there any Photoshop wizards out there that could edit me some more (wallpaper size) photos? I'd be very grateful.

Also, has anyone got any good story ideas? I'm totally new to fan fiction, and don't want to tread on anyone's toes!

I came up with this lame story of how a hacker logged into the FLAG database, and found info on the Knight carrier frequency.

Hoping to meet KITT himself, he tracked the signal, and found himself in a field of debris, with a lonely CPU still computing away...

...and you can guess the rest. LOL

Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]

Very nice pic! I have always wondered how KITT would look with a blue or green scanner.

Nice job.

Thanks mate!

I don't have any photo editing packages, so it took me ages to edit it pixel by pixel with Paint. LOL. Worth it though. I think it gives a far more evil atmosphere to him than the yellow used with KARR.

Please just ignore me and my ranting...

I do have a story with KATT in it here is what I did.

Taken from the first half of the ep with... um... you know, the big crushing tank thing... the one where Kitt is sprayed and his shell desolved... Yeah, that one. Kitt actualy distroies him self to stop the plain. (It makes sense in the story.) The foundation hasn't got a lot of money, not enough to compleatly fix Kitt. This is because they are starting a new branch in Boston. Kitt is rebuilt with S.K.I.N. on and in his body. (Sensory Keen interface Network) He can now "Feel" like bio critters. Any how, in order to build him some one named Gloria Knight buys Kitt and she is the one to put the S.K.I.N. on. latter she sells Kitt back to Jennifer, not the foundation. Jenifer is sneeky, blah blah blah... Kitt ends up in a research lab thingy. He gets torn apart... Blah blah blah... He gets saved... Blah blah blah... Gloria uses the money from his sell to rebuild Karr... Blah blah blah... And in boston a new car is be ing built. It's name is Katt.

And that, people, is as far as I have goten! So, I know this helps you not. But you did want some ideas.
Well, I have some.

1. Katt is a girl. (In my story she was red, but yours is good too.)
2. Katt's pilot (Er, Driver) is a guy.
3.Katt and Kitt develop a 'thing' for each other.
4. Karr wants Katt for him self.
5. Micheal ends up piloting her after some thing happens to Kitt.
6. Katt and Kitt some how must be in the same car for a time.

I'll have more latter. Sorry for this long post. I like story writing. It gets me on a role.

*eyes* Another K.A.T.T.? Well, atleast they don't mean the same.

Mine has been used in fanfics, with my permission of course,, and is female, black with a navy blue scanner. She's still a char in the making, even though I've had her for years.

It was an honest mistake, I've had KATT for about...7 or 8 years, and unfortuantly don't have a website for her at this time, blasted homestead and it's charging.

Well, in my fanfic that I'm working on. They stood for Knight Automation Three Thousand.

Sigh. Now I'll have to think of a new name.

It's funny. When I think of how I would like my "daily driver" KR car, I can see using a green or blue scanner with LED grid instead of a red one. I'd also use the KAMO name from my one fan fiction and the Three Thousand's instrument dash.

Now that I got to read through the novel version of KR's pilot, I discovered a disturbing fact. It seems that Bonnie DIDN'T BUILD a male AI. It seems that when Michael came into the picture as KITT's pilot, the voice modulator was changed into a male sounding voice in order to keep Michael from hitting on his "female" partner. So, maybe KITT and KATT SHOULDN'T get a "thing" going.

KARR, on the other hand, has always been a male AI. (Probably built by men.)

Who would have thought...KITT and KARR were like some sort of battle of the sexes.
