Universal Studios Google Earth

Post by slowride02 » Fri May 11, 2012 3:16 am

I'm wondering if you could see Kitt over the water on Google Earth? It has a scroll that lets you go back to see it via 1989. It is not clear due to the age and I personally dont know where about KITT was in the park but anybody have any idea where to find it?

The fact that the satellites back then are generations removed from the quality we have now makes it impossible to say for sure what we are seeing. the b&w doesn't help either. :)

We did have a thread a number of years back talking about KITTs location. viewtopic.php?p=20078#p20078

At the time I made this map to highlight: http://knightrideronline.com/images/par ... ne2003.jpg

I'd have no idea where to look now...but, I have a 110 photo of KITT at Universal Studios, way back in the day. Had to have been pre-1989, though.

I think this could be a great candidate to use the Gallery feature on this forum! I think it would pretty cool if we all uploaded our images with KITT at Universal to this gallery I've entitled "KITT and I at Universal"

gallery/album.php?album_id=49

This way we create an interesting collection of moments in time where we were all at the same place/location. It becomes this neat archive.

Thanks!

So when did they remove the car from the lot? I was there in 2008 and KITT was nowhere :(
