MTV's "Pimp My Ride"

There is this new show on MTV called "Pimp My Ride", where they take a car and fix it up pimp style It is hosted by rapper Xhibit, and he surprises someone and takes their car to a body shop used by celebrities.

The show on currently is fixing up something called a 1988 Dihatsu Hijet. It look like a VW bus but smaller. It is a hilarious show.

But lets hope they don't come out with a "Rice My Ride" show :?

They said they put over $20,000 in that van :shock:

It actually doesn't look that outrageous, except for all the monitors and the wing

I like the show, even though I would not do ANY of that stuff to any of my cars

There is also a show on SPEED called Tuner Transformation which is the same thing. Has a little more credibility.

Did you also know that West Coast Customs got even more fame with Jesse James/WCC and Monster Garage got on tv?

Everyone thought they were the same for some reason. People going to Customs thinking it was Jesse's shop.. and people asking Jesse if he works on cars too.
