West Coast Customs’ Big Dane and Q
will be special guests at the show. The California custom auto shop was
made famous by the MTV show “Pimp My Ride,” in which West Coast Customs
transforms people’s old, beat-up cars into tricked-out rides. They’ll
display vehicles that they’ve modified, as well as merchandise for
sale, and will be available for autographs on both Saturday and Sunday.
Popular hip-hop personality DJ Skribble, often featured on MTV,
will spin and scratch his tunes for M2 attendees. And since Skribble is
also a car guy, he’ll talk cars as well as music. Another special guest
at the show will be Dave “The Fishman” Rivera of Fishman Audio. Rivera
is one of the premier audio installers in the nation, known for his ICE
(in-car entertainment), and has created some of the most outrageous
vehicles you’ve ever seen. The Fishman earned his nickname because he
might install an aquarium where the rear window was, or he’ll put fish
bowls (complete with live fish) where the headlights used to be. You
might even see Rivera’s new “Fishpedition” created for this show.
