Trivia

Many of the people whose rides were pimped were surprised to discover that the customizations to their cars were, in fact, not as free as the show portrayed. Because the show paid for the improvements/customizations, the IRS officially considered it income paid to the pimpee, and much like game show winnings, the equivalent market value of the improvements had to be reported on their tax returns with the appropriate taxes paid for them.

So much fun to watch!
28 August 2004 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

"Pimp my Ride" shows the best of the worst of today's awful cars. Rapper Xzibit will take someone's terrible rundown car to the incredible "West Coast Customs" shop and 'pimp' the car up with the most up-to-date electronics, interiors, rims, and paint jobs.

The transformation of these cars is jaw-dropping. At the beginning, the car are literally held together with duct tape and bungie cords. In the end, the car looks brand new with sound systems so loud they make dogs howl in a 5 mile radius.

Normally, I don't for MTV shows but this is an awesome surprise. This show is highly recommended.

10/10
