I just have a very very hard time believing that they would place such an expensive vehicle out in the sun, sand, wind, rain, and other elements...
I was told that thousands upon thousands of dollars were invested in that car alone...why put it outside under a flimpsy canopy?

Then why not sell it before it deteriorates, gets scratched, or rusts? Also, while the show is still somewhat fresh on people's minds? It's value now will get the company money that they need now. If it's out in the sun, then they could care less if it draws a crowd...You couldn't stop and take a picture with it anyway.

they need a cars of tv and movies near there , like they do in the one in the UK , which I've actually been too,
they could set these cars up so that you can walk around them but not sit in them, and they could maintain them ,
would be great.. :kitt: :dash4:

nope. you see KITT when the tram drives by the area with the rest of the vehicles. you can't get out and stand next to it or anything. i remember(very early 80's) before you could walk up to the Trans AM KITT and talk with him, he was just on display on a high riser. high above everyone so you couldn't look inside. the scanner was not working and the windows were completely tinted. the Magnum PI Ferrari is a joke though, since it's not even a real Ferrari that is on display. it's just the stunt car that was said to be a VW with a Ferrari body kit attatched or so the tour guide explained.

The one (Cars of the Stars Museum) in Keswick? We actually got to see those cars, take photos, and sit inside them but then again we also had the legendary Michael Scheffe with us.

Sad. Canceled or not, these cars don't deserve to be in the backlot like yesterday's trash. Just because the park doesn't have the space is no excuse.
