West Coast Customs (featured on Pimp My Ride on MTV) was fined $16,000 for removing airbags to replace them with DVD monitors!!! LOL
Personally, i find this funny for a number of reasons:
1. Pimp My Ride, although hilarious, SUCKS! I'd rather scrape my left eyeball with a dull butter knife than give them the ugliest yugo i could find so they could pimp it out. The show might not be that bad if they actually made the car look better, but give me a break, on one show they put a rotating shoe rack in the trunk of some chick's caddy.
2. DVD monitors placed all over the place on ANY car is lame. One or two, OK, ten, NO!!!
I know there are a ton of loonies out there who like this sort of stuff, but i can't think of a much lamer thing than putting a DVD monitor UNDER the car (yes its been done, and i've seen it over and over).
3. BLING BLING!!!
Alright, enough ranting, here is the link to the news story.
