TKR- Domino Questions

Post by My_Friend_KITT » Wed Jul 29, 2009 9:02 pm

Hello Everyone,

I have a couple of questions about Domino...

What year was she?
and
What was her convertible top when her roof was up??? What color? Was it a hard top or a soft top?

If anyone has pics, I would absolutely love it!

Thanks All,
MFK

I am not a "car guy" but I believe Domino was the "current" model, meaning a 1997 Mustang. The official TKR press KITT describes Domino this way:

"Domino is a modified Mustang built to resemble a Ford Cobra with scoops on the hood and a white stripe down the center of the car. This red, two-seater convertible is sleek with narrow lights and openings in the front bumper for lasers and fog lights. Other features include ejector seats, a roll bar and side exhaust. Domino is fast and sexy with seductive power and an exotic voice of experience. In contrast to her owner, Jenny, who is often reserved and shy, Domino is a risk-taker with a sense of adventure."

Because it was a custom car and they never showed her with a top, I don' believe there ever WAS a top. Which seems a little silly to me from a story-standpoint, but so be it.

One thing I always thought about Domino was if they were in a shootout scene just 1 bullet through the convertible top which never appeared would kill her driver.Sure the car could drive her dead body away but still.I was laughing when I saw the magnificent TKR episode where they were in a small village and bullets were flying all around and all domino had up as her windows lol.Sure make the car bulletproof but forget about the driver actually taking a bullet.

Wow...even though I watched every single episode, I hadn't even thought about that...maybe it was time for Jenny to consider putting on a bulletproof helmet. :)

Thank you for the new perspective. :)

Suddenly I can see Attack Beast chucking Duke out of the cabin to throw him in front of domino in a shootout saying"Don't just stand there save my Jenny." Then Duke gets shot.
