Blast from the past: ‘Knight Rider’ Festival skids onto Fremont Street, raises money for charity

The Knight Rider Festival: a shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a fandom that totally exists.
Mayor Oscar Goodman declared Friday Knight Rider Festival Day as this first-ever showcase of cars, swag and trivia turbo-boosted onto the Fremont Street Experience for the weekend, celebrating the 27-year-old action-adventure TV series and its 2008 remake.
A car show lined downtown, capping off both ends of the Fremont Street Experience with classic and contemporary Shelby cars.
The main attraction, however, was the set of 1982 Pontiac Trans-Ams geared up to look like the series’ infamous automobile star, KITT.

KITT: "I'm definitely dark and handsome, I'm only tall when I'm climbing a steep incline."

Good article, even though Neil was spelled Neal.
