Fans of the classic Nintendo Entertainment System might be familiar with its Japanese counterpart, the Nintendo Family Computer (aka the Famicom.) If you dig classic ’80s games and classic ’80s cars, you might dig this too.
There are few cars quite as iconic as the late 1970s Pontiac Trans Am Black Bandit, complete with gold eagle wing hood details and a T-Top. As it was the car that Burt Reynolds drove in Smokey and the Bandit, it was certainly the chick magnet back in the day.
Well, it looks like the iPod is now capable of remote controlling your car. Well not your car, but Dave Philipps did manage to control his classic Pontiac GTO with his iPod.
Dave’s totally tricked-out GTO has wireless controls for the ignition, doors, windows, radio, drop top, and even his trunk.
Remember K.I.T.T., the talking computerized car from the old 80’s TV hit Knight Rider? Now K.I.T.T. (actually just a full-scale replica) can be yours if you’re the winning bidder in this eBay auction.
Built by a dedicated fan in Toronto (I guess Canadian’s love David Hasselhoff too,) the car took over 4 years and $40k (CAD) to build.
