Trivia

Many of the people whose rides were pimped were surprised to discover that the customizations to their cars were, in fact, not quite as free as the show portrayed. Because the show paid for the improvements/customizations, officials from both the IRS and California Tax Authority (since both the show and the work performed to the car were done there) considered this to be income paid to the pimpee. Much like game show winnings, the equivalent market value of the improvements were reported as such to Federal and State authorities, with several pimpees being stuck with tax bills amounting to several thousand dollars.

A fun car show
18 May 2006 | by holmescj80See all my reviews

This is a fun reality show. The basic plot is about someone who has got a rundown car and this guy called Xzibit and his car crew turn these rundown cars into exotic cars.

The best thing about this show is that everyone can enjoy it - no bad language, nudity or violence.

The atmosphere during the show is friendly as everyone who is watching it are amazed by the wizardry of these cars being customized.

Not only are men getting their cars "pimped up", there are more women having their cars decked out in shiny new paint jobs, thumping stereos, smooth interiors, flash mag wheels, and sweet exhaust notes.

One car is pimped up over the 30 minutes of every show. There is the background of the vehicle and the owner, the pimping crew go over how to pimp up the car.

The car doesn't take itself too seriously, as it's all about creativity and imagination (for the automated mind).

No one loses in this show, everyone's a winner. All we need is a pimping crew in Australia........
