Well, he says at the start "Don't try this at home"..... I was expecting some cool stuff that he would do.  But the burnouts seem kinda lame and I think the fastest I saw his speedometer go was 48mph.  Kinda disappointing......

I wouldn't call those burnouts.  I would call them neutral drops, mainly because of the rolling backwards and then the tire starts spinning.

What a disappointment, especially since the dash is pre-programmed to do stuff on it's own.  The dash isn't really responding to what he's doing.  Man, that's a guy with money to burn.

And someone with an expendable income like that, you would think he would upgrade to 350....

It's probably still a 305, which could explain the burnouts.. Or lack thereof. ;)

Some dude about a mile from my house has one of those, its pretty cool and it looks exactly like the real thing.
His tag says "Knight"
I wouldn't want one but it has a certain amount of cool factor to it.

Sorry but over here if you turn up at a show in a " general lee " or a " bullit " people come and have a look, turn up in a KITT and people laugh!
They just dont have the same wooooo factor over here.

Yes i agree the burnout was pretty lame, does he need instructions? or maybe the computer ( programmed by his wife no doubt ) was moaning at him for driving irresponsibly?
