Re: Knight Rider
I'm sure there was some sort of bidding war that went on between the car companies to get their product placed. They're not ignorant to the value of getting their product into a weekly show, especially in a starring role. As usual, GM has dropped the ball not only in not securing the part for one of their cars, but also for not having anything in their lineup worthy of filling the Trans Am's shoes. Uh, tires. Whatever.
They placed the new Camaro in the Transformer movie, so it's not like they couldn't have gotten one to the Knight Rider set. The GTO is out of production (again), and what's left? The Solstice? Not even enough room for the Hoff's hair-care products, much less a talking computer. Only other choice would be a Caddy, and that just wouldn't taste right either.
