I've Been De-Pimped!

West Coast Customs LogoI love watching Pimp My Ride on MTV. Not because of the customizations. They are totally excessive and useless. The true premise of the show is "Let's get a bunch of money from advertisers and spend on frivolous things for no reason".

Pimped Hi-JetI have to wonder what happens after the camera crew leaves. Most of these cars are parked on the street outside the owner's house. What do you think happens to a car with four video screens, an X-Box, a killer sound system, and expensive rims when it sits outside overnight? I'm guessing most of the extras are gone within a week. The guy with the Hi-Jet van still had an aging piece of crap with an old, tired engine and creaky drive train. Even if he does manage to keep the chop shop crews away, how many more miles does that bucket have in it? One has to wonder how long it will be before that van is abandoned in on of those vacant LA housing projects we always see in the movies.

Apparently, I'm not the only one thinking about this.
