A company offering to build KI3T replicas?

honestly in my opinion, i think its a scam

however doing some research and tracking the number a guy from youtube built some KI3T replicas: http://www.youtube.com/user/Knightman07

I saw that the other day....interesting that the seller includes pictures of the show car and not of the actual car for sale.

A conservative estimate, using his information, is that this guy would make $15,000 in profit if he were to sell it at his price.

So they are using the picture we all saw that leaked to the community before the kr08 2 hour movie about kitt being a mustang and then the other 2 pics are from the kr festival so we know that he didn't just surf online for some pics and post a way to get 45 grand and blow town.

I've got, roughly, $26-27,000 in my car...that's including the cost of the car. Now I did all the labor myself (minus paint on the hood) so the cost of labor could add up, but only to about $1500.
If this guy can find a sucker, he'll be rollin'. Hell I'll sell KI3T's for $30 grand!

The seller indianahoop has NO feedback as a seller AND he is not using actual pictures of his car for sale. :roll:
This has scam written all over it.

From the auction
This auction comes with the car, and the service to completely convert it into a replica of the Knight Rider 3000.


Well which is it? The converted Knight 3000 or a normal Mustang?
and the service to completely convert
:?:

I e-mailed him...
"This is basically a build to order car. I know a guy who has a Knight 3000 in Texas named Matt who is almost done with his knight 3000." haha
Here's his website: http://www.dynamicautorestoration.com/home.html
Apparently, he's a subscriber of mine on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/user/knightman07

I sent him a email and this is what he sent me.
Dear crow1998,

Hello, Thanks for your interests no we don't have the car once you buy the car we will go get the Mustang and do the conversation. We have two other knight rider 2000's. Just offering something new, let me know if I can answer anymore of your questions I would be more than happy too. THe pictures just show what it will look like. If you want you can to on youtube and type in knightman07


- indianahoop

To me it sounds like the $40,000 is to convert the car that you give him.

It looks like he's a subscriber of mine as well.
He contacted me sometime ago wanting to buy everything I offered and then said he would have to wait to get the money together.
I guess this is what he meant.
I guess when he finds someone willing to spend that much money he will get a voice orb from me and install it in the car.
Little does he know I will not be selling him ANY of my products.
I make these parts for the KR community NOT so other folks can make a quick buck at the expense and excitement of others.

I don't sell to KR conversion company's or anybody trying to do a small business startup.

I wonder how he is going to offer a Interactive Voice Orb without me selling him one. :lol:

Hey Taoworm....Thanks for looking out for the Knight Rider fans.I know alot of guys in your position would have just sold this guy a orb.If this guy is charging that much money on top of you supplying a car well then he had better also be transplanting a supercharged 5.4 motor also.Seeing that is the motor in a GT500KR.This guy apparently is looking to make some easy money at the expense of some die-hard fans.I cant imagine anyone going to this guy,supplying a car and giving him over 40,000.00 to do a replica. :kitt: :karr:

Same guy, but this time he allegedly swindled $60,000USD from a fellow KR brother over at the registries.
