I don't know who all watches pimp my ride, but I'm looking at tonights episode. They're doing an 1989LX. Supposedly they dub it "unpimpable." I hope to god they're saying that becuase the frame's rotted out or someting 8O If not MTV will be getting e-mail :p

Should be a good watch. I guess they get buddy a 2004 scion XB as a replacement for his Escort 8)

CTV @ 7:30pm for us Canadian Folk :wink:

The reason they say unpimpableis because there is hardly an aftermaket for escorts.On pimp my ride they usually do stereos,bodykits,paint and redo the interior.I wish they would of had pimped it out and see what they could do with a 15 yr old car.

Please, last week they did a freaking 73 Toyota Landcruiser. Where the hell is the after market for that? They did a lot of custom stuff to that truck.

That wsn't it at all. They didn't want to work on it simply because it was two Escorts glued and somewhat welded together. it was simply unsafe to be on the streets in the first place, so they bought him a Scion or Honda element, or something of that nature and fixed that car up.

It was a Scion Xa if I'm not mistaken. Yeah that "scort" was a piece. it wasn't even completely welded. I think they even had some gum being used to hold the frames otgether somewhere, I can't remember, it was just a total hoopdy. If I wree the kid I would sell the Scion and get a ZX2 or something else with a bit more potential. I'd rather have a Focus or any ford econobox anyday over one of those Scions... oh, I take that back, the new sedan one looks pretty nice. But yeah, point of tha tepisode was a car made from two different cars is not pimpable without properly being constructed first. I'm sure they would have modded anything they needed/wanted onto that car. They are a CUSTOMS shop, they don't only do bolt ons, they tend to use tehm because it's easier, but I'm sure they could mod a kit onto it. although they always have to do that one dumbass mod to make the car "one of a kind" like an espresso machine etween teh seats (see the girl with the Civic, Student/businesswoman)

I just watched the episode. God that car was scary 8O

He's much happier with his xB now :D I think they bought him one because of the Toyota key tag he had.

oh, sorry to hear about that.

for me, when it comes to mtv broadcasting, i can wait. especially with pimp my ride; it was awesome until it became a repeat of the same four cars over and over.
