    hahaha, it's always interesting to see how much money MTV will throw at their shows for ratings. Well, this latest PMR, they take a POS 1991 Ford Escort Hatchback, and basically turn it into an E36 BMW. New front clip, bumper, headlights, grill, hood, the whole works! Sad to say, the car turned...
