Re: Kitt's CPU

Perhaps the electrical shock cleared KITT's memory, maybe separate unit from the CPU, but when Michael replaced the CPU unit, the memory still had power and he was able to remember both Michael and Doug? Maybe Bonnie added memory to the replacement CPU unit so KITT would remember his past before the...

Re: Your favorite song on knight rider

Lots of great songs in Knight Rider episodes. Generally I like the 80's pop hit songs, like Laura Branigan's Self Control, Cruel Summer by Banararama, Owner of a Lonely Heart by Yes, Jump by Pointer Sisters, Telefone by Sheena Easton, etc. Someone has even made a channel "Knight Rider FM" which has ...

Re: How I would repair the Franchise lineage and start the new feature film.

4th gen Trans-Am might look pretty nice as a "next gen" KITT, if the original 1982 KITT must be updated:

Played some Forza Motorsport 7 with my Xbox One S, took this photo and slightly edited it to look like 4th gen TA KITT :D

Re: Junk Yard Dog

Maybe KITT's CPU was like computers and control modules in modern cars, they probably expect to see some other control modules and actuators at the end of the CAN bus to work properly?

Re: If Knight Rider had a 5th season and moved to syndication

If Knight Rider continued to this day, I wonder how the music would've changed in the episodes? Maybe for example a "Soul Survivor" hypnotic music in the 2000's would've sounded something like this? :D https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8SYYrUpO-8 (Well, it's trance music, hence a good one for "hypnot...

Re: Kitt at it again

Stumbled upon an episode of "Touched by an Angel" at Youtube, episode called "Birthmarks" from 1996. It had William Daniels as a guest star, character named "Whit", which almost sounds like "KITT" and surprise surprise, there was also character called "Michael". It was funny to listen William Daniel...

Pretty interesting project. Hopefully they'll post more videos as progress is being made. Would be interesting to know what's rattling inside that engine :D
I guess underneath the base car is 1990-1994 Mitsubishi Eclipse / Eagle Talon / Plymouth Laser?

Re: When Will The Hot Wheels Super Elite 1/18 Kitt Be Released?

It's actually huge 1:8th scale - the cars on the top shelf of that display case are 1:18th scale. Given the dimensions of a standard Trans-Am, at 1:8th scale it would be around 61cm (24 inches) in length. It seems like it will be released as a kit in a weekly part-work magazine. It has been trialle...

Cool creation. Always liked your KITT conversions, for example 4th gen Trans-Ams, etc. :)
Used to do photomanipulations for fun years ago but haven't had the time for it for a long time now. Probably my skills have rusted away by now :D
