Another TV series that I used to watch when I was a child was “Knight Rider.”
The vehicle used by the show’s main character, Michael Knight, was “an advanced, artificially intelligent and nearly indestructible” “heavily modified” 1982 Pontiac Trans-Am called KITT (for Knight Industries Two Thousand).
As a child, my favorite toy car was a black Hot Wheels Pontiac Trans-Am (most likely the Hot Bird). It could go very fast. Unfortunately, a cousin lost it. I had another Trans-Am, a Matchbox (shown at the right), but it wasn’t as fast. Lately, I was able to buy an official Knight Rider KITT made by Hot Wheels.
