(Newser) – One of the original KITT cars that David Hasselhoff rode to fame in “Knight Rider” is up for sale on eBay. The 1984 Pontiac Trans-Am, one of a handful of computer-operated vehicles used on the mid-1980s TV show, is being auctioned as lawyers for its late owner, real estate mogul Andrew Kissel, seek to pacify creditors, the Hartford Courant reports.

Kissel’s estate wants at least $20,000 for the car, and so far, bids have reached $30,000, CityNews says. In July, a 1982 KITT car sold for $100,000. Meanwhile, Kissel’s murder hasn’t been solved, but police suspect he paid his handyman to kill him to secure a $15 million life insurance policy for his family.
