I tend to associate 'pimped out' cars with drug dealers; like, it's supposed to be a symbol that the person isn't a 'shady' dealer but instead generates enough revenue to throw it away on decoration. I refute the notion that drug dealers are doing something intrinsically bad by the way; they're hardly different from psychiatrists or liquor store owners. I take it global warming won't be mentioned on Studio 360 today...
