Street Customs motors onto TLC this fall

west coast customsStreet Customs, a new series for TLC set in West Coast Customs in Corona, California and starring owner Ryan Friedlinghaus, will hit TLC Thursdays this fall.

Friedlinghaus started West Coast Customs in 1993, and the business eventually became a phenomenon, raking in over ten million dollars and building custom cars for many famous people. The company is also opening shops in Moscow and Dubai.

TLC scheduled Street Customs for Thursday nights to fit in with similar fare like American Chopper, American Hotrod and Wrecks to Riches.

This sounds like it could be a good series, and given the success of the other shows aired during "Turbo on TLC," I'm sure it will do well.

MTV "tarnished" their image? I'll bet the truth is West Coast Customs simply wanted more money, and creative control. So they decided to leave Pimp My Ride and have a new show developed that would focus solely on them. Nothing wrong with that, frankly.

I'm so glad this show is finally getting a general date for it's premiere. Around the time when Pimp My Ride began using GaS as it's garage the guys at West Coast Customs posted an update on their website about the show. Saying that they are doing a new show for TLC that is better than what they did on MTV, and that they left MTV because it somewhat tarnished their image and didn't let them show off what they were capable of.

So this is the fate of the West Coast Customs crew after Pimp my Ride! Yay for them, PMR has gone downhill since they switched to that new garage.
