16: “Mad Mike” Martin
One of the most notable fabricators on the “Pimp My Ride” was “Mad Mike” Martin. Growing up in Compton, he had a taste for lowriders and California style. As the lead fabricator at West Coast Customs, he would often get into shouting matches with Ryan, the founder. After the demise of ‘Pimp My Ride,’ Mad Mike has kept himself busy with several projects.
In addition to still keeping gainful employment at West Coast Customs, he has continued to cultivate a personality in the automotive world. His keen design sense is something that most people look for when it comes to creating a custom vehicle. His hands-on sense of personalization built some of the most memorable rides on TV.
