Local Newspaper Knight Rider Article

Post by Joe Huth » Sun Jan 29, 2012 12:14 pm

One of my local newspapers had a nice little article on Knight Rider last year regarding the location of the screen used cars.

I know these machines aren';t human but its nice to know Airwolf went out as a hero on an ambulance run trying to save the lifes of children.I could have sworn that I saw airwolf being flown by Murdock on the A-teams 5th season intro.

Stef,cars and other vehicles can undergo cosmetic changes when appearing in other tv shows and movies.Look at kift and how many times its been changed over the years such as the chips movie and some tazmanian devil appearence,and even a cop cruiser.I'm not sure if season 5 of the a-team was after airwolf was already off the air or not.

From what I can remember, the helicopter used for the Redwolf (which was rented for the episode Airwolf II) was the one reused in the A-Team episode Judgement Day. As a side note, stock footage of Airwolf appeared in the episode of SeaQuest DSV guest starring William Shatner. It was shown destroying a luxury compound thanks to various editing techniques. :good:

Well, I know at least where one of the KITT cars is located. When my wife and I took an anniversary trip to Gatlinburg, TN a few years ago we dropped by the Star Cars museum. After looking at this photo again (and I didn't remember this from any photos we took while we were there) the fog lights look a little odd. It's almost as though the bumper is missing some trim pieces in that area.

I've been to that very same star car museum in Gatlinburg TN. That car is a custom done by Code One Auto.

Here's the question I have for you Joe: How accurate is the article? There must be SOMETHING in there that makes the historian in you cringe a bit?

Wow, I'd thought it was an original. A close look at it in person seeing how faded and worn the interior is you'd think it'd be about 30 years old by now. Was it a custom from the 80s?

I don't never like Airwolf.. Cause this series did something politics content and etc.

Michael Knight a Hero! Airwolf was so suck series..
This series not popular as much as Knight Rider..

I agree it was no knight rider but airwolf was a pretty good show all its own.A top secret helicopter is stollen at a test area by some terrorist.When its recovered its used in missions that the government can't be associated with in exchange for information leading to the recovery of a prisoner of war that the government gave up on.Just so happens to be the new choppers pilot's brother.

doesn't The Hoff still own one of the original K.I.T.T.'s? I remember he showed up as the guest host on Monday Night Raw a few years ago & drove out in K.I.T.T. (might not have been his though)

Actually I was going through my clips and I have one of David saying after Knight Ridera woman was telling David about how much his music was a hit in austria so David had a replica made and flew down there.He had that in storage and had it restored for the Gumball 3000.He doesn't own a screen used kitt.Maybe the 2 he was given while married to Catherine during the shows run but that's all.

I know the Keswick museum closed down a while back. Don't know what happened to the car... Sold off I guess.
