Honestly, how many of us have not grown up on a diet of Knight Rider episodes? At one time K.I.T.T was the only thing I used to watch on tv...one of my favorite episodes being "K.I.T.T. vs K.A.R.R."

If you lusted after this car as a child, well...heres your chance to buy an example:

1. Knight Rider Auction

2. Knight Rider Restoration Project

My best car TV Show ever..... Grew up watching Knight Rider as a kid in Dubai and KR was the talk o the day in school too. Why at one point of time I remember buying just Pontiac Trans Ams as my dinky cars.

Hey Vtec11 they did show cut half hour episodes on DD years ago when actually they are all one hour episodes. Star World showed all 4 seasons recently atleast 5 times again and again and I watched everyone of them.

I have pictures o the real Knight Rider car at Universal Studios in the US. Shall find them and put them up.

Thanks, Dippy... I remember now. Man, movies back then made 2000 look like it was gonna be the space age... every funky thing had a 2000 appended to its name.

Dunno about that, but "Street Hawk" replaced it on TV
