About “K.I.T.T.: The White Phantom”

Well I fell in love with the third generation Pontiac Trans Am, due to the 1980's TV series Knight Rider. I caught my first glimpse of Knight Rider in 1995, when I was ten on USA network right before MacGyver in the afternoon. Knight Rider was an extraordinary series which I love to this day even though I was not around to see it originally. KITT was a awesome piece of work with super pursuit mode where he could go 450mph and Turbo Boost where he could leap 50 feet over any obstacles in his way and get 200mpg. If it was not for Knight Rider I would not be where I am today. the series inspired me so much I also plan on building a Knight Rider KITT/KARR replica in the future in my future with something special under the hood. I found my KARR at a North Carolina dealership with only 56,165 miles on it and it came with American Racing ARE rims. It came with all the original documentation minus the original radio and rims. I put about 500 miles in a year and half since I have owned KITT: The White Phantom.
