Quoc-Viet had good intentions when he tried to customize his 1989 Nissan 240SX. While buying an assortment of custom body parts for his ride had seemed like a good idea, actually installing the parts was another problem. The double-sided tape holding together the body kit has begun to lose its grip. In place of the passenger's seat, there's a radiator fan, headlights, gaming controllers, and more random stuff that has no business being there. Despite the fact that Quoc-Viet's rearview mirror is adorned with lucky charms, the car is a disappointment to his girlfriend and family. Luckily, the crew is ready to transform this junk pile into the car of his gaming dreams. Xzibit is about to pimp his ride.
West's 41-year-old ride is over twice his age, but no one is sure how much longer this Ford Fairlane is going to ride on. With nothing but tape holding it together in places, West may have to begin to look for a new whip, unless the guys at West Coast Customs get on the job, and quick. When Xzibit rolls on into the garage with the Fairlane, the boys can't believe their eyes. This ride is definitely a classic, but not exactly practical for a 19-year-old guy about to start college. Seeing that West wants to go to college to become a mechanic, the WCC guys decide to leave the Fairlane just as it is for him to one day fix up himself with his future mechanic skills. West still needs a ride though, and no one leaves West Coast Customs without a smile on their face, and an ultra-hot ride. X gets on the horn, and before we can say "pimped out ride," a brand new, 2005 Toyota 4Runner pulls into the garage. Now the WCC boys have something they can work with.

Heather's Ride is in a state! Paint is pealing off, big black patches on a white truck, what is it meant to be, a cow! She seriously does not know how to take care of a ride, the brake pad's were...well they were, none existence, bare metal, doesn't that screeching sound make something click up in there!!
Now we have seen it all, a college student called Tin, driving a soccer mom's car! a Mini van, just ready to pick up the kids from school!! Tin describes the state of the mini van as a "Dump", maybe that's where it should be! The mini van has chunks of paint missing, parts of the car all over the floor inside the car and even an old Burger that's started decomposing! This ride needs some serious pimping to say the least, and it's in the right hands for exactly that.
Alex is a special education teacher and a magician who loves working with kids. His ride has been though it all, the horn don't work, so he uses a Air Horn, and he's even got a backup!
