Knight Rider Classic TV Show
"Knight Rider, a shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who does not exist.
Michael Knight, a young loner on a crusade to champion the cause of the innocent, the helpless, the powerless in a world of criminals who operate above the law."

4 David Stanley from Farmington, New Mexico, USA: Knight Rider is an early 80s show with David Hasselhoff, although the real star of the show was the car, "Kitt", a 3rd generation Pontiac Firebird/Trans-Am.
This 3rd generation Firebird represented the low point of General Motors' performance, technology, and quality control. The engines of that era were choked down with anti-smog/pollution equipment that exceeded the designers' abilities to incorporate those systems into an intergral part of the engine management system. While today, things have improved with anti-smog equipment designed within the operating parameters of the engine management computers which allows the engines to breathe and operate efficiently, the cars of the late 70s/early 80s were choked down into lethargy with horrible performance and crappy gas mileage.
Quality control was also a major problem of that era with GM - the Japanese already had a choke hold on the American auto industry, and GM, Ford, and Chrysler were still trying to incorporate the Asian quality control and manufacturing techniques into their plants. Most cars of that era were plastic and aluminum monstrosities that would fall apart quickly (which my parents can attest bitterly to).
With that said, the show was still entertaining enough although a little silly to watch today.
