Manic Monday - Kit

This Week's Theme: Kit
MM Headquarters ~ Previous MMs

KITT, short for "Knight Industries Two Thousand"

I know there's an extra T in there, but when I saw this week's theme this car immediately popped into my head. I LOVED this show growing up. I remember Michael Knight played by David Hasselhoff very well! When I was a kid I remember playing Knight Rider in the back yard. We'd pretend KITT would save us from any given situation, just as KITT did in the show Knight Rider!

Facts you might or might not know about KITT:

*KITT was a very witty and sarcastic form of artificial intelligence. This car could actually carry on conversations with Michael.
*KITT could drive himself when Michael was otherwise engaged, keeping in contact via a wrist communicator or "comlink" (a modified LCD AM radio watch).
* KITT's Pontiac Trans AM chasis was reinforced with "Wilton Knight's revolutionary Molecular Bonded Shell" which was resistant to most weapons.
*KITT could accelerate to speeds nearly 300 mph.
*KITT was fueled by liquid hydrogen.
*KITT had the ability to print money.
*KITT's speech is reflected in a 'voice modulator' located above the customised steering wheel.
*KITT had the the ability to generate electical charge.

Now I leave you with an amazing tribute to the car KITT which I absolutely adored!

Jamie said...

The 80s ladies seem to have a fondness for verbose automobiles.

I saw this car at Universal Studios...but I never actually watched the television show....

Neila said...

My husband was a big fan of this show. When I asked him what he thought of when he heard the word Kit, this is immediately what popped out of his mouth. I, on the other hand, chose Kit Kats!

Gattina said...

That was an AWESOME car!!! I love stuff that goes fast and can spin the tires and leave rubber! I still want a Corvette, darn it!

I had a rough time figuring this one out, but, my MM post is up and running now.

peace, Villager

Everyone else seems to have thought of Kitt, from Nightrider. I sat on my couch with a dumb look on my face for fifteen minutes and never came up with a decent post. I'm jealous. LOL!
