Replicas

Post by Arjun » Wed Dec 31, 2003 9:33 am

I would like a list of car/bike replicas that you would like to make, as also some you just would not want to make. An unusual question, but worth thinking about. There are a few Trans-Am fans who don't like it when these Knight Rider fans make a total replica of KITT from a T/A. For instance,

These are replicas that I would like to make-
KITT/Original KARR
NEw KARR
Nash Bridges car
Tracks/Smokescreen from Transformers
Street Hawk

And some I would not like-
General Lee- That orange colour sticks out sometimes.
Automan's Autocar- A mess of a Lamborghini Countach!
Herbie- I'm not much of a Beetle fan, at least not the design
The 60's Batman Batmobile, or any other- One look is enough
All TKR vehicles, except the SUV
The KR2010 car, whatever it was
The KR2000 car (KI4000).

I'd like to do a KIFT someday.

I think my next one is going to be "the Son of Trigger," the 1980 Turbo T/A from "Smokey and the Bandit 2."

I think the car from KR2010 was an early 70s model Mustang (Mach 1?).
KITT project is on again!

Currently working on: brand new stock tan interior, almost done!

I can't tell what that car is, since there are several designs for Mustang, someone said it's a deLorean, and it's difficult to identify the vehicle through that mess! The movie did have a decent theme tune.

As for KIFT, I am confused. Was it a Pontiac Banshee or a Dodge Stealth? The machine looked like a lot like a Banshee, but the Dodge Stealth looks very different. In fact, the Stealth looks like a Firebird/F40, but not even close to the KIFT! I don't remember the story behind this. Do you?

It's a Dodge Stealth modified to look like a Banshee, but not totally, there were some variations including the actual nose itself. But the base car is a Dodge Stealth.

I recently saw a actual Knight 4000 dash molded off the original. They also had the steering wheel.

Cool replica rknghtandkarr!! I loved seeing those brown on tan seats!! The 83 Trans Am I (briefly) owned had them as well.

I wish I would have stuck it out with that car, it would have made my conversion a lot easier :)

It seems that cars in the Registries are listed by the owners actual name, can you tell us your name or perhaps provide an actual link?

http://knightregistries.com/registry/

Thanks!

Ah, you said go look at the registries, so I just assumed that knightregistries is what you meant. ;) Thanks for the link, I'll be sure to check it out!

Also I reset the language for you (you were actually set to dutch!). For the future you should be able to change it in the profile section. If you have trouble again let me know!
