Here's one for you detectives. How about the one lane bridge from the end of NO BIG THING? I believe it was in a couple of other episodes as well.

any idea where is the "retreat in the mountains" from "White Bird" ?

sorry if it has already been discovered, but I didn't find it in this topic :(

Thank You !!! :)


I was just watching White Bird and I noticed the two bad guys racing to the Foundation's retreat. The scene has them turning a hard right onto San Dimas Ave, but I can't tell what road they're turning off of. The retreat could be in this area, and since San Dimas Ave isn't an extrememly long road it might be worth looking around here for it. The terrain looks very similar here.

I also noticed that Stevie's apartment is off of Riverside in LA, but that's a VERY long road and I could see no crossroads.

Well guys, I'm about 80% sure I found Rudy del Fuego's beach house from "Forget Me Not".

Pacific Coast Highway near the turn off for Decker Canyon Rd in Malibu CA.

The first clue came from this screenshot:

Image

Point Dume can be seen in the background. After careful scanning of the shoreline, I think I found it:

Image

The outside obviously received a facelift since 1982:
Image

From another angle:

Image

Note the dormers in the picture above and below. They seem to match:
Image

The garage matches:
Image

The swimming pool matches:
Image

What doesn't match is how KITT can pull up right against the garage doors in the episode, but the aerial view has landscaping there. Well, I found another aerial image of when the house was being renovated! It clearly shows that the landscaping was NOT there beforehand!

Image

Now if we could only find Marie Elena's beach house, supposedly just down the road from Rudy's place:

No actually San Dimas is in LA, Oceanside is closer to San Diego. If you have Google Earth you can just type in San Dimas CA and it'll take you there.

This has to be it. Not sure what the actual address is but it's on Broad Beach Rd not too far away. Clues here were the chimney, window and door arrangement on the west side of the house, and there looks to be a skylight or vent of some sort that butts right up against one of the alcoves on the rooftop.

I think you found it! What threw me off was in the episode, the front of the house is along a street, while in real life it now sits back aways. Good work!

SHADO and I finally got around to taking pictures of the alleyway used in Knightmares.
If you scroll through them really fast it's almost like watching the show. The interesting thing is the alleyway didn't really end, they must have added those bushes. Either that or in the 1980s the road did not go through, but if you look at the tire marks on the road it looks as though they go beyond where the bushes are.

Wouldn't that be so cool to live in one of the houses right where the turbo boost took place and being able to watch it out your window as it happened? Nice pics as always.
Booonnnnnzzzzaaaaaiii!!!!!!!! As michael turbo boosts to score the extra point. His face is so funny when he yells this and when he hits turbo boost his eyes get huge and he flies back into the seat

actually, one guy witnessed the turbo boost 25 years ago, and posted a photo on:

...My mom took this picture around 1983. They jumped the KITT car for the series "Knight Rider" in the alley, next to the house I grew up in in Toluca Lake. The episode was called "Knightmares" ...

Yeah, I noticed that. I think it's cause they added more top soil, the ground is higher. Also the large tree in the back lost one of its biggest limbs.
