Q: Who are you?

A: My name is Jarrett and I live in northern Massachusetts. I currently work in the IT Department of a great company called Sentillion that makes software for Healthcare, that was recently aquired by big old Microsoft. I'm 32 years old and a married father. My son's name is Logan, he's three, and yes, he's named after Wolverine. ^_^

Q: What's the point of this website?

A: To cover my ongoing restoration of my 1982 Trans Am primarily, but under the Car Blog I might also talk about video games, movies, tv, and other such topics. Check it out here!

Q: When did you start this site and how long have your owned/been working on your Trans Am/KITT?

A: Well, in February of 2006, after over a decade of searching, I finally found and purchased my dream car, (well, one of them at least, '69 RS/SS Camaro and '70 Challenger, I'm looking at you ;). It was in fantastic condition for both its age and as the perfect Donar Car for transforming a standard '82 Trans Am in KITT. I found it in Pennsylvania on eBay of all places and watched the auction like a hawk for a week. The car had it all: 4x15 Turbocast Rims with Bowling Ball hubcaps, Tan (leather) interior with PMD seats, Crossfire FI, Automatic Transmission, heck it was even black already!

Now, to many, a 28-year-old domestic gas-guzzler might not be their idea of a dream car, but the lines, slopes, and overall look of the 1982 Trans Am has always greatly appealed to me. Even to this day I think that my car stands out and retains a timeless sporty look, one that gets giddy comments from folks all the time. The additional fact that it serves as the basis for the super-car KITT was just the icing on the cake!

Originally, I was going to dub this vehicle the Knight Industries Three Thousand, as I wanted to take the classic KITT and update it with 21'st century tech, but sadly, NBC has now taken that name for their new Mustang (ugh) version of KITT, and so I must come up with a Plan B. Or completely disavow knowledge of the new show; which I have wished I go do most of the time. I have time to mull it over though because the conversion and restoration process will be a long one, and I'm not expecting to be done until around 2020, (unless I get some much needed and very appreciated donations to help speed up the process!!! =D Here's hoping!!!). Make sure to stick around and watch as the transformation process slowly works its magic. Of course, there's always ways you can help speed things up...

Q: Why are you doing this?

A: Because I have a love for both the sleek exterior of the 1982 Trans Am as well as the futuristic look of K.I.T.T.

Q: Do you really think that you won't be done with the restoration until 2020?? Doesn't that seem far off in the distance?

A: Sure it does, but did you see that list?! I'm a realist, and realistically, I think it's going to take at least that long. This isn't an everyday restoration or conversion. So that's actually a best case scenario taking into account donations from good people such as yourself. :)

Q: Do you or will you be selling any conversion or replica parts now or in the future?

A: No. I do my research like everyone else and try to figure out what works for me. If you're interested in the monumental undertaking, then Google around for K.I.T.T. replicar sites, they'll help get you started. This isn't the place for that.

Q: So you must really like "Knight Rider" to be doing all this. Will you have episodes guides and/or reviews on the show that ran from 1982-1986, TV Movie(s), theatrical film(s) or anything else Knight Rider related. Will you be selling any "Knight Rider" related paraphenalia? Will you be able to answer my questions concerning "Knight Rider" in anyway?

A: No, no, and no. If I talk about "Knight Rider" at all it will be in my Car Blog, and it will be mentioned only from a fans perspective. This website (currently) has very little to do with the Universal Studios owned propertey "Knight Rider" outside of the fact that it follows my restoration process of turning a 1982 Pontiac Trans Am into K.I.T.T.
