KI2T & KI3T at World of Wheels autoshows

Post by krfan1 » Tue Jan 13, 2009 1:28 pm

NOTE: I do not work for Championship Auto Shows, O'Reilly Auto Parts, or any of the shows affiliates.

I was researching when the World of Wheels car show comes to town, and to my surprise the site shows: "KITT from Knight Rider" and "KITT from the original TV series Knight Rider"

Looking under the 'Spectator Information' shows two pictures. The "KITT from Knight Rider" appears to be the Attack Mode from the February pilot, while "KITT from the original TV series Knight Rider" appears to be the SPM car used in the Jamie Kennedy movie???.

I'm hosting a screencap of the page on my SmugMug account (I'm having trouble hotlinking from my image site):
http://krfan1.smugmug.com/gallery/6478033_tqmNh#454303574_dFXmd

Not all the World of Wheels show have the KITTs appearing. Every show scheduled to have both KITTs appearing is listed below, unless noted:
Atlanta, GA: January 16-18, 2009
New Orleans, LA: January 23-25, 2009

Chicago, IL: January 23-25, 2009 (only SPM KITT)
**George Barris “King of the Kustomizers” Friday: 7:00 – 9:00, Saturday: 1:00 – 4:00 & 7:00 – 9:00,Sunday: 1:00 – 4:00pm
St. Paul, MN: February 6-8, 2009
Indianapolis, IN: February 13-15, 2009

Milwaukee, WI: February 13-15, 2009 (only SPM KITT)
**George Barris will be present all weekend
Detroit, MI: March 6-8, 2009
Salt Lake City, UT: March 27-29, 2009


The following ONLY has George Barris appearing, but no KITT's.
Winnipeg, MB: March 27-29, 2009
George Barris “King of the Kustomizers” (Friday: 7:00 – 9:00, Saturday: 1:00 – 4:00 & 7:00 – 9:00, Sunday: 12:00 – 4:00)

Go to http://www.autorama.com/casi/schedule.html for information regarding hours and admission pricing.

Last year, Lightning McQueen form Cars was there, as well as Bumblebee from Transformers, but you had to pay to have your picture taken with either of them. I presume this will be how it is for the new KITT, if not both KITTs. If someone can make it to the Atlanta show this weekend and do some recon, then we would have an idea on if they charge to have your picture taken with KITTs, and how much.

I can't wait for the show to come to Minnesota. Since I most likely cannot make it to Knight Festival in Vegas, this will help me cope :)

Just wanted to add to that list that the new KITT Mustang will be appearing at the Carl Casper Auto Show in Louisville, KY Feb 20-22. For more information visit http://www.carlcasper.com/ There is no mention of the original. I'm going with several other people from the area. So if you're near Louisville, come check it out. The last time a KITT was there was in 2002 and they actually had an original car there. It's the one that is kept at the Kruise Museum in Auburn, IN.

That's very cool, but why does KI2T's scanner look so chinsy(sp)?

Well me and GTAKITT here went to the 09world of wheels

Few things first: KI2T's Scanner is the cheapy from JCW... Had a Red part zip tied infront of it.....
also, KI2T was not in that great of shape, from dinged up and scratched wheel caps, to the inside coming apart (door panel fabric and other stuff). Other than that, it was ok :D I'm just happy i got to see KI2T & KI3T.

Here are the pictures:(sorry if they be huge) if you want to see them better go here:

Yep! We talked to one of the guys there, that goes to all of the World of Wheel's and he said:
"They Bought it off some lady, and didn't pay much for the car, then told her once they were done with it, she could have it back at no charge.."

thats what made me go.. OMFG.. I WANT :shock:

Too bad we couldn't find the owner of KI2T.. Nobody knew who owned that one, but I guess NBC "could" own the KI2T also.
