If Knight Rider had been made in the 1970's...

...this would have been KITT:

How to buy a '71-73 Mustang:

Rule #2: No classic car dealer is ever innocent; thus, they are all guilty.

The Lincoln Futura? Nah.

I take it you mean the Batmobile from the Tim Burton films. I can see that, definitely - but I dare say it steals it's styling from classic muscle cars rather than the reverse Big Grin

Looks Cool enough

"Knight Rider" would never have been succesful in the 70s, the touchy-feely "sensitive yet macho" guy decade.
The 80s was the "Hardware" decade. Think of all the movies and TV shows that were based around machinery and weapons from the eighties...like Knight Rider.

That Vette looks like the Batmobile from the 70s cartoons.

Actually, that *could* be as new as an '82 'Vette - since K.I.T.T. was an '82 Trans Am, I suppose it could've gone either way - but I get what you're saying... that would've been pretty cool, too. Wink

But, Kit's right about the '80s being the "hardware" decade - pretty much everything was 'techie' in some fashion or manner... Blue Thunder, Airwolf, the Transformers, et al. "Sensitive, macho guy era of the '70s," I'm not entirely buying that - I don't recall the Bandit being all 'that' sensitive as he was leading Buford T. Justice around the countryside destroying his car(s).


... well... except for maybe the Duke Boys. rofl

I'm just glad The Dukes of Hazzard originally came out in the '80s. Could you imagine the General Lee as a hopped-up Dodge Stratus if it had come out in the '00s like the movie? (((shudder)))

That picture is totally channelling the first Tim Burton Batmobile - draw some batfins on that sucker and squint... yeah... totally seeing that.

Sorry a little off-thread but -
Driving my sister's brand new 82 HO Mustang, I hooked up with an new '82 Vette "cross fie injection" car on the highway. I pulled him hard on the run to about 85-90 and he tried to keep up but the Vette was gutless over 90. I revved that 302 2bbl HO hard in 3rd then shifing into that long-legged 4th gear but still pulled away respectfully up to about 120. I drove from OKC to Tulsa running both CB radio and radar detector and made the distance of approx 90 miles in 56 minutes. We had to slow down twice, once for traffic and other meeting Oklahoma Highway Patrol. Those were the days... Smile Would not begin to try that again with the OHP's newer technology - unless of course I was driving one of their cars...!!!!!!!!

BTW the "speed limit" was 55 I think back then!!!
