My K.I.T.T. in press, radio & TV

I get quite a lot of emails, requests or appreciation for my replica. From time to time even the press is interested in my little hobby or the car is used for filming or TV shows. At this point I would like to compile a small overview of press, radio and TV articles that have dealt with my K.I.T.T. replica.

You work for a magazine, newspaper, radio or TV station and want to create a report about my hobby or need K.I.T.T. for a TV show in Germany?
