“Knight Rider Fan Creates the Most Accurate Replica K.I.T.T. Car

Chris Blasius from Olmsted Falls, Ohio, Spent over 2.5 years, 2000 hours & $50,000 dollars building the most accurate restoration of a Knight Rider KITT replica Car.

I asked Chris What was the motivation that drove you to do all that work. he said “I told my parents at the age of 6, that I will own KITT someday. I actually begged them to buy me a new 82 trans am, and save it for me, until I could drive, because they were still new then. They said I would grow out of it… but I never did.”

Chris’s ultimate dream for the car, would be to have a picture taken with David Hasselhoff with the car and himself, and to put that as his Facebook profile picture forever.”

“Back in 1994, I was working for the famous Silicon Valley startup General Magic. One night, my team and I decided to go into the local computer store (Incredible Universe?) in Palo Alto California and watch people buying computers. At the time, I considered the results of this shoot boring and put the Beta SP videotape in my archive. But today, all these years later, it is history for sure. All of my viewers who were around at that time will remember what computers and printers and keyboards and screens were like and how excited we were just to have a bit more memory. For my younger viewers, I do hope that this seems like ancient history, which in a way, it is. I particularly like the scene where the customer sees early video on a computer screen. I can still remember the thrill at seeing that moving image with sound coming over the Internet.”

“We’ve all heard the pre-flight safety speech a million times. There’s some stuff we should know about airline safety, but they’re not telling us. I spoke to an active commercial pilot and did some research to provide some more interesting and relevant info you should be getting before you fly.

Just a little travel-related info-tainment for the summer. Enjoy.”
