How to get your car on "Pimp My Ride"

05/23/05 | by silverso | Categories: Deep Thoughts

I don't know why, but for months now people have been asking me to "pimp their rides". No matter how often I insist that I'm not Xzibit, and have neither the means nor desire to help them I still keep getting sob stories about cars that really need to be pimped. Well, I did a little research and found out exactly how to get your ride pimped, so listen up morons 'cause I'm not gonna tell you again:

Wanna Pimp Out Your Ride?

Does your car need some major work?
Are you embarrassed to pick up your date because of your ride?

Scared to roll up to that job interview because of your bucket?

Fear no more - MTV wants to give you the hottest car on the block. We're gonna take that hooptie and pimp it out. And we ain't just talkin a paint job either. We'll hook you up with the hottest ride on the street with all the hot accessories.

If you are between the ages of 18-22, own your ride and live in the Southern California area, give us a holler at 310.907.2688 or send an email to pmrcasting @ mtvstaff.com.

If you do NOT live in Southern California please email pmrusa @ mtvstaff.com only.



Street Address, City, State, Zip

Phone #'s (Home, Cell)
Email Address

Description of what is wrong with your car (we are looking for body damage and interior damage)
Picture of the crappy car and its owner (Be it you or your friend)

THERE! Now if that doesn't do the trick, I don't know what will. Maybe instead of asking someone to fix your car for you, you should try your hand at online poker and try to win enough cash for a new car!

As much as I’d like to believe your theory of people just being dumb and think that this is the official pimp my ride site, I just don’t buy it. They obviously aren’t reading your replies and probably don’t even come to your site. What commenting system is this based on? Maybe someone has found a way to exploit it and is playing a practical joke? I dunno… anyways good luck finding out the cause.

are you sure you’re not Xzibit? I mean, are you sure??

Comment from: silverso

Obviously they aren’t reading the replies, and I’ve already received another car pimping request! I do think they are coming to this site though. There’s nothing in the referal stats to indicate otherwise, and there are lots of hits coming from Google that include “pimp my ride” in the key words. The biggest reason I think these people are all morons (other than the fact that the English they use in their comments is often worse than that of my Japanese students) is that most of these people have AOL email addresses. They probably are used to AOL’s simple keyword system where the first thing that comes up is always what they are looking for, so this MUST be the official Pimp My Ride website.

“The biggest reason I think these people are all morons (other than the fact that the English they use in their comments is often worse than that of my Japanese students)”

Sure doesn’t say much for your teaching skill.

Comment from: silverso

I’m only an “assistant” teacher, so I think the blame for that lies more on their Japanese teachers, Japanese society and everyone other than myself.

MTV only pimps the rides of the youngest, and finest hoties they can find. I’m sure Rodney could pimp it for you using his amazing science skillz.

Dear Pimp My Ride,
I really need you to please pimp my grandma’s car out. It is really old!!! She loves this car, but we have barely no money to pimp it out ourselves; my father is on kidney failure. We really need your services, if you could please pimp out my grandma’s car. It has no cover for the roof of the car; oh and I don’t have a digital camera because we are BROKE! We have enough to get through, but not for luxury. We also have a truck, that is a very nice truck, and the only thing that is wrong is the floor board. The carpet comes off. I would like if you could pimp out them 2 cars. PLEASE! have a heart for me.

Does anyone know a good English/Writing teacher? Someone should really help these people with the proper usage and terminologies. “Ya’ll peace out ‘aight” –Get an education, then you might get a job, then you might have enough money to “pimp a ride” yourself.—

Comment from: Aubrey

My name is Aubrey and my boyfriends name is David. He owns a 1984 z28 Camero that was given to him by his father. At one time it was a nice car but now..The t-tops are rusted and leaking, seats are full of mildew, interior is dry rotted and ripped, spoiler on trunk is 1/2 gone, hood is bent due to brake failure and wreck, motor smokes really bad, takes 20 to 30 minutes to get it started, and needs a full paint job because it is all different colors. He loves his car more than anything and I am embarressed to be seen in it. He really wants it to be running but doesnt have enough money to pimp it out. He works full time but still can not afford everything that this car needs. I think If this car was pimped it would it would be one of america’s greatest sport cars on the streets. PLEASE COME PIMP OUT HIS CAR, IT WOULD MEAN THE WORLD TO HIM!! and then I would ride in it! Thank you

06/30/05 @ 00:34
Comment from: Aubrey

I wrote about my boyfriends 1984 z28 camero the passenger side door doesnt open because the handle is broken off, which means i have to climb over, the driver window doesnt roll down so a channel lock is hooked to it to roll it down, the car stinks due to mildew and i hate riding in it…please pimp out his ride. my email adress in aubizsexy69@aol.com and his email is nookdog25@aol.com If you seen this car, you would love to pimp it out it would be a fine ass camero with a little or a lotta work. I think ya’ll would really enjoy pimpin this ride. But i do not live in southern cali. I live in New Orleans Louisiana so my phone number is 504-277-6995 and my cell is 504-473-9426. Please do this for me and my boyfriend. He has had a very hard life and me and THIS CAR is all he has and i believe that he really deserves this blessing so mtv please pimp his ride or even just take a look at it and i promise you’ll want to do it!! thanx Aubrey
