  • In need of Pimp My Ride

    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

  • Vietnam Vets American Dream...

    My Best friend is in need of a Harley davidson Trike kit makeover, he's sang with Elvis, Richard Burton, had a car repair and restoration shop at one time, untill his health started declining.. he's served our country well, and due to major disabilities from serving in Agent Orange, which has taken a major part of his vitality from him; hasnt deterred his hopes and its his wish to be able to ride his Harley once again to enjoy his American God given freedom for the time lhe has left; disabilities have greatly affected his health, but his dreams are to restore a few more vehicles on his land and enjoy the outdoors; Agent Orange has caused many mobility problems, but his indomitable spirit still soars, and he is a well liked kinda guy who will have you rolling with laughter, an experience not soon forgotten,... Not to mention; the man had a great singing voice; one song he wrote is in the Rock a Billy Hall Of fame; its about Elvis's passing... I heard it on the radio a few times myself.. its a great song... Please can you help make my Dearest Friends Dreams come true...???? Lynn :)
  • car show girl

    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.

  • The Broke College Girl

    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!
  • Really great show if you like cars.

    My father's really old car, Nissan 240-SX (first generation) could use an improvement, and if these guys can improve my father's car, we'll give em some bucks. REALLY.

    Concept: A people in team led by Xzibit and Mad Mike, goes randomly into towns to turn some cheap looking cars to a masterpiece. These guys are a whiz when it comes to car improvement.

    Casts: I liked the casts, they are nice at their jokes, they really know anything about car mechanics.

    Show value: All of the facts from these show are real. You can learn new something from the cars. Plus it's entertaining to watch cars being improved, and looks good to ride-on.

    Overall: 9. I wish they're still up.

  • Convert Jeep to All Electric Vehicle

    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.

    Hi Guys, my parents made a promise to my big sister that they would buy her a car when she graduated high school , a few years later she graduated but my parents lost their jobs and they never forfilled their promise. My sister bought her own car but shes done a great job wreaking it. To this day she has dropped out of college and still says to my parents that they have broken their promise. So I'm hopping you can pimp her ride which will probually encourage her to go back to college and start fresh ! THANK YOU :)

(He has all the receipts of everything he has baught to fix her up,he hadnt gotten around to fixing the old electrical work yet)But this past thursday (Jan.6th,2012) he was driving and after picking up our daughter from school, The car started smoking and then started on fire.He said it was an electrical fire. Tommy grabed our daughter from the back seat,and jumped over the guard rail.They are ok Thankfully. He just filled up the tank before he picked my girl up form school. I have been told that if he would have waited and the gas tank was empty the car could have blown up due to the fumes in the gas tank.The whole front of the car is burnt. It was an old school car so it was made of metal. But there is alot of damage. Please pimp out my old school MC.This car is the only thing I have from my dad.Thank you Please, e-mail me. ladawnsparrow@yahoo.com

  • Son's Dream

    Dear Pimp My Ride, I am writing to you because I think my son deserves help in fixing his ride. Two years ago his father gave him a Ford F150 pick up for them to refinish together. Just two months after he got the ride our house burnt down and his dad passed away. He has held on to this turck because of the memories that it has, but yet it is a rolling disaster. I wish for him and the memories that he has of his dad that you could pimp his ride. Thanks for the time.

  • I am a 26 year old college student, studying to get my BA in english. I have four beautiful children, and I am still driving my first car a classic '86 Cadillac cimmaron. She runs well but could really use some cosmetic work.

    I have worked really hard to get where I am today I have obtained my AAS in Medical Assisting and I am currently working with students struggling in English, Computer Applications and Medical Courses, I am a tutor/librarian. I have a very positive outlook on life and I pull off the Cadi well but I would love to have it pimped. It will be a while until I am able to purchase a new vechicle and since I have to drive "cinnamon" everyday I believe she should relfect me. Im thinking PINK! I think what you guys do to cars is straight up pimp! I hope that you will take another look at this message and consider me. Respectfully, Belle
  • this is the best show on mtv

    this show is crazy as hell. how could you not wach it? i dont understand. unless youre some rich kid with an already really nice car or someone selfish who doesnt care about seeing good thigns happen to other people, you gotta give this show its propz ! i read someones review and he just goin off on how the show follows a certain format so to speak but you know what ? alot of shows do so back off. okay ? xzibit has to show up at the house to get the car. of course the lucky people are gonna go crazy. they\'re meetin xzibit and hes about to have their ride pimped out. they show the ride gettin pimped out cuz thats what the show is. then they have to show the reaction when the person gets their car back cuz that\'s what makes all the trouble worth it. if youre hatin on this show, youre selfish and need to go sit in a corner somewhere and keep your thoughts to yourself.
