Pimp My Ride...

P.M.R. Door

Tom

If any of you guys watched MTV's Pimp My Ride car show last night, you might have noticed a kid named Tom representing éS pretty hard. He had éS stickers on both doors of his crappy-looking cop-themed car, and was also rocking a pair of the Accel, to boot.

The show's host, Xzibit, transformed the black and white atrocity into a blinging gold car, and added some unusual contraptions, like a flat bar rail that literally pops out of the rear bumper, and a video camera aimed out the back of the trunk toward the rail so he can film himself skating. (To get some sponsor me footage, I presume.) Needless to say, Tom is going to get a nice thank you package from éS for his awesome representation on last night's broadcast.

  5. Fianlly a skater gets on T.V. i watched that, It's kinda funny how they pimp the cars out with stuff that most people will never use. like the oxygen bar, .....cool,but kinda pointless thing that will probably end up getting in your way eventually.

  18. that was cool but i would rather have the cop car instead. itd sell the car and spend the money to pimp my skateboard, i'd get those new sparkely painted flip decks, then some chromed out trucks with hydros on em, and some spinners, and that tail devii spark thing. and the rest i would get another cop car. but with a rail in back, that was pretty cool. remound me of the hook ups van. haha!

    yabbo Posted: 9 years ago
  19. i just wanted to post how lame my local shop is. its owned by some lame rich skater dudes that go to my shcool. recently they had their emo band and their friends emo bands play inside the shop which is located inside the mall, and those posers as a scheme to get people to come by they posted posters before that koston would show up at a certain time to do autographs. i was suspicous at first but i went anyway to see what the hype was about. when i got there they had this guy that was impersenating as koston signing autographs for little kids. i couldnt stop laughing about how lame the scam was so i split.

    p.s. stop the koston piracy

  28. Hey, I have a quick unrelated question.

    What software/webscript do you use for this blog?

    Thanks.

    Jony Posted: 9 years ago
  29. I thought putting the rail on the bumber was a dumb idea. What if he hit the bumber, that would ruin the purpose of even pimping it. And it wasn't a very good designed rail.

  45. Shit, I haven't seen the episode yet. I'm sure MTV will play it 500 more times so I'll get to see it eventually. Oh and PJ is not going to DC. The best show right now on TV is Top Model...so classic!

    craig Posted: 9 years ago
  46. I saw that and thought it was pretty damn cool. Did anyone noticed how tom looked a little bit like P.J.? When i saw preveiws for this episode, I thought P.J. was going on the show to get his car pimped out.

    Eric Posted: 9 years ago

  73. Hey I just wanna say that I have the same style as PJ Ladd
    No body in my town could switch f/ flip and switch hardflip like me.I think that the es team shoul come to Calexico CA, near the border, there are the best skaters of the southside. And plus theres a 12 step and ledge that pj and koston would like to bust some tricks out. Seriously Iam not kidding. Thanks aks for danny if you come

    Danny M Posted: 9 years ago
  74. Notice that when pj 3 flips, his tail foot gives a complete turn like a 360.

  81. hi im tom and im homo..
    well not really but MTV made me realize that 'reality' isnt reality. when a tv. producer tells you that he picked you for your personality and then later while filming the show tells you not to be yourself and say this instead......you start to realize that TV(like i always said) is a load of crap.
    they used the gayest footage and made me skate this 2 inch bar down a fly box at a random skatepark in tarzana!

    but what do they know...haaha...they gave me a car!(suckers)= MTV

    but GOD has blessed me mucho and i hope HE blesses everyone else who reads this the same....

    im a douchebag sell-out,

  85. oh and to answer that MUNZY guy.... the front board on the car was actually 2nd try....i rolled up to it once and told them that i was gonna screw up the car if i did it...but they all insisted that theyd fix whatever, so i just stuck a little shanker and felt relieved.. that darn sticky car paint and bent flatbar was an easy was to mess things up.....obviously you can tell that by how much i just shanked the rail instead of actually sliding....they kept it for 3weeks after that and they told me they would detail it and re-paint the flatbar, but they lied and now i have to deal with it myself.......BUT ITS ALL GOOD.

    i suck

    tom\ Posted: 9 years ago
  86. haha thats sick you got hooked up though, and badass that your supporting es we dont get much attention down here on south padre island except for spring break YOOU SHOULDA CROOKED that motha fucker, haha that wuldve been sick i haven't seen the pimp my ride episode, but im sure ill see it eventually, keep skating tom l8s

    flipscout22 Posted: 8 years ago
  91. Ahaha, I saw it last night. They gave him a West Coast Customs complete without any griptape. I was like "what the hell"? And who needs a first person helmet or an oxygen bar anyway? I liked the old car better.

    Anyway, Tom (if you're still responding) or anyone else: what size deck does he ride? Just wondering.

    Eddie Posted: 8 years ago
  92. Yo representatives at es' footwear inc.!! You guys should hook me up just because im gnarly! I broke my foot and got crutches to walk with, but I only used them for three days skated 3 weeks later...... anybody else break their foot skating? I tried to kickflip this big ass barrel, I landed and slipped off then my foot bent to the side and all of my weight landed on it. The muscle in my foot got so messed up, their was like a huge lump and bruises everywhere.... well it sucked ass but I am better. To celebrate skating again, I got some sweet ass black/grey accels for $30.00 on some weird russian skate site... lol. well, peace out homies!

    P.S. Skate More! Yes'!

  97. That Tom guy is right, MTV is fake. FUCK MTV!!! I got a sharpie and wrote that on a shirt some how it magically disappeared.?? Hmm, maybe it was the same person who took my "Look Who's Ten -KTSU 1450 AM". Damn it!, that was my favorite tee. It had these three little kids on the front and on the back it had a turntable with birthday candles on it. It was from this college radio station in Oregon. Hey Tom since you drive a fake cop car, I am going to report those shirts missing maybe you could find out who the perpetrator is. Good Luck. : )

    anna l Posted: 8 years ago
