Falgas KYT - Another Coin Operated KITT Car [with Pictures]

Post by Toni Nummela » Wed Dec 29, 2004 5:53 am

FALGAS KYT

I spotted this in Mikkeli, Finland a couple of months ago. I remember these things were a hit in Finnish amusementparks in the 80s. This one has a music chip sounding very similar to 8-bit Nintendo game console. It plays a part of the Knight Rider theme in idle mode. It also talks randomly with William Daniels' voice and keeps that sound of KITT's scanner. The spoken line is something like: "Hello Michael".

There are buttons in the dash saying: Turbo, (maybe Sirena?), Radar and Start. The nose has a script text that says "Pontiac" and the licence plate in the back says "KYT" instead of KITT (no picture unfortunately :cry: ). The sticker in the dash and a text in the back of the car indicates that the car was manufactured by Falgàs.

This is not the same car as in topic: http://knightrideronline.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=6134

Here are the pictures I got:

DarKSLaiN: That Falgas is a spanish company, am I right? Do you know what it means or does it mean anything...

I surely would love to see that other one too 8)

I rode one of these. It was all black with the same interior, and with a working scanner light. I was some five or six years old and I met this Kitt at our family holiday in Siófok, at the river Balaton.

Nice find :)
I've never rode in those things, I was already too old for them but I imagine it's been really fun to younger KR fans at the time.

I never saw one of those before that looked like that, the topic link in the first post I used to ride one of them in Jacksonville FL in the 80's when they were still black then 5 years ago a KMart where I live now I saw one that was painted all red and I think it was taken away 2 or 3 years ago, atleast by repainting the rides they kept them from being wasting away somewhere or destroyed.

Wow. Cool. I never knew things like that even existed. I'm not surprised and I'm glad! How I miss the 80's even if I wasn't even born by the time KR was pulled off air. :(
