"Pimp My Ride" Palo Alto Style

While walking the dog during my recent stay in Palo Alto ... I spotted the bottom 2 inches of a bright pink car hanging out below a canvas car cover. Turns out it was "Big Bertha" a car that had been made over years ago on "Pimp My Ride"... a car show that Josh loves... and I find pretty cool myself. They take real trashy cars and redo them to fit the driver. In this case the driver was a 16 year old teenager... thus the hot pink, tv screens, and even a closet in the back. The owner was kind enough to uncover the car so I could take some pics. She said that the paint job looked almost purple in certain light. It was incredible.

I confess - "Pimp My Ride" is a guilty pleasure of mine (only when I am so tired I can't think straight!) Lucky you - I am always amazed by those cars. We'd see you coming if you were in that hot buggy!
