    it was a fairly nice kit for a first gen...

    anyone know what kind of kit it was?

    scoop was wack...
    stock carbed motor was wack...
    interior work was overkill...
    paint job was nice, color was ok...

    yeah I saw it a few days ago. Honestly, I didn't think that the CRX was that good lookin afterwards IMO.

    Worst show EVER.

    They take pieces of shit cars that barely run, and rice it out, giving it a tune up at best. So now, you have a neon orange and green 1984 Maxima that still barely runs, but has a 24 inch LCD screen in the back.

    That's because they're letting a bunch of bling-blang jungle dwellers work on the car. It's stupid. MTV should be having Gary Castillo pimping the rides. That would be killer.

    They did a pretty cool one the other day. That yellow 72 fj40 landcruiser. My uncle has one and those things kick ass.

    The whole thing was a big dissapointment. Giant wing, neon, all the standard crap. Had the car been on a show like Overhaulin', things may have been different. :)

    EDIT: Shrunk the picture

    Well, stereotypes exist 'cause they're true. They are bling loving, materialistic, non performance-oriented "african-americans." How's that? Don't be so sensative, it was a joke and it yielded a laugh. Grow up and overcome. Man, fuck off. I'll leave it at that.

    Oh yeah, just as an aside:

    y cant u "afferkan amurrrkans" lurn too spell an shyt

    I'm done with this thread. Don't be such a sensative little girl about it. I don't care if you call me a milktoast honkey, why should you care if I call you a boogie boo.

    AMEN!

    But for real, ever since you open your mouth all you've caused are problems. Don't take everything so seriously.

    tuner transformation isnt bad. they took a srt 4 a while ago, did a full coilover suspension, bigger turbo, new injectors, bigger fmic, charge pipes, exhaust etc etc, wheels...all that. Then they took a m3, did some suspension work, a lil motor work, resprayed it, it looked good. they dont go all out bling bling

    I tried NOT to watch that gay ass show, everytime I flip through it, I see this show on, and I see just how bad they can mutilate cars. It's sad when they put ONE item in a trunk that's worth more than these cars. The newest "Most stolen car list" will be flooded with Pimp my Ride cars.

    "--and the 2005 Most stolen car is a....every piece of shit seen on MTV's Pimp my Ride!"

    For a car to look like that, I expect it to be running no higher than in the 13s.

    I just had a revelation.... maybe the reason why they don't do any performance mods is so if the car is stolen, the thieves can't make a quick getaway! :D
