Home renovation shows are all the rage on television these days. But what about car renovation?
Pimp My Ride was part of the MTV schedule from 2004-2007. Hosted by Xzibit, the premise of Pimp My Ride is as follows: the subject of each episode needs a complete makeover of their ride. Rapper Xzibit shows at their home, examines their car and takes it the shop to start the renovation process. By the time the episode is over, the car has been renovated to its owner’s specifications.
Pimp My Ride is not the greatest show in the world. Nor is it the most intellectual. From my perspective, it can be defined as wish-fulfillment. If money was no object, how would you renovate your car?
Do I recommend it? Maybe.
