Pimp My Ride is a show that seeks out the most beat up and abused cars on the road and turns them into beautiful vehicles. Skilled mechanics take these cars and add a bunch of extra features to them. They will even incorporate the likes of the owner into the design of the car.

This show is hosted by the rapper Xzibit. The rapper reviews a video of a person describing their car and how bad it is. The cars usually have structural damage and are not going to pass their next inspection. The person whose car needs to be fixed tells a story about why they need to have a car that is in better shape. Xzibit shows up at their house unexpectedly and tells the person he is going to take their car and make it look cool.

The car is then brought to a mechanic shop. The mechanic fixes the body of the car and adds many additional features such as a stereo system and a custom paint job. The interior of the car is fixed up as well. The custom work on the car is done to match the interest of the owner. For example one fan was into bowling so the crew installed a bowling ball spinner in the trunk of the car. Most of the work is done to make the car look nice. If there a mechanical problem such as engine trouble that will be fixed in addition to the cosmetic work. The work done to the car usually takes around twelve days and the highlights from the work are shown on television. All the work is done at no cost to the person on the show.

Once the custom work is complete Xzibit returns the car to the owner and the audience gets to see how excited the person is to get their car back all pimped out. Each episode features a new car that is in desperate need of an upgrade. In some rare cases there were cars that were in such bad shape they were not worth fixing and were replaced with new cars.
