For Sale: KITT, Slightly Used

The Knight Industries Two Thousand could be yours:

It's literally impossible to underestimate the power that KITT can have on an individual. Knight Rider star David Hasselhoff wouldn't be where he is today without the help of KITT, for example - it was KITT that made Princess Diana want to shag David Hasselhoff, it was KITT who kickstarted the David Hasselhoff musical and it was KITT who bought up all the copies of Jump In My Car to save David Hasselhoff from yet another failed attempt at a musical career. So if KITT can do that for someone like David Hasselhoff, imagine what it could do for whoever buys KITT in this sale.

As for the rest of us - the ones who don't have $150,000 to spend - there's a much cheaper way to feel like David Hasselhoff. True, it involves drunkenly wetting yourself in an airport at 7am, but rather that than waking up knowing you've spent $150,000 on a non-driveable 25-year-old car just because it's got a flashing red light on the front, eh?
-- Hey Geeks! Buy KITT From Knight Rider!

Mercury News adds, "Most of the buttons don't do anything, Verhoek said. Nor can the car hold a conversation, or drive itself."

I'm interested in what he means by "most" of the buttons don't do anything.

I guess he's talking about the AC. That or they left the ejection seat hooked up...

My understanding is that when working with Hasselhoff, an ejection seat is a technical imperative.
