As I’m writing this we’ve got about 12 months left before we head out with our cars on this 80s road trip. That may seem like a long time, but since I decided on exactly what I wanted to get, I knew I’d need as much time as possible. You see I’ve decided to build my own KITT car from Knight Rider. This will be an external only conversion and I won’t be getting into the dash with 3000 LEDs. Even so this isn’t something you can go buy (unless you bring about 17 check books with you). I have officially started my build with what might be the most distinguishable feature of a KITT car, the wheels. I did splurge a bit and get the more rare, but TV show accurate 15″ wheels as opposed to 14″. Now I need to get the hubcaps, the car, the nose, paint, and at least 500 other things.
