Way cool! I remember that show too, it was my fave at the tender age of 8. Where did you find the Kitt-style wheel covers? Are they OEM for the 82?

Looks great! Do you have any plans to do an interior recreation of KITT?

1989 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am (K.I.T.T.)

Last updated Jun 9, 2007  

Photo of a 1989 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am (K.I.T.T.)


I was 5 years old when Knight Rider premiered in 1982, but as soon as I saw that car, I wanted one. Not being able to find a well paying job at ages 5-8, my brothers and I would make the dash out of cardboard and Duct tape and would pretend that that was K.I.T.T. That desire never went away and now that I am older and have a little extra cash, I bought a 1989 Pontiac Formula Firebird and began the conversion. I bought the car back in July 2005 and gutted and restored the interior, modified the exterior of the vehicle and had it painted. It truly is a fun vehicle to drive.
