One Cool Kitt

One Cool Kitt

TransAm? Check. "Don't Hassle the Hoff" T-shirt? Check. Michael Knight action figure? Double check. Congratulations, you're well on your way to being a Knight Rider super fan. If you really want to show off your love for the 1984 series, there's one gadget you'll need for your new car: Mio's Knight Rider themed GPS system. The $270-system features turn-by-turn directions given by William Daniels, who provided the original voice for KITT.

Not only will you not get lost, but you can imagine yourself as Michael Knight, a young loner on a crusade to champion the cause of the innocent, the helpless, the powerless, in an unsure world where finding your way around town is always a mystery. Here's a make believe conversation you could have:

Kitt: Hello Michael, where do you want to go today?
Michael Knight: I could really use a burrito right now. Can you find me the nearest Taco Bell?
Kitt: Right away, Michael.

Try not to get carried away with the authenticity. While the new gadget does give directions, it won't drive the car for you. The
system has yet to make its debut, but we'll keep you posted. Would you be interested in adding KITT-themed kitsch to your car? [Autoblog]
