I'll defintly buy it

Do you plan, of doing something like that for KRO8 in the futur? Also It would be really cool to have a knight3000 owner's manual like you did with the 2000 and top of the top would be an engraved vinyl portfolio like the one that come with the shelby but with the KR logo

Sounds liek an amazing book, really excited by the thought of it, was wondering...with all the different series and stories behind them, would you consider doing an OPUS style book? Probably the only way of doing something as big and expansive as Knight Rider justice....love to hear your thoughts on that.

Hey guys -

Just a quick update. The book is slowly but surely coming together. Season 3-4 producer Burton Armus has been interviewed, and there's a number more in the pipeline! We will announce those once the interviews are done.

We also have something really cool - a special section with an interview from the company who made the original KNIGHT license plates for the series, complete with BUILD photos!

Much more to come soon!

Joe

Good luck with your book.

Your interviews should help you with filming locations, if you thought of it. I don’t know if you got to interview Charles Napier before he passed away, but that was an opportunity for the “House Of The Rising Sun” location and to see some cast photos taken there. Of course there are others that may remember, don’t let an opportunity slip by. Lance LeGault or Phyllis Davis just might have ComTron for you.

Hey guys,

The book is coming along nicely. As we stand now, we are at 400 pages. Once we finish interviews and add pictures, it will probably be 450-475 pages, but I will let you know. We also have 65 photos for the book, with hopefully more coming.

The title of the book will be....

KNIGHT RIDER: 30 Years of a Lone Crusader and His Talking Car

Happy Holidays! More updates soon...until then, I will leave you with this...yes these are real license plates!

After not stopping in at KRO for a while, what an awesome surprise to see a new book coming from you. I'll definitely be buying a copy to add to your other two books.

Can't wait for the book!

Firstly, this book is looking amazing! I love the format and the angle. It's mind boggling that you are interviewing individual episode guest stars for each and every episode. I can't even imagine what kind of an undertaking it has been for you guys. I've never been much of a behind the scenes guy but this sounds truly special. Could we get a sneak peek or 2 of these interviews? An interview with Ann Turkel! Are you kidding me? I'm geeking out!

Secondly, I sincerely hope you'll put it out in hardcover (or at least have a hardcover edition). It would be awesome if it had one of those hard cover sleeves as well. I understand you want to hit a reasonable price point in order to get the most sales but I'm sure there are many of us who will fling sweaty wads of cash at you for a premium hardbound version!

Keep up the good work. I'm looking forward to picking one up.

THIS JUST IN!

After numerous requests from you guys and an analysis of costs, we are pleased to announce that Knight Rider: 30 Years of a Lone Crusader and His Talking Car will be released in a limited edition hardback version AND a regular paperback version!

The hardback version, with a sleeve, will still be priced under $50...hopefully closer to $40. It's still looking like the book will top out around 450 pages. As for a release date, we are hoping for the June-July range.

Thanks!
Joe and David

We can see the "light at the end of the tunnel"! Final interviews are being conducted, book formatting and editing is taking place. Along with everything else, there will also be a detailed analysis of early script variations for each episode. We are trying to keep the book to 450-475 pages of nearly ALL NEW material....won't be much longer!

Just thought id "bump" this topic since its pretty major stuff.

Im really excited about this book, I already have KRL and KRC books, and i would never turn down another book :)

How's it coming along? Any updates on the price and release date?
Also im in the Uk, so how much will postage be etc?
And where will we be able to purchase the book?

Sorry for the lots of questions, I ask a lot when im excited!
