Yes, an `83 Trans Am...no laughing :P
This was a really quick build (again). Sorry I dont have more pics. My camera is really bad at capturing light colored cars fro some reason.
This was the kit that started it all for me, almost 30 years ago. It was fun to build, and brought back lots of memories...

It really does look like a KITT...err...starter kit. Actually, wasn't there an episode where they rebuilt KITT and he was white when first put back together? Nice job!

Thanks guys!

Haha, yeah, he was in gray primer though. I forget exactly what happened to him. What was funny though was, while he was in gray primer in the garage, Michael (David Hasslehoff) held up a spray gun and said something to the effect of "the finishing touch." He then proceeds to start painting KITT black, no paint mask, no masking the windows, etc. :D

How 'bout a shot of all three of your 3rd Gen Pontiac F-bodies together, please? ^_^ This one is gorgeous, just like the other two you've shown here, David. :wub:

Very nice build David! I think your photos are very good. My camera won't pick up the shine on white at all. At least your photos show that your model has a good shine on it. I remember when these cars came out and how I disliked the wheels on them. They look like a Turbo T/A wheel with a cheap plastic hub cap on them which is what they basically were. BTW, who was the maker on this kit?
