Just call him the pimpinator
GOVERNOR TAKES BIODIESEL PUSH TO `PIMP MY RIDE'
By Kate Folmar MediaNews Sacramento Bureau Article Launched: 04/10/2007 01:34:25 AM PDT
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is hooking up with the MTV reality show "Pimp My Ride" for a special Earth Day episode that he hopes will boost the street cred of low-emission cars.
Typically, the program features everyday people who have their trashed rides tricked out into bling-mobiles with built-in espresso machines or lava lamps. But for this episode, the crew will transform a 1965 Chevy Impala into a clean, green biodiesel machine.
Efforts to reduce global warming and build a hydrogen highway helped parlay Schwarzenegger to an easy re-election last fall. But putt down the 405 Freeway in a Prius? That's not how the gov rolls.
The April 22 episode of "Pimp My Ride" will show that "biofuel is not like some wimpy, feminine car, like a hybrid," Schwarzenegger said in the current Newsweek cover article. "Because the muscle guys, they have this thing: `I don't want to be seen in the little feminine car.'"
The show will also highlight Galpin Auto Sports in Van Nuys. Its owners, the Boeckmann family of the San Fernando Valley, are generous political donors who have given more than $150,000 to Schwarzenegger and his causes over the years.
As an actor, Schwarzenegger helped popularize the uber-macho, gas-swilling Hummer. These days, the governor doesn't drive much; the California Highway Patrol ferries him around.

My bad! I saw pimpinator and thought Slick Willie.
Not a lot of difference! They both love to play grabass and are married to radical socialist DemonicraTICK wives!!!
Just call him the pimpinator.
Well, OK, if you say so. It does sound kind of appropriate.
Damn, but you’re fast!
“the crew will transform a 1965 Chevy Impala into a clean, green biodiesel machine”
I’ll probably put on at least 4 times the miles/year than his pimp machine in my 65 PU and make up for his reduction many times over!
Go to it you pimp sucker!
Ah, there he goes again. Endearing himself to the female population. lol
“Pimp My Ride” just “jumped the shark.”
“Just call him the pimpinator.

You can say that again. Arnold has pimped himself out to the left alright.
“...”biofuel is not like some wimpy, feminine car, like a hybrid,”
I’m so relieved that it’s not for one of those “girly-men’s cars”...
