The 1982 Pontiac Firebird

Ever since I was young boy, I’ve wanted this car thanks to Knight Rider’s K.I.T.T., and this superb dealership video totally sells it.

For me, it’s nearly impossible to watch the Trans-Am model without also hearing the distinctive engine sounds from K.I.T.T. and watching the car hug those bends invokes a very potent sense of nostalgia that I think will be with me for life.
