SUPER PURSUIT MODE KNIGHT RIDER PROJECT

For the fans of Knight Rider of the 80’s,
there is more than one “holy grail” when it comes to star cars. First there was the “pilot” KITT, then the 2 TV dash cars with the new nose, then there came the 1 TV KITT, the two tone silver and black KARR with orange/yellow scanner, and in the last season there was the Super Pursuit Mode aka transformer KITT and the magic convertible.
In the age of transformer cartoons and toys, the SPM version with vents and wind wings popping out all over was a kids dream. Well, Jennifer has taken up the challenge, with the help of the Star car central.com team. Jay Ohrburg kindly allowed all of the knight Rider fans to crawl all over his static replica (meaning, the stuff doesn’t go in and out mechanically) that my pal Jack in Texas spent months building from scratch all the panels and SPM add ons for Jay.
and Brian U. was up to the challenge to do the design for Jennifer. Now all she has to do is build it and pay for it!

Jennifer is a long time KITT fan, in fact she owned one before, and had to sell it years ago, but now she has the fever again to get her SPM car. I am just glad she is going to build it (and pay for it!) so I don’t have to!


Nate Truman and Jennifer confer on details comparing her “stunt KITT” with the SPM replica of Jay Ohrburg. Lots to do, but I think she is going to do it!

KNIGHTS OF THE WEST COAST

Once the word got out that Jen Brian and Nate were going to crawl over the SPM car for measurements, all the Knights of the West Coast decided to stop by!

After we all got our fill of the SPM car, we looked around the place and found a few other starcar gems sitting around!
This is Dennis, and he has “inked” his allegiance to KITT and the General Lee on his arms! Now that’s fan dedication! He was just a kid when he met Jen and sat on her first KITT years ago. Vintage TV bringing people together. Awww.
🙂


Of course my roots are with Batman, so I headed for the replica Batbike or Batcycle in the back corner for a photo op! Holy no Bat symbols!

After a twilight zone moment we reliazed that all the star car guys were a stones throw from Jay’s secret hidding place when we stopped for lunch coming home from Charger Steve’s show a few weeks earlier, we had a good lunch and talked Knight Rider and SPM over cheeseburgers. No, Brian did not put a french fry up his nose, but he almost turned down a chance to drive Jen’s KITT home! With a little encouragment from Nate, Brian got behind the wheel. I think the photo tells the rest of the story!

I look forward to driving Jen’s KITT and hitting the SPM button in 2010? Stay tuned starcar fans….
