What do you think? Do you watch The Goldbergs? Were you a fan of Knight Rider in the ’80s?
Big fan of Knight Rider. Even have my own KITT. I wonder who this KITT belongs to.
Post some pictures of yours! I always love seeing replicas. I once considered buying one of the prop cars used when KITT was shown driving by itself. There was an auto museum in Florida that went out of business a decade or so back and was selling off their collection that included this car as well as a mint DeLorean.
I’m not only a fan and proud Goldnerd but you might say I also have first hand knowledge of this episode and just about all things Knight Rider today. @KRCompanion
I saw your name in the credits! Who’s KITT replica is that? I’ve rarely seen any with the 3 fog lights like on the season 1 KITT.
