The Greatest Car of 80's TV and Film

There were loads of iconic cars in 80's TV and Film - I had a little trip down back to the future with a little graphic that Vertu Lease Cars have put together. Some were cool like The DeLorean from Back to the Future and The General Lee from Dukes of Hazzard.  Some were comedy gold like Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters or The Reliant Regal Supervan from Only fools and Horses.

A while ago I posted about my favourite TV shows from when I was a kid in the 80's (you can read here). In that list was a show that happened to revolve around a car that for me is the greatest of all. I am of course talking about the Knight Industries Two Thousand or KITT for short from the eternal classic, Knight Rider.

The modified jet black Pontiac Trans Am is not only the coolest looking car of all time but is chock full of all manor of upgrades and gadgets. It was near indestructable, often surviving gunfire, explosions and high-speed chases. KITT also had a AI mind of it's own and the freaking thing could talk (nothing is as cool as a talking car). Not forgetting the front mounted scanner that made an often imitated (at least by me as a child) vwoom-vwoom sound.

On top of all that KITT was a crime fighter who helped Michael Knight (played by the coolest man of the 80's, David Hasselhoff) fight all manner of bad guys. There was no situation that Michael Knight and KITT couldn't sort out.

If this wasn't enough Knight Rider also had the coolest theme tune EVER!

Were you a fan of Knight Rider? Are there any Cars from 80's TV or film that you think are better than KITT?

Well, thats all for now.


This is a collaborative post.
