NBC KITT at Detroit Auto Show

Post by neps » Thu Jan 10, 2008 9:46 pm

Hey,

I got word from a reputable source that KITT (Knight Industries Three Thousand) will be at the Detroit International Auto Show. It runs open to the public January 19th to January 26th.

Jalopnik is confirming this as well: http://jalopnik.com/343587/detroit-auto ... ford-stage

If there is anyone planning to attend, please check it out and report back with pictures!

Wow that's a good idea, the auto show. Can't wait till the NYIAS (New York International Auto Show)! Hopefully it will be there too!

If I was motivated enough, I guess I could take the 360 mile round trip but alas I am not...

I go to the one in Philadelphia every year. Wonder if it would be too much to ask to have it there... :)

Anybody know if the Auto show will be aired on TV anywhere, and if so, what network, time, etc...?

There will be coverage of it, not sure what channel will show a lot from it, but news media is usually there to do something. I wouldn't be surprised if NBC does something on their morning show or maybe CNBC or MSNBC. If all else fails there's always a chance that a car related channel will do something, like the Speed Channel.

My ABC spinoff channel connects to Detroit ABC and the other day they were showing the setup of the show on the news. And said they'd be showing more stuff from the autoshow. So ABC Detroit will be airing stuff on their news segment Im guessing.

Thank you for posting that information PHOENIXZERO. That's most helpful. Now it means I have to actually watch The Sarah Conner Chronicles, in real time rather then just tivoing it...ugh commercials.
