X works some magic in double episodes, weekdays @ 12:00 (repeats @ 16:00) CAT on MTV Base!...
In true rags to riches fashion, "Pimp My Ride" takes a young automotively-challenged fan and turns his/her bucket into a pimped out masterpiece. With the help of celebrity car enthusiast, Xzibit, and world famous aftermarket shop West Coast Customs, who has pimped out cars for Shaquille O'Neal, 50 Cent, and Ludacris, "Pimp My Ride" takes a fan whose car is in serious need of an automotive makeover and transforms the less-than-luxurious ride into a tricked out triumph. From custom rims and paint, to plush interiors and lowered suspensions, to the latest in lighting, car audio and video accessories - one lucky fan is getting hooked up! The makeover begins when hip-hop impresario and host Xzibit pays a surprise visit to a fan and takes the viewer on an amusing tour of the fan's "diamond in the rough," pointing out some of the "problem areas." Then, it's off to West Coast Customs, where the team strips down the car to its bare bones and completely refurbishes it. In a matter of days, the makeover is complete and the new ride will have been officially pimped!
