Ride." In it, a crew of automotive make-over experts from West
Coast Customs take an ugly old jalopy and turn it into a dream
Well, it seems cars aren't the end of the story. Now, the
producers are thinking about a show that the Dallas Morning News
says can only be called, "Pimp My Plane."
"We're in the process of talking to an owner. We've never done
an airplane, so we don't know the playground yet," said Tito
Arteaga, president of marketing and public relations for the Los
Angeles company, in an interview with the Morning News. "It's a
huge canvas to play with."
What might you expect from a show
like this? If past experience is any indicator, look for fancy
seats (the Morning News suggests alligator as an option), high-end
electronics, head-banging sound systems and colors that might glow
in the dark or turn your stomach -- or both.
"These are all based on the personality of the person. We sit
down with a customer and give them guidance of what might look good
for them," Arteaga told the Dallas paper. "What we do really
depends on the customer and the feel of the customer."
