TFA is wrong. The original KITT was the Knight Industries Two Thousand.

I'm only slightly ashamed to admit that I'd like to have a good KITT replica.
 
2013-08-24 04:28:49 PM  
I would drive one of those in a heartbeat.

Love how the car doesn't move when he turns the steering wheel.

Yeah steering gear boxes.

I didn't see any mention of pursuit mode.

I dont want to be the one to point this out but I am pretty sure that car's computer was gay.

Pursuit mode was just a button. I want to see KITT the Transformer.

This sort of obsessive fandom should be re-categorized as a type of mental (and social) retardation.

He was a doctor on a show that was pretty gay.

Too bad he accidentally made KARR instead.

He didn't spend any of your money, did he? Everyone has a hobby.

I shudder to think what you might spend large sums of money on. Anybody who opens fire like you just did is either trolling, lying, or the most boring person on the planet.

Why did '80s TV shows have such epic theme songs? Is it like C64 video games? To detract from the content?

He's owned 15 or 16 3rd generation Firebirds?

They must be more of a piece of crap than I thought.

C64 games often had awesome music because it had an awesome soundchip.

If it has turbo boost and can jump over semi's I'll buy it from him.

Ringing endorsement right there.

Apart from the nose scanner light and the speedometer, nothing else actually works.
 
2013-08-25 12:58:37 AM  
So he put a pulsing light on the front of a Trans Am?

I never watched that show.

Call me when someone makes a replica of the Mach V,  Oh wait, it's already been done.  Let me know when they put the blueprints into the windshield.

One, wasn't the original an automatic transmission?

Two, he looks mighty cramped in there.

Three, if he's really dedicated, he'll put some more work in that engine.  It's supposed to sound like a turbine engine, not the General Lee after a dive in the river.
