There is an urban legend about a stuntsman who jumped into one of the Kitts after the filming of WooDoo Knight and sped off, never to be seen again. But this is just a legend, I don't know if it's true...

I have read somewhere that the one the Hoff had over there was not from the show. If thats true where did he get the conversion parts from? I don't think anybody had started making them yet?

You are almost right, but the episode was Soul Survivor. The kid who played the hacker went for a hell of a joy ride off the set, but he brought the car back when all was said and done.

The car thats now in the cars of the stars museum here in the UK was one of the cars given to the Hoff after the show ended, its not a screen used car though. its kind of a replica in itself really, but pretty close as its using all original universal parts. its got the season 1/2 dash in it. I went to see it last year, its about a 2 hour drive from where i live. The scanner on it is weak, looks like a JC whitney one, and the interior is a bit shoddy, some of the LED's on the dash werent working, the headliner is saggy etc etc.

I personally have not heard about any KITT's left around. Although, I think it would be awesome if there was some. Just think about the value of having a down to earth original KITT sitting in your parking lot. The only show that I have heard that still has original cars around is the "Dukes of Hazzard". Seventeen to be exact. And I don't know how they kept those around with as many as they wrecked. :o
