    The number 8 is considered quite lucky in the Chinese community, so the 88th car would be auspicious. I wonder how he swung that!

    He might have requested it. If he was early enough I'm sure they would have accommodated him. The VINs are decoupled from actual production order.

    I have always assumed that he got #88 on purpose.

    It is amusing that he uses the Knight Rider theme music in all of his videos!

    Knight Rider. You are too young to have remembered when the Hof was actually cool.

    Actually I was 18 when it first aired... A bit too old to get into it.
    I was more into movies like The Road Warrior and Blade Runner at the time.
