Pimp your ride?

We often get emails from people thinking that we're somehow connected to a TV show. We're baffled by it, because I can't think of anything on the site that would lead someone to believe we work on any show. By far the number one show people think we're connected to is "Pimp My Ride," the MTV series where they take crappy cars and pimp them out with new paint jobs, killer sound systems, and TVs in the strangest places (really, who is going to go out to the garage and watch a TV in their trunk?).

Now I bring you the "Pimp My Ride" emails:

Bernard has sent the following email:
How do register to get my car pimped?

Sal has sent the following email:
My name is Sal and I have a junky car and I want to get it fixed up for my mother's Birthday and I wanted to do it through your show. You can contact my mothere at the email address, XXXXXXX@yahoo.com or mail me @ XXX ave. XXXX Fresno, CA XXXXX and our phone number is (XXX) 2X1-1XX2, ask for Regina. Thank you for your time and consideration
Sal

Richard has sent the following email:

Hi My name is Richard, I would like to congradulate you guys for the show "pimp my ride" . I think it's great what you'll are doing. I was wondering if you guys could help a vato out one time. I bought this old 71 leman pontiac, and is kind of rusted. I had plans to fix it up myself but with a 5 yrs. old daughter and being under pay is hard to do so. I'd always loved old cars and this is one of my favorite ones. I see myself in it cruisin the streets of my neighborhood clean clean feeling like a million bucks. thank you for your time and please send me your adress so I can mail you my car fliks and mines thanks again, by the way I live in the bay area, san francisco. peace...

how do you get your truck pimp out please let me know a 75 chevy is waiting

There are more, but those are just the recent ones. It's too bad the show wasn't called "My Pimped Car" and these people were offering to send me their pimped out car so they could get on TV.

Sorry, we're just doing the casting for "Yes Your Royal Highness," a new reality show where Dave and I each select a winner that gets to treat us like a King for a year. Anyone want to apply?
