    Pimp My Ride, Monster Garage, and Unique Whips were THEE car shows back in the 2000's. Before the days of Donut Media :) all we had was MTV and Speed Channel. But these shows were always so wild and kooky -- WHY?

                    Overhaulin was a different type of car customizing show.

                  Lol oh man I'm 36 and remember all these crazy ass car shows. It got to the point they were hard to differentiate because of the overwhelming abundance of similar shows coming out the same time

                                                      My favorite early 2000s show was the TLC show called Junkyard Wars (Scrapheap Challenge was the British version). You had 10 hours in a junkyard to build whatever the challenge was. And then the next day they would compete in the challenge to see who would win. It was an awesome show that showed a lot of innovative fabrications and engineering. Now my new favorite car show is Roadkill and Roadkill garage, from Motortrend.
