Did You Know?


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.

Renovating automobiles
29 December 2004 | by IrockGswiftSee all my reviews

It's amazing that a body shop named West Coast Customs can turn a near junkyard material vehicle into a play house on wheels. The show is hosted by rapper Xihibit,and his garage pal decorators at West Coast Customs. This show is fun to watch and give people ideas on encouraging them to fix up their hoopties(An old beat up car). From installing a photo booth in one of the cars to installing a shoe rack,these guys can do it all at West Coast Customs. These guys will find out what you enjoy and put it in your vehicle. They need to have something like that on the east coast but it'll probably be very expensive,and if I want all those accessories in my vehicle I'll just get a new one. But it's exciting to see the guest faces after their vehicles been remodeled. Never in a million years these guest think their vehicles could ever be made over into the road of luxury. Xihibit is charming and funny with the guests. Just another way to keep the checks rolling in his pocket.
