SERIOUSLY ???!!!

Post by Belgiumfan » Wed Feb 06, 2008 5:37 am

How the hell did they manage to drop the tipical knight Rider look for the muscle car ?
Even if the company Pontiac went broke, they should pay pimp my ride to create new brand look alike one.

Comon guys, don't ruin Knight Rider cos u can get more money out of commercial investments. Because that's what it is.

A muscle car... :shock:

Since the 1982 Trans Am was a muscle car, the 2008 Ford Shelby GT500KR carries on the legacy of KITT as set forth by Glen A. Larson. Just like the Trans Am was the top spec Firebird in 1982, the GT500KR is the top spec Mustang of 2008. If anything, this show an inherent understanding on the part of the producers as to what KITT must be, which is a souped up muscle car that can easily blend in with its surroundings, which is something that the Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Challenger can't currently do due to them only being on the road in limited test mule form.

Welcome aboard the Knight 2000.

Thank you. What's all this, it looks like Darth Vader's bathroom?

I find it funny how some believe that Knight Rider cars have only been sleek vehicles such as the Trans Am. If you do a count, past KR vehicles have actually been a very mixed bag:

Beast: Ford F150
Dante: Ford Expedition
Domino: Ford Mustang
Hannah: Ford Mustang
KA: Ford Ka
KARR: Trans Am
KAT: Motorcycle
KIFT: Dodge Stealth
KITT: Trans Am
KRO: Ferrari GTS
Plato: Motorcycle

The 3000 is simply an addition to this family - and in fact follows up on a precedent already set by Domino and Hannah.

It's easy to bend a type of vehicle into what u want, and reffering to diffirent types of cars that has been up for it.
But we are talking about a sertain style, wich is changed totally now. But if u really want to rape ur own succes...
I think more people think the same, u can defend ur muscle car :wink:
Knight Rider and it's succes is dead then.

SERIOUSLY, the subject of the car has been beaten to death.

The new and again improved evil's advertisement is currently too long and too badass to display here. But let's just say that with now 50% more evil, this **** is great! :twisted: :skar:

The crew for pimp my ride were involved in fitting the parts for the Attack Kitt version of the car. Gas( Galpin Auto sports)which is the worlds largest ford dealer and on the ford board of directors was given the job in a week to do. By the way off topic but I heard no more seasons of pimp my ride it has ended Mtv has pull the plug.
