Got a spare $150,000 lying around?

Then you can buy the fully restored KITT the car from Knight Rider. Although it cannot achieve 300 mph, soar 50 feet in the air or throw smoke bombs, key features of the star car are intact. Perhaps most important, the red scanner light on the nose glows and makes a humming noise.


The car has two working video screens on the dashboard, and the cockpit features buttons that light up in green, yellow and red: ski mode, rocket boost, micro jam, silent mode, oil slick and eject.

There is one catch however, the car can't hold a conversation or drive itself. DAMN! What's the point then? Hmmm...I wonder if William Daniels is looking for any work these days...

Wow! That takes me back...

BTW, when did a left-to-right red light begin to equal artifical intelligence?jea

You could probably rent Hasselhoff for a tenth of that pricetag.

Mark-
Good point! Perhaps it's Battlestar Gallacticas fault. Man that was a crap show.

Chris-
LOL!!!

Of course a worry is once you rent Hasselhoff and he shows up, how do you get him to leave?

That is actually a pretty good price for a Kustom built by the man (George Barris) himself!

Scurvy-
I'll take your word for it! Still KIT would look pretty sweet in the garage.
