It was too late to add it to the Upcoming Events section here at the Archive, but this past weekend was host to the Knights of the West Coast car show. This fantastic gathering brings together fans of the series with an exhibition of K.I.T.T. replicas, and was attended this year by some Knight Rider VIPs: creator Glen A. Larson, Stu Phillips (who wrote the music for the theme and half of the first season), and K.I.T.T.’s designer Michael Scheffe. Knight Rider producer Ron Martinez was also on hand to share stories of his first-hand experiences on the series.
The whole thing took place at the Saugus Speedway — Knight Rider‘s spiritual home; it featured in the episodes Knight of the Phoenix, Slammin’ Sammy’s Stunt Show Spectacular and Knights of the Fast Lane, and was also where Stunt Co-ordinator Jack Gill taught David Hasselhoff how to stunt drive for the role of Michael Knight.
