How the hell do you take my favorite show growing up, remake it and use a god da** MUSTANG!
You dont take a show which popularized KITT a 1983 Black Recaro Edition TRANS AM and do a remake and use a POS Mustang.
Im sorry but this has me royally pissed, you at LEAST use a new Camaro, maybe use a Camaro and remake it into a Trans AM, heck in Knight Rider 2000 when KITT was dismantled they used the Pontiac Banshee prototype car for his new chassis, but to take him and turn him into a Mustang, GMS rival is an abomination!

This is what KITT should be

I for one refuse to watch this new version.

Using a new Camaro would work but making it look like a new age Trans Am wouldn't. Why?, cause there is not going to be a new Trans Am therefore GM wouldn't pay them to use one. Ford on the other hand probably paid top dollar to get the now aging new Mustang to be the new KITT. Now that the Challenger and new Camaro are coming out and the Stang which has been around for 4 model years is starting to look dated. What a tradgedy though; using a POS Mustang. I refuse to watch it as well. :cookoo:

The Camaro in transformers was nothing more than a GTO that was built to look like a Camaro and GM endorsed that
its not too much of a Stretch to take a Camaro, make it a KITT with a different nose just like the 80 TA did (it had a different body than a production TA) and name it a T/A edition or something of the like

i was reading forums on this and they made a good point, whats next a Taurus with a General Lee paint job then Dukes of Hazard 09'?
or how about they bring back the show VIPER and use a GT-40 for it?

they screwed up ROYALLY by doing this, they will lose a HUGE part of their orginal fan base, which lets be serious thats what this show is really going to appeal too.
it wont make it past the 1st season if that

Besides the fact that it's not going to be a TA I don't understand why you guys think it won't work. I thought Knight Rider was a agent type guy with a fast kool car with artificial intelligence. So wouldn't any fast kool car work(Vette, Viper, Camaro, Challenger, Charger...etc)?

Ford bought their way into the show using a Mustang. I would have preferred a new Corvette or even the last available Trans Am. The show probably wouldn't have done spectacular no matter what car they used, however.

Like I mentioned and others they could not use an '02 Trans Am because they would not get paid by GM to do so. High bidder gets their car in the show. In this case Ford got it. I agree with the assessment that this show will not do well regardless of vechicle being used.

The intake is the same as well, just routed to a different side.

The ponies only came from tuning.

78-83 FOX Fairmount

It would take a wrecked mustang , a weekend , and basic tools to convert the Fairmount into a mustang

the second (current) was:
Lincolin Ls DEW98

the first mustang was spun off a damned falcon , the second gen was spun off a inbread maverick/pinto

the current stang is the first to come from a platform with a pedigree all other mustangs were spun off crappy 4 door fords ...

Bite your tongue. Challenger=completely worthless garbage

I was a superficial pre-adolescent. I had a 6-ft wide Countach poster on my bedroom wall.




None of this matters. The TV show is going to be lousy. Remakes always are. And this one is not made by Glen Larson (the original show's creator.) He is actually making a Knight Rider movie. NBC found out, and just to spite him, they are rushing the new series to TV. So sans-Larson, check; rushed, poorly done show, check; way wrong car, check.

Yeah it will suck. I will still watch every episode and love it :D

MarkVIII was based on the 89-97 Thunderbird (MN12)

The LS/S type Jag/ Retro Bird /Mustang all come from DEW98
mustang got a live axel (insated of the IRS all other DEW9 have) for cost reasons , the LS rear wont bolt up as the entire rear pan was revised

Yeah the 89-97 Tbirds had the same chassis but the same chassis was modified to be used on other cars or at least loosely based on the old Tbird/M8 chassis.
