i found out pimp my ride cruises around LA looking for beaters, then puts a flyer on the car and if you want your car to be on the show you submit your info... so all the hooplah about being surprised about Xzibit coming to their house is BS as they knew in advance he was coming. then the owner has to sign a contract stating something like "you can't sell the car or any of it's parts for x amount of time." anyone else notice that there is no "performance advisor? but the "bling advisors" are obnoxiously abundant? if I ever got a car on that show I'd lay down a few guidelines first. nothing yellow, no body kits, to tvs/videogames/turntables/swimmingpools, and do at least three performance mods to the engine. that would show them.
