http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pimp_My_Ride is probably the insiration for the 
title. Interestingly, the Wikipedia article lists no controversies about their 
use of that title (only legal threats by Viacom against other businesses using 
the "Pimp my..." slogan).

Just to make sure, this isn't an attempt by someone who was involved in a GIMP 
name discussion to gather some leverage through the back door?
