In true rags-to-riches fashion, the Pimp My Ride format takes a young, automotively challenged fan and turns his/her bucket into a pimped-out masterpiece.

With the help of celebrity car enthusiast Xzibit and a world famous custom body shop, Pimp My Ride takes a fan whose car is in serious need of an automotive makeover and transforms the less-than-luxurious ride into a tricked-out triumph. From custom rims and paint to plush interiors, lowered suspensions, and the latest in lighting, car audio, and video accessories -- lucky fans get hooked up with a car tailored to their personalities and interests.
