I used to think that Wilton took Michael's Trans Am and built KITT out of it...but actually not! KITT was already in the planning (and KARR had already been built out of a similar car). In one of the season 2 episodes (the one where Michael loses his memory and goes back to being Michael Long), April shows a newspaper clipping from when Michael was "killed", and the title was "Michael Long's Car Found". So that leads me to believe that the Trans Am was just left in the desert, along with a body for the cops to find. I believe that the fact that Michael had a Trans Am in the pilot was intended as foreshadowing, not that that car actually became KITT. Michael originally thought they took his car and made KITT out of it too, but Devon corrected him.

Very nice looking model.

And, yea...while the fact was barely glanced over beyond several paragraphs in the pilot, it is written that K.I.T.T. is not Michael's Trans-Am. And, as in so many things about the show, facts are both too often sketchy and/or left to interpretation.

Unfortunately, not any more. http://knightrideronline.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=8574

E-MAIL TO faq@racn.com:
"To whom it may concern.

Originally, collectors were made aware of RC2's plans to produce a 1:18 scale model of the 1982 Trans Am Recaro edition in 2005, but since then there has been no word on the project.

Are there still plans to release this model or any Trans Am variable from 1982 to 1992?

Thank you for your time."



THEIR REPLY:
"Phil-

Right now there are no plans to introduce a 1982 Trans Am Recaro edition in the coming months.

Great model Josch. Is that the original metal Pontiac Firebird they used for KITT??

I love the detailing you put on there.

Deveon actualy says KITT is not Michael's Trans Am in the pilot ep by saying "The similarities between this car and you own are purely circumstantial i can asure you"

i think you may have gotten the wrong end of the stick, I think there reffering to the Model Josch Modified its self, not the show.

The openings on the front of the models (where the turn signals are) seem to be larger than real Trans Am's they are based on :sad: Looks a bit weird ...
