When i went to Hollywood in the eighties and to Universal studios they had an A team stunt display and a KITT display. You could go up to the car and ask it questions. Strangly for Universal it was just some guy (not the real voice ) answering the questions ( this rather spoilt the illusion ) Normally they do things so well but not the voice thing !! So did not bother asking KITT a question did however manage to get my photo taken with the Hoffster !! ( oh sorry forgot to mention it was only a life size cardboard cut out. looks flipping realistic though ) :good:

They don't have that display anymore. But if you went to the last Knight Rider Festival you could have met the guy who used to be the voice, he has some great stories.

That guy would be my friend and founder of StarCar Central (http://www.starcarcentral.com) Nate Truman. he also recently has purchased a KITT replica.

In addition to Nate Truman who indeed voiced KITT of the Universal Studios backlot, we also had Buzz Bundy
who was the stuntman who did the two wheel stands when KITT would be in ski mode.
Jack Gill the stuntman who did KITT's jumps was at Knight Rider Festival along with my friend Jim Winburn who doubled for David Hasselhoff in fist fight sequences.

Next year the KOTWC is considering having a new Knight Rider car show either at Universal or another venue
in Southern California and of course it would be later in 2010.
Knight's Of The West Coast skipped 2009 in California to support The Knight Festival but that doesnt exclude
the good that can be done for Childrens Miracle Network.

I didn't know who was the voice, but thanks for telling me. It's sad that they don't have that part of Universal Studios tour anymore. Maybe if fans want it enough, they'll bring it back. :good:
