Cool KITT Picture...

Post by Shootsean » Fri Feb 17, 2006 3:08 pm

Took this picture when they jumped the KITT car in the alley next to my house in Toluca Lake around 83.... Can anyone help me figure out what episode it was in?
Thanks,
Sean

Wow, nice pic. Dunno what episode that is but maybe someone will help... I guess ´83 was the second season?

Wow, that's awesome photo! Thanks for sharing it :) Also, nice to know the filming location for that scene.
The episode seems to be 2nd season episode "Knightmares", that's the scene where KITT is going after Michael who has lost his memory.

Thanks KITTfan... I've been wanting to get a copy of that episode all these years and now I know where to look!
Here is a satellite photo of the location...
The car was jumped in the alley over the street top to bottom in this image.

Shootsean - do you still live in the area where that shot was taken? If so, the next time you are by, you should snap some shots of how it looks today and post them. Would make for some interesting then-and-now shots!

That's from the episode where Michael looses his recent memory and he reverts back to Michael Long, isn't it?

Nice work KITTfan, you beat me to the punch!

Joe - Sean has also emailed off line, so I mentioned this to Michael Pajaro and he's already had similar thoughts!

BTW Sean, did you meet anyone from the cast, or was it just a second unit crew doing the jump?

I keep looking at the two photos... there are some differences, but a lot can happen in 20 years. The telephone pole is ni a different location, but that could have been moved. What really sold me is the location of the balcony on the right. Even though the wood facade is no longer there, the basic structure of the building looks the same. However, I think I need to drive down the allwy further to see if maybe I picked the wrong corner.

i don't think that is the same place. if you look at the trees, they are all different. the ones in the recent pic are much smalller but look large enough to have been around for more than 20 years. i also don't think 99% of everything that was there would have been remodeled to the extent it is showing in the current pic. then again, you never know. i could be wrong :? !

Mike,

Here's some screen captures from the episode. Maybe this will help identify the alley for sure:

The look on Michael's face was priceless! :lol: Loved how KITT paused a moment, as if computing the parameters for the jump and setting his system to accomplish it, then revving up the engine to go. :)

KITT rules!
