David Hasselhoff really, really likes KITT from Knight Rider. As well he should – not only did he co-star in the TV show with the car, but the Pontiac was totally awesome as it smashed walls and jumped things and went bleep and bloop. But if you never understood why it was so great, check this out.
Normally, I'd scoff at the thought of a racing driver blaming his car, but in Funny Or Die's remake of "Knight Rider," KITT is more than a little whiny and Dale Earnhardt Jr. is no threat to hassling The Hoff.
I'm eagerly awaiting for Lego to release the official Back to the Future sets—note to Billund: you should make the RC model too—but I want more. I want all my childhood remade using Danish bricks (never mind that most of my childhood was actually made of Lego bricks). I really want all the sets above to be official:…
Thanks to my adventurous parents, the first time I saw Knight Rider, I was a kindergartener in Mexico. The year was 1991, I was almost five, and while back then I didn't realize how funny a Spanish-speaking car really is, I was fascinated by that black Trans Am.
Craigslist has done it again. Now be honest. You know you've harbored a secret (or not-so-secret) Knight Rider fantasy since you first saw that awesome talking Trans-Am back in the '80s. Now, your fantasy can come to fruition, because someone's selling a KITT replica.
If you're a child of the early '80s, there are two cars that sprung from the cathode TV sets and permanently lodged in your little brain. One was the General Lee, and the other was K.I.T.T. — which can now be yours for the right price.
Automobile associate editor and former Jalopnik intern Eric Tingwall changes the voice on the very-limited-edition 2010 Mini Cooper Camden's gimmicky "Mission Control" feature, turning it into KITT from Knight Rider. Don't touch that non-existent turbo boost, Tingwall!
It's been 28 years since KITT had a successful show. In that time his position in popular culture has slipped from hero to laughing stock, making increasingly minor appearances to fuel his hamburger habit. Evidently, he misses Michael too.
The Four Dorkmen of the Carpocalypse are at it again, this time taking their "girlfriends" for a ride in a Rocky Mountain sunset, posing with satellite dishes and adding a Decepticon to the collection.
What is it with comp sci kids and their college dorms? Hacking the windows to serve as a lo-res display probably goes back to the earliest days of the integrated circuit.
My stash of DOTSBE photos includes many from Denver, and so I'm able to post two Mile High Mavericks today!
This may be the first time we've seen the old n' trusted Trans Am-based KITT and the new n' busted Mustang GT500KR-based KITT together at the same time. Seems like it's PSA time.
