US$20,000 of goods put into the Hi-Jet, painted in "Hi-Jet" blue with silver and gray flames. *The "micro-van" was done with a Jet theme, including authentic airliner "fasten your seatbelt" plaques and a large rear spoiler. *The rear of the van included a wrap-around couch, wall mounted 15-inch TV and tiny fridge. *Wyatt (trying to start a band) was given a preamp and guitar to be able to play music through the stereo system, and a mini camera was installed in the grill and displayed on the internal monitors.
*Painted in candy pink pearl and fitted with 20-inch wheels, the car had a see-through DVD changer in the dash and a plexiglass-encapsulated "river" (playing off the River Nile; after the owner's name: "Nile"). When the trunk opened, a shoe rack full of new shoes automatically extended, replacing the pile of old shoes that the owner had stashed in her trunk.
The floor of the trunk was made to resemble the hardwood floor of a professional basketball court. WCC painted the car with a custom bright green in the front that faded into a dark green from the midpoint towards the rear of the car.
Painted blue that matched the neon they put on the bottom. WCC put a 10-inch monitor inside the car. WCC also installed a small aquarium in between the rear seats. The original 13-inch wheels were replaced with 18-inch wheels. Xzibit planned to replace the car with a Hummer H3. But it didn't happen.
The front seats were made to recline all the way flat so that the custom LCD monitor in the headliner could be easily viewed. The car was originally fitted with special exhaust pipes that shot out flames when the engine was started. However, due to concerns of the WCC owner Ryan that such devices could be illegal, they were quickly removed.
When the Trans Am was being pimped, some of the WCC crew made references to Smokey and the Bandit. This pimped-out vehicle had a coffee maker installed in a center console and a chandelier in place of the dome light. The car has a huge bird decal installed on the new Trans Am's hood. However, due to the oversized design, a smaller one replaced it.
This was two halves of two Ford Escorts welded and "gummed" together; therefore the car was considered too dangerous for him to continue to own. To replace this car, WCC and Xzibit procured a 2004 Scion xB and "pimped" that instead.
An automated surf rack was installed on the roof. A 40-inch TV was installed in the back, making it the largest television WCC has ever put in a car. A fold-out school bus style stop sign that read "CHILL" was put on the side.
Produced as a replica tie-in with the video game Need for Speed: Underground 2, because the owner was a fan of the video game series. Of note is that the 240SX featured in the game was a hatchback, while the pimped car was a coupe.
The 19-year-old owner was hoping to become a mechanic, so WCC and Xzibit decided to let him restore his car himself and procured a 2005 Toyota 4Runner to "pimp". This is the only time that the car intended to be pimped was returned to the person without being worked on, and the only time in the show's three replacement vehicles (to date) that the person got back the old car and received a new pimped vehicle.
Formerly a Municipal Van, turned into a limousine for the band that the owner played for. The hot tub in the rear added so much weight when filled with water that an air suspension system was installed on the rear axle to support it.
This pimped vehicle is seen on the intro episode of "Where are they now?".
A digital projector was mounted on the trunk lid that could pivot so that the projector faced forward and could turn any wall into a drive-in movie theater. A popcorn maker was also installed in the center console and individual DVD players were also stuffed into the headrests so the rear passengers could each watch their own movie.
The owner of the vehicle was studying to become a nutritionist. The car was fitted with a huge cloth sunroof, a rear wing with a solar panel to power the electronics, and a juicer in the trunk. The entire interior of the car was retrofitted with yellow shag carpeting; when he saw it Xzibit promptly joked, "Who killed Big Bird?"
This car was infested with rat droppings; indeed, the mechanics found a live rat inside the car. Consequentially, Xzibit's gift to the car's owner was a cat, which Jessica named "Pacer".
At the end it says; "no rats were harmed in the pimpin' of this ride"
The car had suffered a lot of superficial body damage before it was "pimped". The reverse gear was also broken, which WCC had repaired. Intriguing features of this car included four liquid crystal displays mounted in the left and right of both front and rear bumpers.
Since being pimped, Josh wrecked the car, as he brought it to the "Where are They Now?" episode sans hood. Xzibit mockingly told Josh that they do not do Re-Pimps. Xzibit also revealed that, 15 minutes after giving Josh his rental car—MTV gives rental cars to the owners whose cars are being pimped—he also wrecked his rental car (a Chevrolet Malibu).
This truck was "pimped" so that the entire truck bed could come out at an angle. Also, the driver's seat included a special raise and lower feature, as Heather (a very short female) had difficulty seeing out the back.
The truck had its brakes nearly completely gone (which emits a very loud screeching sound); the show featured the truck hitting an egg (before the brakes were fixed), then rerunning the same stunt with fixed brakes, where the egg was not hit.
The truck also had, for proper weight, cow manure, and hoes (Xzibit frequently told the audience during this episode that the "hoes" were of the gardening kind, not the other kind) in the truck bed before being "pimped".
The electronics in the back of her truck cost more than US$30,000.
Since the owner was a full-time student who often slept in his car, the van was installed with a custom fully reclining Maybach-style seat positioned between two waterfalls. It also included a 17-inch LCD flip monitor and a built-in DVD player. Also included was a built-in badminton net with a shuttlecock launcher. In addition, Tin was given a laptop with wireless internet, a wireless keyboard and a USB compatible microscope.
An all-new small-block Chevy V8 engine was installed in the car in order to live up to its reputation as a muscle car. Also, since the driver practiced magic, it also had its sound system concealed, only to be revealed by a secret incantation.
Alex revealed on the "Where are They Now?" episode that he wrecked the car the first day he got it back.
The WCC crew removed the backseats and replaced it with the MTX AudioJackHammer, a 22-inch subwoofer weighing 369 pounds. A decibel meter was installed in the dash to alert Jake to keep it down. Uniquely, due to wanting a retro 1950s nature for the car, this would perhaps be the only car in Pimp My Ride's history to have flat black paint, and alloys replaced with regular steel wheels, whitewalls, and hubcaps.
The car was once Jake's grandmother's, whom was a chain smoker. So many cigarette butts were found in the car, Xzibit quipped, "Grandma's lungs must be as black as I am."
During the filming of this episode, Big Dane told Jake to "Be more excited, or I will stomp you."
Having stated that Calvin had seen a UFO (known as the Flying Saucer) after living in the desert, his car was painted silver with green glow-in-the-dark crop circles and featured doors that opened automatically via a remote control.
This was the first actual business vehicle to be pimped, which means Dante could receive a tax deduction if he gets taxed for everything put into it.
The truck was painted sapphire blue with icicles on the side. Ice cream-related features included a touch screen order system, a robotic arm which can dispense the ice cream to the customer at a kid level, and a full stock of ice cream.
Having been completely stripped of all parts and stolen, only the actual frame and cabin remained (he still can drive it because California state law says that in order to drive a car, it must have working headlights, which it has). The car was painted in a camouflage style purple, white, grey, and black, nicknamed "glamoflage" (sticking out instead of blending in as camouflage does). The seats had a layer of kevlar added. Other than a complete "pimping" of his car, Jason also received a Yamaha Raptor 350 All Terrain Vehicle that was also pimped. The GAS crew put two LCD monitors and a DVD player on the ATV.
Xzibit finds the graphics on the SUV and he does not know what kind of graphics these are.
The Range Rover was given an orange paint job with a white stripe. In the rear a water bed and water machine were installed. On the roof GAS installed a satellite dish which could connect to the internet from anywhere in the world.
This pimped vehicle is seen on the intro episode of "Where are they now?".
Car's Aztec-style paint scheme by street artist Man One; interior seats done up with Aztec pyramid designs; trunk made to hold art supplies for Xilomen's art classes; car can "paint" via paint guns in each tire's wheel well.
A football fan's El Camino becomes the ultimate tailgating machine. Metallic purple paint job with yellow flames. New 350 cubic-inch, 350 hp engine with bird catcher blowers. Satellite TV with five plasma monitors, 5000 Watt audio amplifier, and PlayStation 2. Also includes a propane grill and Wunder Bar condiment dispenser.
Car's body parts placed with the Porsche and Ferrari body kits by the GAS crew.
The car's theme was "Hair Force One". This is due to the fact that Lawanna was a hair stylist who was about to enter the Air Force. In the trunk in the car's front was installed a sink with shampoo and conditioner dispensers, as well as waterproof speakers and an iPod nano. Inside the car was a high-power hair dryer which got air via a scoop on the car's roof.
The cockpit featured airplane-style gauges and a flight navigation system. Xzibit also gave her a plane toy that includes flight lessons in order to fly a real plane.
Due to the high temperatures the engine was giving off to the cockpit, Xzibit replaced the Pulsar with a brand-new Ford Mustang GT to be pimped.
This is only the third time in the series history, and the first time using GAS as the customizer, that the vehicle was replaced rather than pimped.
The new Mustang GT was painted bright green with chrome on the front end. The interior featured seventeen monitors between the pillars, sun visors, dashboard, and head rests. In the trunk were three additional monitors, including a 20-inch monitor that could pop out, tilt, and spin around. This is a Pimp My Ride record for most monitors installed (twenty total).
Xzibit revisited the pimped cars of "Big" Ron (Cadillac El Dorado), Dante (Ford Econoline Ice Cream Truck), Josh (Toyota Corolla), Nile (Cadillac DeVille), Ryan (VW Bus), Christine (Honda Civic), and Alex (Chevrolet Chevelle).
Two of the cars have since been wrecked: Josh's Corolla (he also totaled the rental car they gave him) and Alex's Chevelle (which was totaled the first day he got it).
Two of the rides were seen in the intro part of this episode are: Tad's Range Rover and Nate's Econoline.
Equipped with a new Ford Racing Engine, Kumho racing tires that makes pink smoke if the driver does a burnout, windows that roll up by snapping, and a trunk that takes pictures when the trunk lid is opened.
GAS paints the car pink with a reddish-pink symbol on the front, they took the Mercedes symbol off and made a big "S" made out of diamonds (actually rhinestones). Monitors were put in all of the head rests (Facing forward for some strange reason, making it so people in the front seats would have to turn their head around to watch them). Also, it included fake beaver skin seats. At the end they gave her custom-made pink roller skates.
GAS crew equips with a special "crunk trunk", which opens and closes repeatedly. However, this show features GAS crew Jason, placing his arm on an open trunk. Mad Mike then tests it out, and Jason's arm becomes "amputated". Jason says that it's "only a flesh wound". The blood nearly stained the car. (intended to be a spoof of the Black Knight scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.)
After the placing of the beaver fur on the seats it says "no rabbits were harmed or pimped during the making of this episode"
The forward-facing headrest monitors were dubbed "Extreme Hatervision" by Mad Mike and Xzibit.
Robert's grandparents won this van back in 1984 in Las Vegas. It was already pimped out with graphics of Las Vegas resorts from the time. (Robert asked MTV to "repimp" his ride.)
The GAS crew equips with a slot machine in order to open the sliding door, the owner must get a jackpot. A craps table floor and a keyboard piano with a roulette table built inside of a baby grand piano replica were installed as well.
The van was equipped with a special "Vroom Box" which enabled the van to sound like other different types of "Supercars" including a Ford GT and an Aston-Martin Vanquish, the front fascia was replaced by a Dodge Caravan piece.
Because of his love of both Transformers and all kinds of candy, his car's pimping includes a "Transforming" back seat that slides open to reveal the sound system and monitors, and a cotton candy machine in the trunk.
In honor of Jonathan's love of comic books (and the Fantastic Four in particular) and surfing, the car was painted with "Silver Surfer" chrome, and the interior done up with Fantastic Four accents, including a comic keeper replacing the glove box (loaded with a copy of Fantastic Four #48—the issue in which the Silver Surfer premiered—valued at US$4000) and a rear A/V/Xbox setup inspired by The Thing. He was also presented with a custom "Silver Surfer" surfboard. (They actually gave him a copy of Fantastic Four #50, you can tell by simply watching the episode and looking at the cover of the comic, #50 is not the first appearance of Silver Surfer and that comic is not likely to be worth $4000 due to condition and lack of grading).
Due to being unavailable to film this episode, Xzibit's hosting duties were filled in by rapper Chamillionaire, who—according to the episode—used to drive a CRX as his work vehicle, transporting urine samples from doctors' offices to the testing facility.
Since he was running a family dog grooming business, the back of his van got the ultimate grooming station with a new bathtub and a drying cage with a 32-inch monitor so the dogs can watch TV while they get dried off.
They also hooked him up with a slide-out 42-inch monitor, a black and blue paint job with cage graphics because he wanted to become a cage fighter.
GAS also gave him a hot dog maker in his dash when he gets hungry.
Bethan Jones wanted her car pimped so it could be her wedding car. The headrests had custom embroidered "Mr." and "Mrs." (Mrs on the driver's side, naturally), as well as a matching love seat in the boot. Surfboards were resting on a new roof rack, and since Bethan was "really into" photography the garage install a laptop, printer, digital camera, plus a mobile phone to upload pictures on the go.
As Lawrence was a fan of 1950s culture, the car was pimped in the style of a 1950s hotrod. An American style diner was installed in the boot. It was advertised for sale in the March 2007 issue of Custom Car Magazine and the May 2007 issue of Retro Ford.
This was pimped as part of the 2007 Comic Relief appeal, the "Community Volunteer Transport" of the Staffordshire Moorlands. The van features an LCD screen bingo game that is linked behind each seat of the bus for the elderly passengers.
The van was used as a tour bus for Robin and his band, Playground Legend. It had a recording studio with a sofa in the rear, and the outside was decorated with the band's logo and a picture of the band members.
