If I want to see the car I just go over to Volo Auto Museum (almost stole the nose badge, prolly should have). They have quite a few movie and prop cars there, the kid in me thought seeing K.I.T.T in person was pretty cool.
Yep - I owned a 1992 Mustang GT convertible and today I own a Stevens Esprit (as both appeared in the movie). I still cringe when I see both cars trashed - the Mustang shredding bodywork throughout San Francisco and especially the Esprit going over the bridge in slow motion.
I met someone who swears his uncle was the ER doc that saw Richard Gere in New York (or wherever) for the impacted gerbil in the rectum story. He said the gerbil's nails were dipped in coke so when it panicked and clawed away, there was that extra "kick."
Not sure if true, but funny (and revolting) nonetheless.
The guy who owned the Esprit in the PW movie at the time it was filmed used to be in the DC Lotus Ltd group. At one point he was trying to sell it with a huge premium by virtue of it being in the movie, complete with a letter signed by either Gere or Roberts, I don't recall now.
