The song was also featured in yet another Season 3 episode, "Dead of Knight". So there was a lot of Michael Jackson activity in the 1984-produced half of Season 3.

Great picture!
That must have been the Jacksons "Victory" album period, where all the six brothers made their last album together.

Its pretty sad whats happened this past month.
We all grew up with Knight Rider in the 80s, along with MJ, Madonna, Prince and what have you not!

The period of 1982 onwards was an amazing time for music and for Knight Rider fans.

Such great memories.

Long live MJ, the king.

Looks like an alternate shot from that photo shoot was included in the program from the memorial service:

I remember that picture of Michael when he was sitting in the car KITT, because there is more that the photos of Michael Jackson and the car KITT, but I can not find the photos on the Internet, because it is very difficult...

Only the fans of MJ is that it has the photos of Michael and KITT. It is true.

Thanks to a tip from Jorge Rosas in KRO's News Item (http://knightrideronline.com/news/2009/07/michael_jackson_and_kitt.php), we have confirmation that the shot originated in the programme for the Jacksons' Victory Tour in 1984! I have a copy of the programme winging its way to me, expect high-res scans of the attached shots (and hopefully some more info about them) very soon!

In that pic that shows all 6 cars lined up in a row. The car in the back can't be a convertable KITT since the shoot was done before season 4, but it looks like it is???

Looking at the picture, I'd say the last car is a black Daytona Spyder, as it has the split chrome bumper, and trademark sloping front end for the concealed headlights, just like the red one does at the front. :good:

Welcome aboard the Knight 2000.

Thank you. What's all this, it looks like Darth Vader's bathroom?

Jorge, let me be the first to say your help is very much appreciated! The origins of that photo have remained a mystery for years! Thanks!

The Michael Jackson and brothers the Jackson 5 were doing a photoshop for a tour and the cars it was lent and the photo was taken from the Parks of state of California in the Beach of state of Leo Carrillo in Malibu, 1984. :wink:
