KITT, Street Hawk or Air Wolf?

edited January 2023 in General Chat
A few nostalgic threads have led me to a puzzling conundrum. Bad 80's television spawned a generation of super veicles, even the A-team van wouldn't have stood a chance agaist them. The ones I remember are:

-KITT (Knight Industries Two Thousand) from KNIGHTRIDER, driven by Michael Kight. Could turbo-boost, oil-slick and ejector-seat. Talked too, (sounded camp). Was bulletproof, which was nice.

-Street Hawk motorcycle, riden by Jesse. Fired lazers and went really fast. Fired out of an advertisment onto the street. Jesse was a bit lame, KITT could've knocked him over.

-Air Wolf helichopter(?), flown by pilots Stringfellow Hawke (really!) and that funny old queen Dom. Could fly really fast with a kind of after-burner, and fire rockets.

Which was the best? My money would be on Air-Wolf! Could it destroy the others? Would "Herbie" (-Goes Banana's) stand a chance? Could Mr "B.A. Baracas" T bend them like a rod of iron? Ultimate machines- there can be only one!

The coolest fictional machine in history (along with the Millenium Falcon) has to be the Bat Mobille. That's what I'd have, but I am obviously a nerd. <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt;

    Will nobody bet on Street Hawk? Lazers, wheelies and a camera with speed counter... it was pretty cool. Did about 300mph and he could still steer it.

    I know the A-Teams van was shit but the best vehicles were the ones they built together from a load of old junk in some warehouse at the end of the programme to defeat all the bad guys.

    B.A. Baracus, Hannibal, Murdoch and Face, what a show. The theme tune was the coolest thing ever 'cos it seriously rocked! The A-Team would have like a match, an acorn and an old roller-skate... go into a garage and weld stuff for two minutes and have crafted a tank from all the rubbish! Brilliant!

    Favourite quotes-

    "I love it when a plan comes together!"

    "I pity the fool..."

    "I ain't gettin' on no plane, SUCKA!" (he always got drugged by a spiked glass of milk).

    Just watched three episodes in one night (including "Fire!" and "Showdown"). All brilliant, but B.A. ("Bad Attitude") Baracus came out with the immortal and confusing line, "I knew he was on the jazz all along...", what the hell does that mean? <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/redface.gif"&gt;

    The winner has to be airwolf really. I just love the way they hide it in a hollowed out mountain in the middle of the desert. Gret show to half watch whilst doing your homework. Stringfellow hawk was driven to drink when the show finished and never worked again which I thought was pretty sad <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/frown.gif"&gt;

    Stuff all of the above. The one and only motor that would kick all of there ass and probably win the current war against afghanistan, is the James bond cars. These feckers had so many gadgets on them it was unreal!!!!

    "Oh what happens if I push this button, well would you look at that a tom-a-hawk missle just flew out the exhaust pipe"

    A mean comeon how many gadgets can one car hold!!!! Nothing to do with the thread but am proving a point!!! <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif"&gt;

    Change the F with the w and you have got me in one :p

    KITT would kick the ass of the James Bond Cars. It`d just fry the circuitry...hmm, silicon burgers.
    A-Team were the best tho. Give em an empty coke can and a 2-by-4 and they`ll kick the ass of any bad guy that comes their way.

    Street Hawk? Never bloody heard of it. What was the name of the series? (or was that it?)
