We're not sure how K.I.T.T. didn't see this coming, but Matt Cyr-Knight, a 22-year-old college freshman in Texas had his heart broken when his Knight Rider clone was burglarized last month while attending class at San Antonio College.*

We're not exactly sure how a 1998 Pontiac Trans Am qualifies as a K.I.T.T. K.A.R.R., but  we feel bad for the David Hasselhoff super fan, who has become so engrossed in the defunct 1980's television staple that he's "...gone by the name Knight since age 19 and plans to legally change his last name."

Apparently, Cyr-Knight's car was damaged when a thief pried open the T/A's t-top, thereafter copping K.I.T.T.'s ICE - head unit, amplifier, subwoofer and radar detector. Grand total? $400.

No suspects have been apprehended, but Autoblog has it on good authority that Garthe Knight (pictured) is on the local authorities' short list. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that Cyr-Knight's Hasselhoffmobile was parked adjacent to the "Chance Academic Center." Or perhaps not.

Regardless, with his insurance settlement squared, Cyr-Knight might consider putting a downpayment on this eBay beauty. Or this one. Or this one. Decisions, decisions...
