“People need heroes. People need dads.”
– David Hasselhoff, I Love 1983, BBC Television
It’s Father’s Day this weekend, a holiday that fits well with the core family values at the heart of the show. The series was filled with father figures and good role models, from Wilton Knight and Devon Miles, to Michael Knight himself. Give him Knight Rider for Father’s Day: there is no better way to say thanks to the men who made a difference.
Here are some Father’s Day gift ideas for the Knight Rider fan…
Knight Rider: 30 Years of a Lone Crusader and His Talking Car
Knight Rider – 30 Years of a Lone Crusader and His Talking Car is an amazing journey through the world of the Knight Rider as told by the cast and crew members who were there! This book contains over 60 brand new interviews and over 75 never before seen photographs. This is the ultimate guide to celebrate 30 years of Knight Rider! It retails at $39.95, although Amazon are currently listing it at $35.39!
The Stu Phillips Scores: Knight Rider (Original Television Soundtrack)
What Knight Rider fan doesn’t get chills listening to the soundtracks of their favourite episodes? Now, remastered in stereo, you can listen to a collection of some of the best Stu Phillips scores from the first season, including the Pilot Episode, Trust Doesn’t Rust, Not a Drop to Drink, Forget Me Not and Inside Out. The CD is pretty pricey, but Amazon now offer digital downloads.
Diamond Select Toys Knight Rider: “Knight” License Plate Replica
A Diamond Select Release. This stamped-metal “KNIGHT” license plate is a replica of K.I.T.T.’s plate from the show, identifying any car as Knight Industries property — and identifying yourself as a true Knight Rider fan. This retails at $34.99, but is currently half-price at Amazon!
American Classics Men’s Knight Rider Kitt Happens T-Shirt
Ties are the traditional Father’s Day gift, but since there aren’t any Knight Rider ties currently on the market, why not go with a Knight Rider t-shirt! There are many different designs to choose from, featuring different logos, David Hasselhoff, K.I.T.T., and different slogans (‘K.I.T.T. Happens’, ‘Keep Your Scanners Peeled’). T-shirts tend to average between $17 – $20.
Knight Rider on DVD
Why not complete his collection of Knight Rider episodes on DVD! Seasons are available separately, and prices have fallen to average approximately $17, but there is also The Complete Series Collection which comes in a fantastic box with a scanner and sound effects!
Alternatively, have a look around our stores (if you are outside of the United States, many of these products are also available to UK and Germany consumers). It can be tough finding that perfect gift year after year, but if he’s a fan he’d love something Knight Rider-related.
