The scene where Michael & KITT stop next to a pumpjack to analyse semi tread marks, and where they do a reverse 180' is located on Del Valle Rd, Newhall, CA,

34°27'22.82"N
118°38'33.17"W

It's also only a couple of hundred metres up the road from the Y-shaped intersection where the semi was parked. As can be seen in a post by one_man in this thread. http://knightrideronline.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=178522

Just had a little thought after posting the above location, and had a little looksie for another scene from The Wrong Crowd and sure enough, the scene where we see Michael & KITT (in convertible mode) do a 180' by the hitchhiker was also filmed on Del Valle Rd, but further west along it.

The location of the 180' is;
34°26'57.50"N
118°39'16.40"W

The following SPM scene was also filmed on the same stretch, heading back in the direction of where the San Francisco & Millston sign was located in the pilot and the above location of the pumpjack.

on a side note the hitch hiker was on Welcome Back Kotter. He played Carmichael.

Just realised, as I was about to post some more locations from this episode that I never posted the location of the scene where KITT Micro Jam’s the motorcycles, anyway… this was filmed on Del Valle Road, the same stretch where Michael & KITT pull the 180 and zip up for SPM.

Many of the scenes were filmed in the (by then) well used locations just north of Santa Clarita in and around Castaic/Valencia.

Binoculars Scene
Hasley Canyon Road
34°26'46.76"N
118°37'20.71"W

The stretch of road the semi is on here just prior to the hijacking (and the road to the left in the image above), is the approximate location where Michael, Devon and KITT in Knight of the Phoenix come to a screeching halt just after KITT has shown off by overtaking a semi on Auto Cruise. :wink:

Approximate location now, the pylon where the above scenes were filmed can be seen on top of the hill.

Cruising/also the location of Knight of the Phoenix test drive. The scene where RC is pushed from the cab of the semi was also filmed on this stretch of road.
