While I can’t pinpoint the exact moment, I’m still fairly sure that my current love affair with cars started with a little show from the 80s called “Knight Rider”.
I sat in front of my television awe-struck by the adventures of a lone man armed with his high-tech talking car “K.I.T.T.” saving people in distress while doing awesome stunts and an ever-poofy afro.
Many will tell you that David Hasselhoff AKA “The Hoff” was the star of the show but we all know it was always K.I.T.T. That car captured the imagination of millions of kids every week including me.
That’s why I was extra hyped to see that the latest visitor to Jay Leno’s garage is one of the K.I.T.T. cars. This isn’t a replica or re-make, but one of only five surviving cars actually used on the show.
If you were a Knight Rider fan then you’ll definitely want to check out the full episode below.
