What the heck kind of car are they using in that picture? :shock: :lol:

That's one cheap way to do a conversion out of nearly anything. :lol:

OMG! On closer inspection, you're right!

Need to look carefully at the rear of the car, where that guy's arm is!

It's an fwd Opel Ascona (1982-1989) which I think even somewhat resembles a 3rd gen Firebird. Especially the 2 door sedan. Of course the rear window isn't even close to the TA but still, even the Ascona's dashboard curves ergonomically a bit to the center like KITT's dash.
Still, the car is horrible in that picture, the nose especially and the Ascona have been changed to some kind of pick-up version which wasn't factory option.

WTF!!!!! What is that? It looks like someone was trashed when they made THAT.... I mean, it looks like someone took a bat, a few M-80's, some shoe polish, and duct tape and made that.... God, I know some one down my street that is making a Knight Rider Conversion out of a Eclipse. And to tell you the truth, it is not bad at all. I don't know how she is going to extend the front end... but hey, its not half bad.

Ricer. LOL!

As for the Opal, I remember reading that GM wanted to make a self-driving car (self-drives up to 60 mph) and it was to be the 2008 Opal Vectra. Odd coincidence. :)

Looks like they made the KITT attachments out of cardboard.

Nah, it looks like it's made of cardboard or something. And that is DEFINATELY a pickup of some sort. Take a look at this, I lightened it up a bunch so you can see all the God-awful detail...
