OK, you have a show that is about cars and you can do a whole episode of racer-boy body parts, eye cancer bling, and end it without showing us under the hood. How much money can you spend on a car and still not make it better?

I used to watch Pimp Me Ride because back then, it was the only auto-related show I knew XD...

But then I realized how ugly their creations are. Not really into show cars. Show cars remind me of riced out cars, lol.

It's a great show. It helps me think of a lot of ways to make my car look better. Except for Pimp My Ride UK. They made a BMW look like a cheap taxi and the only thing they did right was with the Nissan Sunny. I'd rather have Xzibit or Little John pimp my ride.

honestly, i thought they did a great job pimping the interior of the cars, but the exteriors were always super ugly! did anyone see the vegas van that got its sliding door turned into a slot machine? you couldn't open those doors until you waited for the slots to match up 3 in a row.. slowly. WTF? tacky AND impracticle..

I've seen them do a few engine swaps and I think most of what they do is pretty cool. But I stopped watching it because after they do all this work they give the car to non car people that are just going to let it get fucked up like it was before.

I saw a 'where are they now' episode that made me sick. Most of them totally fuck up the cars after getting them back. As a car guy it pisses me off to see these cars turn back to shit.

There are three version of Pimp My Ride (PMR); The Original (US), UK & International. I love The Original (US) one 'coz they really pimped those cars and I've never get bored with X (Xzibit) - He's cool and he also cracks me a lot with his jokes. The other hosts for other version of PMR it's really boring.

I never said show cars are riced out cars. What I meant to imply is that ricers try too hard to look like show cars, and end up doing a low-quality job.

That's the difference between a riced out car and a show car. The riced out car has crap quality, while the show car has some serious work done to it. Either way, I still think most show cars are ugly. Almost all riced out cars are ugly....

there's no such thing as a high quality show car being able to avoid being called rice, if it's tacky, ugly, and a total eyesore, it falls into the rice categorize.

and in the time and world we live in now, rice kind of fall onto just about any car no matter where they're made.

OK then. There's no real true definition of rice, since it's just a slang term. I can agree with you.....
