Reuben Houston's Nerdmobile

You've heard of MTV's show Pimp My Ride. The show has been such a tremendous hit for MTV that other networks are starting to copy the idea. The latest cable channel to join the wave?

Sci-Fi Network with their new show "Geek My Ride."

Instead of taking old clunkers and making them ghetto fabulous like the MTV version; the show will instead take a perfectly good new car and ruin it with GT logos. Looks like Reuben Houston was the show's first guest.

Note: This available for $48k according to the note forwarded to me from the Georgia Tech athletic department. No word whether it also comes with 4 tickets, 4 cokes, and 4 hot dogs.

That's actually a pretty sweet truck, to be honest.

Nathan, I really should've zoomed in on the hood. The cast iron bumble bee hood ornament is the funniest part of the entire truck.

It all makes sense to me now.

• You'd have to be selling tons of pot to afford a customized truck like that; and

• You'd have to be smoking tons of pot to customize a truck like that.

In other words, it's absolutely the perfect vehicle for a gentleman like Houston.

Starfleet bumper sticker, Jersey plates. Comedy gold. It has the capacity to hold 7 passengers, but only does that every other year.

"voligator" on the vent said....with a 3/4 ton suspension he can haul more weed.

I agreed with Nathan at first glance, but I had a feeling that hood ornament was bad news.

And, not to mess with the humor of the post, but if anyone wants a collegiate auto like this, go to American Specialty Trucks. They're based in Danielsville, GA. They have customized trucks for a bunch of Southern and Midwest schools including UGA, Bama, and Michigan. And for some reason, Fresno (the only west-coast school).

You sure that isn't on the Al Jazeera network?

Pimp My Ride is one of my favorite shows ever. Xzibit must smoke about eight pounds of weed before each show, but man does it pay off.

Sweet, hell! That's the nerdiest thing I've ever seen in my life. God! Just when you thought those Tech nerds couldn't get any nerdier.

You failed to show enough interior shots, however. The truck has a new Mac G-5 in the head rest with the latest versions of Adobe AND Quark XPress.

Anon - they wouldn't be using Quark. That's a graphics tool for people who are design oriented.

They'd be using AutoCAD.
