Knight Rider Replica

A shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who does not exist......

"I want that car..."

So began a dream I've had since I was 9. In the years leading up to my license, KITT was the most popular car in the world, able to do just about anything, and looking pretty damn cool in the process! Thanks to years of dreaming, months of research and nearly 2 years of searching I found a 1982 Trans Am in Toronto in 2003 that was identical to the car used in the pilot "Knight of the Phoenix". Best of all it had low miles and no rust. I spent the next 7 years enjoying the 'Michael Long car' and saving for conversion parts. The conversion resembles season 3/4 with a 1 TV dash, dual fog lights, gullwing steering wheel, voice modulator (yes it 'talks'!) and console buttons for operating accessories. The ability to turbo boost has yet to be developed.....but voice recognition is already used in some replicas and will be added to mine in the future. More pics of my car HERE to see pics of the car.

The largest county fair in Indiana and third largest in the US, the 9 day Elkhart County 4H Fair has been an area tradition for years. My car was asked to be in the parade, which is a thrill. Click the banner for more info.

Patricia McPherson (Bonnie from Knight Rider) is leading the fight to help preserve the Ballona Wetlands in Southern California, which are subject to project development. Because this area is highly saturated with harmful gases, it would mean numerous long term effects on the individuals that would commute and work in that area. Trapped gases can eventually reach the surface, causing explosions. Developers have succeeded in creating a plan to avoid post-development involvement in case of a disaster. This area will suffer tremendously from the increase in traffic, not to mention the dangers of subjecting individuals to the unhealthy environment. It is best left alone, and your help will ensure that the area remains a safer place for wildlife and mankind. To learn more about the science behind it, click HERE.
