I inherited my dads 1998 Chrysler Sebring Convertible which has been sitting up for over 2 years when I got it--I have since put a new convertible top on it plus new radiator, fixed a major oil leak, new heat pump, air conditioner, ring seals, and some other stuff but no matter what I do it just seems to always want to keep me stranded I have already exhausted all my funds into this car. I know to many this car is not worth the money I have spent on it to get it to where it is today, but it is all I have left that belonged to by dad which passed away suddenly. We gave the car to my 17 year old son to drive on a day to day basics and this car is just leaving him stranded on the side of deserted county roads all the time, which as a mother leaves me worrying endlessly every time he leaves the house. I am a cancer survivor and I had to file bankrupt to pay the bills and can no longer fix this car. Xzibit PLEASE will you PIMP my sons ride before he goes into the military and for my peace of mind for his safety and in memory of my dad!!!
I really love watching your show. Here's my story, I meet my husband in 2001, his wife passed in 2000 & I was living with a friend that passed in 2001. We are both 61, well, he will be 62 Sept. 17th. Anyway, when I met him he was driving a 1968 Chevy pickup that sounded GREAT. Later I told him I fell in love with his truck before him! But I do love him dearly. We both enjoyed car shows, beer, rock n roll, mj & just hanging out together. We got married in 2006. We are both disabled now & living on welfare(which we both hate) & can no longer work. Over the years we went thru a lot of vehicles & now we are back to the chevy truck, which we are both glad of, but she needs a lot of work. He got her back on the road in June 2013, after replacing the motor with a surburban engine. He has been nit pickn to get things caught up on her due to lack of funds. I would be sooo grateful if you would consider helping us out & make our Miss Menke look like she did in her prime, since we are out of ours. Thank you for reading, again love the show, you're great!
Since 2005 or when Pimp My ride started to air. I thought not only how cool it was to make others happy by complete surprise, but how sick and really neat it was to restore and custom build the rides you do and have in previous seasons. Just out of kindness of heart and a way way of giving back is really just true, honest , and amazing. I have a 1980 Buick Century its really one of kind, it only has one side mirror, and now that I'm in a Community College in (Lafayette, IN) i will be ASE certified in Dec 2013, Ive put a little money in it since Ive had to keep it running for what I could afford. There's nothing I would dream for more that for you guys to pimp my ride. So X to the Z PLEASE PIMP MY RIDE
X i really admire your works and all you do but i really wish you could visit Ghana so some of us could have a feel of you. And possibly share in your experience. One love big bro you are the best. Thanks.
My name is Karen Watson. I am writing to you today because of my husband and his van. My husband while at work back in September 2011 was injured at his work place. They done similar work like you but only with car hauling rigs. He was a supervisor and had two trainees with him that day. While up on the trailer working with one of the new guys, the other new guy needed his help. So Tom started over to the other worker, when the worker that he had just left pulled the wrong hydraulic hose and tripped My husband causing him to fall and break his neck and back in several spots. Truck Tech Refurbishing refused to call him an ambulance, so they stuffed him into his little pickup truck. After about a half hour went by they finally said to the on worker to take me to the urgent care not the hospital. Urgent care refused to see them because of the neck injury. They sent them to the hospital. While at the hospital, Tom was fired from his job because Truck Tech was afraid of what this would do to their workers Comp Insurance. To this day, workers comp still haven't helped us in any way. My health insurance finally stepped in to help some. They had to operate ASAP. The doctor said than Tom should have never survived the fall. My husband is permanently disabled and in a wheelchair for the most part. As each day goes on he is losing more and more of his ability to use his legs. Throughout all of this, all the pain he is in and us losing everything that we had, Tom has managed to keep his Faith in the Lord, and keep his family together. Tom is now an Ordained Pastor and spreads the word of God. He is quite an amazing man. What concerns me is the van that we were able to get from a man after his father past a way. It is a 98 Dodge Ram B1500 conversation van. We picked it up and it had been setting for a very long time. Tom brought it home and even though he is in a wheel chair and in a ton of pain, he worked on his van in the driveway. The paint is very faded and there is a lot of rust at the bottom of the van. It isn't a true handicap van, it has the high doors on the side but not powered and it has a lift to take him and his wheelchair in the van. Tom rigged up the doors with some I bolts and some rope. He then took a fifth wheel puller so he can reach out hook the rope and shut his doors. With his legs starting to go, we are in desperate need of some help. We need to make the two side doors power doors, put in hand controls and a drivers seat that will slide back and swivel so that he can transfer from his wheelchair to the drivers seat. The van only has 80,000 miles on it and runs great. Tom is planning to start to travel the state going to the VA's and homeless shelters to help where ever he can. He has also rejoined the Civil Air Patrol and has asked to be the squadrons Moral Leaders Officer. The CAP is a division of the US Air Force. We have finally had some relief Tom's SSA has started to come. So now he can start to travel to the VA"s to help the vets adjust coming home. They really take to Tom, because he is also in a wheelchair. I would so much and be forever grateful if you would Pimp His Ride. He gives so much and didn't let the fall get the better of him. I love my husband and I don't know anyone who would deserve it more to have their ride Pimped out by the Masters. Pimp My Ride.
Thank you so very much for your time Karen Watson

Can you help me? I scratch my husband's trunk and hood of his cadillac while he was at work. I thought I was helping him by cleaning his car off but sad too say I didn't. This car means a lot to him. It only has about 35,000 miles and it has one original owner. He is going to be 50 in August and it would be a great pesant for him if you could help with fixing this car up for him....
I just got a 1989 GT Mustang and didn't even have it 2 weeks and something under the hood caught it on fire, and the front end is gone a lot of the wiring is melted, and the fire company used the jaws of life to the hood, so it's really hard for us to even pay rent and utilities, and none to fix the car, so I can take my Granddaughter to school in the mornings. I beg of you, PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN!..

I have a 1997 Audi 2.8 Tiptronic in reasonable good condition if you don't take into account that there is oil in the waterbottle. Must be a blown headgasket or oil heater that's gone. I wish you guys were in South Africa so you could make my Audi look better than a Koenig conversion. All the great stuff happens in America, it sucks to be in South Africa.

Help....we bought a car for my son for his senior year, a 2000 olds intrigue. We have had nothing but problems, and i know he is so embarrassed driving it, especially when it dies out at a stop, or has a hard time starting it up, no matter where he is, his friends usually have to get off the car and push it, or just pray that it starts. Our son has a big heart and gives to the community, is President of Forensics, and President of Drama. He has overcome so many life illnesses as well as the loss of his grandfathers 8 yrs ago and closest uncle 3 yrs ago. He just can't seem to catch a break, if anything, this is the one thing we were hoping would bring a smile to his face, but instead it has caused a big headache. And he is hoping to have a dependable car to go to college to study to be a cariologist. Can you help......pleasssssssse........firstname.lastname@example.org

Hi. My husband and I have a 1993 GMC 2500 Vandura only because we could not afford a "new" vehicle.
You see, my husband and I have three former preemie babies with the oldest of three who is 4 years old. She was born at 25 weeks 1 pound and 11 ounce. Each pregnancy I was out of work for three months so I borrow money to pay for bills. Our youngest is almost 6 months so what we needed was a vehicle with BIG room.
We had a single cab Ford Ranger but with all the chaos of having our babies early my husband had an accident with the Ford Ranger and it was total while I was at the hosptial 3 hundred miles away with our youngest baby.
Everyday we keep faith and as long as our kids are well we are happy and hoping for something good. We have relatives and friends who did minor repairs here in there, like replace the water heater, fixing the heater. We barely had money to replace the tires two at a time because we were told the van needs special tires and they come $100 something a tire.
Between Diapers, formula, food and everyday basic needs we probably would have about $40 between us to pay for gas until next payday.
I work at a school as a security officer and as I walk around I try to motivate our students to finish school and go on to higher education or work to be a good citizen. At times it becomes difficult but just seeing the kids happy and looking forward to tomorrow is rewarding. There are kids who are not even related in any way but call me "Mommy". I'm there to help "My kids" and support them to make better choice in life. But In the last four years I did not get a chance to see "My kids" graduate but when I see them I get overwhelmed with joy to hear they have "move on" with their lives.
The kids I work with I treat with the same respect I give my older kids I raised and are working and moving on to higher education. I tell them to spread their wings and they will take them a long ways. My daughter hears it so much from the students that she also calls me "Mommy Nora" LOL Thank you so much. "Mommy" Nora

I do the local car shows with my custom 1999 chevy silverado. I have managed a lot of work on it but I have ran out of money. I have big plans like filling the bed of the truck with speakers. I would love to redo the interior. I now have to get the custom paint fixed because my children's trampoline hit the hood and driver side of my truck. I am a girl playing in the boys world. I use the car shows as an escape of my disease. I would love any and all help that I could get to finish my dream ride.
my daughter is deployed over seas for another 5-6 months she was deployed at x-mas time last year. .she is a single mother of two kids.
it would mean so much to me if you would be able to help me fix it up her truck before she returns to the states.to show her how much i love her and for what she is doing for our country....thank you....nanna
Hey my names Kara! Im from Massachusetts and go to school down in Texas. I drive my grandfathers old 94 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It may have been a great car when he was driving it but now it needs some work. It has a strong smell of fuel even when the engine isn't running, the air conditioning is completely broken, the radio connection isn't too great, and the brakes are ready to go soon as well. Soon the paint will be rusting off more in certain spots and I don't see it at all possible to get me back and forth from Massachusetts to Texas. Please help this broke and struggling college student and PIMP MY RIDE!!?! Thank you!

My 2000 Classic Jeep Cherokee fits my lifestyle perfectly except for one big flaw. I am a sustainability consultant and my clients expect me to drive an eco-mobile. The problem is that the vehicle I need does not exist. So I would like help converting my Jeep to an eco-mobile. What is more sustainable than powering an existing vehicle with the sun. Power source would be through PV panels. The reason existing eco vehicles do not work for me include: they are too small and do not fit my lifestyle. I need a Jeep sized vehicle for my work and also to haul my large dogs and sports equipment after hours. Also, I totaled my 1976 Toyota Celica hatchback when I was in college and I have not been able to drive a small car that is low to the ground since. Even racing video games give me a panic attach. One last incentive, we are located in Hawaii and thought you might like to take the show on the road to the Aloha state.
