    Today I went off the deep end and bought a 1999 Dodge Caravan that was used in the super popular, early 2000s MTV show "Pimp My Ride." It hasn't really withstood the test of time though. At least it was cheap, right?

        That one geezer from Pimp My Ride, Mike I think? He used to just whack monitors anywhere, he didn’t give a fuck.

            117 horsepower from a 3.3 litre engine? How the hell do American enter makers get such low power outputs from such big engines?

                  So after you've managed to restore the car from what they did with it in the show "Fake pimp not even my car", you actually can have a really decent car.

                                                        I remember one Pimp My Ride had like a smoothie station in the back, I totally thought this was that van at first. Wrong, this van reminds me of a mom obsessed with Polly Pocket or something 😂😂 if y'all can find more old Pimp My Ride cars, please fix them up this is SO entertaining!

It was so bad when It was given to me, that the interior of the rotor was exposed, around the whole thing. Dont know how I was able to brake but somehow I didn't die. Grand caravans are trash tho lol mine had basically all the same issues yours did, only difference is I didn't see it worthwhile to fix up. Just isnt worth that much but then again my minivan wasnt a pimp my ride van lol
