MTV's Pimp My Ride - The Complete First Season
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Take the ride featured in the first episode: Wyatt's 1988 Daihatsu Hi-Jet. The musician's "micro-van" is held together with duct tape, sheet metal, and calking. Friend Nathan describes it as "a toaster rolling on donuts." You won't recognize it when the West Coast crew gets finished with it. Now it's tricked out with silver flames, big rim tires, video monitors, a wraparound couch, a refrigerator, a DVD changer, an MP3 player, and a boomin' stereo system. It's the same for every ride they pimp: Mary's 1967 Ford Mustang, Jared's 1985 Ford Ranger, Danelle's 1981 Pontiac Trans Am, Neil's 1974 Chevy "Luv" Truck, Krissy's 1969 Volkswagen Baja Bug, etc.
The first season of Pimp My Ride features 15 rides, all transformed from pathetic hunks of junk into slammin' wheels with crazy extras like turntables, ping pong tables, espresso makers, chandeliers, and lava lamps. The show quickly became MTV's most popular next to The Real World and was renewed for several more seasons. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Does this show give Xzibit, MTV, and West Coast Customs good PR? You bet, but it goes a bit further. For example when one kids car was so bad off it was unsafe to pimp, they didn't say sorry we can't help you out, they bought him a new car and pimped it out. Perhaps this is all just an attempt for ratings, but a part of me wants to think they are really having fun and they enjoy helping people in the process. This first season set comes in a small neon green case and the DVDs are in very slender cases. Several extras, most which are fun to watch except for the one deleted scene of the car being driven around without doors for what seemed forever. I recommend this set to anyone young or old with an interest in cars. That or anyone it warms to see some broke student get their car customized to the tune of about $20,000 and not cost them a dime.Read more ›
These cars are in really horrible shape. Xzibit surprises the person, and takes their car to West Coast Customs, and you hear what their plans are for the car. After the men of WCC discuss what their plans are, you see the magic being done. Sometimes they run into problems, but they always work things out to finish the task at hand. I also have to add the workers reaction when they first see the car enter the lot is comical as well. Xzibit makes jokes while driving some of the cars, because they are that bad.
A lot of the clients are young college students, or getting first jobs, or helping relatives and need reliable transportation.
Some cars get as much as $20,000 worth of work on it!! Rims, new tires, an awesome audio system. A fabulous paint job. The best part of the show is seeing the person results when they see their car again for the first time. Chrstine's reacting was so intense she made me cry.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
