Despite the whole K.I.T.T thing, I've never really classed KNIGHT RIDER as being an SF show. For me, its an action-adventure show with a hardware gimmick. But that didn't stop STARLOG from running this feature on the show in February 1984 (issue 79). The almighty Hoff even grabs the cover slot.
The car (not K.A.R.R) schematics are also worth a look. As is the delightful Caroline Monroe from STARCRASH.
