An actual original Universal KITT used in Season 2, fully restored and functioning, well except for the Turbo Boost, Ejector Seats etc etc... heheheh

So then... not being especially well versed in yank tank engines, what would a Chevy 350 c.i. engine be good for?? :D

I have no idea if this is the original General Lee, but if you were over here, you could hire it. ;)

As for Airwolf, the actual helicopter was converted into an Air Ambulance in Germany, but sadly crashed in 1991, killing it's 3 passengers.

(Back in the days cool was still a cool world ;) )

Ahh man I want that car. How many times did I want to know KITT as a kid. Of course for me Kitt was a person, he could talk, man.

If only I had the cash. This one will end up way more than 40.000 im telling ya.

ahhh david and kitt…

David, ha! With that sophistacated British accent, KITT was far sexier than Mr. Hasselhoff. :p

The prop's nice, but without KITT himself the thing loses most of its appeal, really. :D

As I recall, KITT had an upper-class English accent, or at the very least, one of the American accents so upper-crust it's almost British.

Caine's voice has a noticeable London "twang" to it. Like rueyeet says, the voice was really upper-class American. Those of you who have watched "The Graduate" will recognise the voice of KITT as belonging to the actor who played Benjamin Braddock's dad, William Daniels (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0200122/). William Daniels was born in Brooklyn, New York, far, far away from dear ol' Blighty. Their voices sound similar to an extent, but Daniels' is much softer and more mellow than Caine's. Caine's voice stil has some harsh elements to it.
