Thank You Joe! I'm very glad that you do not mind posting the screen shots for me. I was beginning to think that I was burden.

Haven't seen a Comtron truck now in a couple of Episodes...Season 2 with April has very little to none Comtron use.

Season 4-Disc 3-Side A- Hills of Fire

About 5-10 minutes in...

After Bonnie introduces SID to Devon...The scene changes to KITT pulling into a driveway passed 2 male walkers and a telephone pole- PAUSE - beyond the pole, you will see a Comtron trailer-

For those of you into the Locations thread, I see a street sign. :D

Thank You Joe, for posting the Screen Shot for me. Again. I appreciate it.


My_Friend_KITT, your search on Comtron truck just reveals another filming location (posted on the Location thread):
viewtopic.php?f=2&t=11725&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&start=275#p153940
viewtopic.php?f=2&t=11725&p=157183#p157183

The street sign was not clear, but when I watched "Hills of Fire" again, I immediately recognized the building and surrounding cues.

thanks a lot

No problem one man. I enjoy viewing all the locales on that thread.

Hey Joe,

I know that you caught a few shots in Fright Knight already but I may have another one for you. Fright Knight just happened to be the next one on my logical progression through Season 4.

In the background out of KITT'S windows-on the way to Stage 28-the second time-about 25-30 minutes in, I see a blurry image of the Comtron trailer.

As Micheal is passing it, he says- "Then the $20 million dollars he put up for the picture really isn't his own money."

I do not know if this one counts???

Hey Joe,

I know that you have already posted a Comtron delivery truck sighting in Knight of the Rising Sun(Season 4-Disc 3-Side B).
I have spotted the semi-or at least the head(cab) of it.

When Tanika's henchman steals the delivery truck and tries to gain access to the complex...One of the workers walks into O'Brian's office and says that he has rounded up as many men as he could and O'Brian invites them in...The scene changes to the security guard stepping out of his guard house-Pause-the instant the scene is the security guard- That is the semi-truck head(cab).

Thanks Joe for posting the screen shot and giving a verdict. 8)

I spotted the one Joe found in Voo Doo Knight but that ends my Season 4 quest...Now back to the beginning, Season one. Hopefully I will see some there.

Hey Joe, I may have another one...

Has there ever been a Comtron Cargo Van?

Season 2- Goliath

According to my player-1:10:48

Micheal has just beaten Garthe at Craps and dashes out to meet KITT. As KITT and Micheal are pulling away from the Casino, Garthe pursues in the Red convertible. To the right just beyond the fountain, you can see a cargo van?

I haven't recalled whether or not such a vehicle existed. Up to you????

However, at 1:12:44 -Micheal steps out of KITT in the white Garthe suit and in the background you can see (Very Brightly) the Comtron Semi and Trailer.

Please could you post the pics? Thanks Loads

Well, I can't be sure but I don't think there was a Comtron cargo van:

However, this IS a Comtron truck you spotted later in the episode!

A Comtron truck is used a bunch and right at the beginning of Knight Moves.

Hey Joe, I haven't forgotten this wonderful game!!!!

I have 2 for you.

Could you post both of them and give me a verdict? Thank You!!!!

Season 2- Brother's Keeper- 0:12:45

*********************************************************************************************************************************
Season 1- Disc 2- Side B- Forget Me Not

The scene where the would be assasins try to find Micki off of the cliff in the dark and they decide to come back in the daylight, precedes my Comtron Truck sighting. The scene changes to an archway sign reading "International Equestrian Grounds"--Pause--To the right behind the 2nd tree is what I believe to be a Comtron Truck.

It can be more clearly seen later in the episode when Micheal is rushing under the sign to get to the assasin before he can fire a shot at the leader.

Thanks again, Joe!!!!!!!!!!!!

Season 1-Disc 1- Side 1----Good Day at White Rock

Literally at the last minute of the show, Micheal steps out of the Restaurant where Devon gave him an extension on his vacation. After having a seat in KITT, he leans over to kiss the girl. You can see the distinctive colors of a Comtron Truck out KITT'S back window!!!!

One Question Joe???

Did they have 2 Knight Semi trucks during Season one???

I saw a Knight Semi with a little white chess piece further in the back near the ramp and a Knight semi that had the larger gold chess piece near the center on the trailer....

Thanks Joe...Sorry to burden you with sooo much info at the same time...Thank You for posting the screen shots for me on this.

This is just too much. I'm a major fan of the Locations thread, now the Comtron Truck thread? I love it.

So, one day when I'm a rich man, I'll finish my Trans Am conversion, the move on to a Goliath Replica, a black Semi with a chest piece on it and now I have to do a replica Comtron Truck??? LOL.

My_Friend_KITT:

Sorry for the late response! Here's the Comtron truck from "Good Day at White Rock" - amazing you found that!

Image

Also, regarding the semi, to my knowledge, there was only one...the paint scheme it received in "Hearts of Stone" had the smaller Knight chess piece emblem and different striping. It was later changed to the more familiar larger emblem and striping.
