    1201 appears to be the return date, December 1st (presumably for some kind of inspection, because it went back out on the same date). It had only 22 miles when they first started using it, so it was practically factory new when they started using it.

    Regarding the trailer all I know is, that these are now and were even then relatively rare to come by. Some time back I saw a HUeye video of a Knight Rider car meet in the US, where some people came by with a big rig just like the General with a trailer. Don't pin me down on it, but as you described the last known looks of it, It reminded me of this big rig from that car meet. The owner said that he was lucky to find a trailer of this type, because they are so rare. I can't recollect all of it, but maybe there is a pointer in the right direction somewhere in it. Maybe I am confusing something all together, too. I wish you to reach your goal, greetings from Germany.

    It's funny how they would be on back of a semi while driving yet no one jerked or felt the trucks motion hahaha that was great man 😂.we tried it on the back of a u-haul and it's so hard to stay standing still while truck was in motion .

    using the trailer production number California lost track of it or they wouldnt search a national database? Think working for you guys would be an awesome experience, just tracking items down, locating them physically, and restoring them to their glory.

There is not much information one had at that time .. Thank you I traveled for the video and all that it means to do this. Hopefully there will be more initiatives for other series .. And one day have an exclusive museum of cars and vehicles from series of the 70/80 / 90..✌🏻👏👏👏❤️🇨🇱👍🏼

    It was a fun car to drive It PLATES that came random from the DMV was KMK 782 . I told people it stood off Kitt and Michael Knight. Car was built in July of 1982 I would tell them .It made for a good story. I had got lost in the Quad Cities late on night and drove through a gang street war . I heard gun shots and Got the helpless out of there. Thought I came out untouched but a couple weeks later I got a flat tire and had to change it . Pulled rear tire that's when I seen a bullet hole in the inner fender well .so I was pretty lucky..could of hit the gas tank or tire

    293,000 isn't that much mileage for a semi. Most of them can go a million miles before a rebuild. Racking up 10,000 miles or more a month is normal usage for them. The engine and driveline should still be in good shape on that truck.
