Xzibit and the good people at West Coast Customs make people’s cars go from dirt to pimped in this 30 minute show that airs weekly on MTV. Hosted by Xzibit and featuring Los Angeles-area aftermarket shop West Coast Customs, “MTV Pimp My Ride” selects young, automotively challenged Southern Californians and transforms their rust buckets into triumphs.

For many young adults, getting the insurance or finance to fix up their cars can be difficult and taking out a car loan is often not an option. “It’s not just about the cars anymore,” Xzibit said, but also “the boost that these kids get in their self-esteem. You can see it in their faces.” “Everybody has had a bucket in their life,” said Xzibit, using L.A. slang for a clunker. He has had two of his own rides — a Hummer H2 and a Mercedes-Benz S500 — “pimped” at West Coast Customs. A typical episode begins with Xzibit paying a surprise visit to the viewer and humorously highlighting the car’s numerous problem areas. Then it’s off to West Coast Customs, where a team of professionals disassembles the vehicle and completely refurbishes it with custom rims and paint, plush interiors and the latest in lighting, car audio and video accessories. Wheels, Grilles, Body Kits, Customer Paint, Rims, Tires, Car Audio, Car DVD Video and Computer Systems, and many more crazy additions are transplanted into a Pimped Rides every episode! To qualify for a pimping, you’ll need to be 18-24 years old, and live in the Southern California area.

Xzibit and Governer Arnold Schwarzenegger on Pimp My Ride

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was so impressed by the biodiesel makeover he took part in on an upcoming environmentally-themed Pimp My Ride show, he insisted mechanics install the same engine under the bonnet of his Hummer. The star and rapper/host Xzibit joined forces to makeover a 1965 Chevy Impala and give the classic vehicle an environmental, biodiesel edge as part of an Earth Day Pimp My Ride. And Schwarzenegger was stunned when Galpin Auto Sports mechanics fitted the classic car with an 800 horsepower biofuel engine, equipped with recycled plastic bottles. He has now asked Galpin boss Beau Boeckman to fit the same engine in his own car.

Xzibit and Governer Arnold Schwarzenegger on Pimp My Ride

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger teamed up with rapper Xzibit to “pimp” a ’65 Chevy Impala on an upcoming episode of MTV’s hit show Pimp My Ride. Schwarzenegger, Mad Mike and the crew of Pimp My Ride give the Impala an ecological make over on the show’s season premiere, which takes place on Earth Day (Apr. 22). “I would like to thank MTV and the entire Pimp My Ride crew for shining the spotlight on the importance of alternative fuels and the fight against global warming,” Governor Schwarzenegger said in a statement. “I am very encouraged by the great potential in converting vehicles to run on biodiesel as a way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” said Governor Schwarzenegger. “I am pleased that the power of MTV’s message will reach an audience throughout California and the nation to reinforce the benefits of alternative-fuel vehicles and protecting our environment.” The special edition features the Impala getting an 800 horsepower Duramax diesel engine that will run on biodiesel fuel, educating viewers during the show about the benefits of ecological friendly cars. “What better way to celebrate the anniversary of our Break the Addiction campaign than pimping the environment with a pro like Governor Schwarzenegger – a powerful voice in the fight against climate change,” added Christina Norman, President, MTV. “During the past year, we’ve reached millions, giving our audience the tools they want to make changes in their own lives. The state of our environment is one of the most critical issues facing our audience today and we’re honored that we can inspire and educate even more as we celebrate Earth Day with this special Pimp My Ride event.” Pimp My Ride premieres Apr. 22, on Earth Day.

Pimp My Ride DVD Series 1 Review from Amazon.com

The MTV series, Pimp My Ride-The Complete First Season is now available on DVD. The three disc set includes all of the episodes from the first season of the surprise MTV hit series which stars rapper Xzibit. The box set comes in a bright neon green box, as seen above. The individual discs are enclosed in their own plastic keepsake cases. There are a total of 15 pimped out rides included in the box set and a nice selection of special features. It’s not hard to forget the very first episode of Pimp My Ride, Wyatts 1988 Daihatsu Hi-Jet. Not only were Wyatt and Xzibit from two totally different worlds it seemed, X and the crew at West Coast Customs totally pimped the Hi-Jet. The episodes themselves are pretty much the same. Xzibit suprises a young Southern California male or female who appears to be under twenty five years old and attempts to drive their raggedy car to West Coast Customs. Next we see the staff of West Coast Customs sit down in a meeting (a rep from the company said in FHM magazine that the meeting is strictly for the camera), and they determine just what tricked out things they are going to do to the car. So essentially, it is a total car makeover with special additions like shoe racks, e-mail hook-ups, video game systems, camera, video moniters and other hi tech additions. The special features are interesting for the Pimp My Ride fan. Disc three includes the special features, which are as follows: -Deleted scenes (not too much here, just a few little out takes that include Xzibit and the staff of West Coast Customs clowning around) -Bloopers -The staff of West Coast Customs and the kids who have their rides pimped flub on lines. -Exclusive car Tour featuring Travis Barker (Blink 182) and his 1954 Cadilac Coup DeVille- (this is a nice little featurette. Travis and all of his tattoos explain to Xzibit just what he did to make his Caddy look nice and smooth, down to the two tone paint. -What We Drive featurette-We see Q’s motorcycle, Gary’s hot BMW and Mikes motor home or some kind of live in coach home that is circa 1978. -Xzibit Music Video-“What You See It What You Get.” Pimp My Ride season one is a great purchase for someone who loves the shows, like Xzibit or for the car fan. Set also includes an insert to purchase “Pimp My Ride” clothes, Scarves, car mats, shot glasses and other personalized materials.

    Hi X, I have a big problem.. I have a 1999 Acura Integra GS and I was looking around for someone that would make my car into v – tech from non v – tech, so to make a long story short.. I paid $5,500 to this guy and his shop “MOVE MOTORSPORTS” from n. palm springs. He was supposed to put in a K series motor and some BBS rims on it and a beautiful paint job that i came out with the color.I called it furious fusia. well he had my car for over 2 years , and when i got it back the motor i had paid for was not the one installed, he had put in a B20 engine instead of the K Series, the paint job sucked so bad and the really damaged my front end bumper that’s a JDM front conversion , the rims r fake, and to top it off i had to take it back to him because the illegal headers he had installed were missing a bolt and the motor was leaking oil. We had agreed that my ending balance would be paid in payments, but since i took him back my car he held it hostage. So i had to pay him to get my baby back, I barely made it home. My car broke down on me getting in to town , and since then its been parked in my drive way unable to run. This man came the next day after i told him what happened and said he would come back again, and he never did… I put in a report with automotive bureau and apparently he checked out good when i know i had just found out that he had no license. I take care of my 94 year old grandfather who suffers from ahlzimers , dimensia , he gets physically agressive and i have no one in my family that helps me but my fiance. I am my grandfathers caregiver so that’s my employment and my fiance works at the fantasy springs casino. we pay our house taxes and bills and currently are looking into a infertility specialist since we have been trying and no luck. I gave this man my trust and he really screwed me, I miss my car and every night I cry myself to sleep because i’m starting to think that i might have to sell her. i have had my car for a while and am sooo attached to it with sentimental value. this would be my only hope if you could please some how help me, I am not asking to come out on your show but if some how you can help me to get my baby running. I dont want all the luxury things i have seen you guys do to those gorgeous cars you guys work on but just to get her running. PLEASE HELP!!! I AM WILLING TO DO ANYTHING TO PAY YOU BACK IN PAYMENTS OR HOW EVER I CAN, THAT I PROMISE. Thanks for listening..

    Hi X,

    I am an ardent follower of the Pimp my ride show. I love the show to the bone. Good works that you do over there. I recently bought a 2005 Volvo S40 red in color. Now I have been thinking if you could hit me up with ideas on how to pimp and help me if I could buy the side skirtings and fancy front pumper then ship them to Zambia.

    Your response will be highly appreciated.

    Regards.
