Here it is, our very own Ricer thread. Any ricers or crazy abused cars you see on the road, post it up here so we can laugh and discuss.



Ricer: from the latin word Ricarius meaning to suck at everything you attempt)

A person who makes unecessary modifications to their most often import car (hence the term "rice") to make it (mostly make it look) faster. The most common modifications are (but not limited to):

- Huge exhaust that serves no purpose but to make the car louder
- Large spoiler on the back that looks like something Boeing made for the 747
- Lots of after-market company stickers they don't have parts from, but must be cool
- Expensive rims that usually cost more than the car itself
- Bodykit to make the car appear lower, usually accented with chicken wire
- Clear tail lights and corner signals
- A "performace intake"- a tube that feeds cold air to their engine usually located in areas of excessive heat (behind or on top of the engine)
- Most of these riced cars (a.k.a. rice rockets or rice burners) are imports; Honda Civics, Accords, Integras, CRXs, RSXs, Del Sols Mitsubishi Eclipses, Lancers, Subaru Imprezas, however there are some domestics such as Chevrolet Caviliers, Dodge Neons, Ford Focus; small, slow, economy cars designed specifically to go slow. Please note that some Supras, Skylines, WRX's and other higher performance imports are designed to go fast, and are therfore not always considered rice. It really depends on the severity of the case.

Haha yeah it's awful. I'm forced to take a picture of these cars now because I want to show the world the horror.

If I sat on south Main Street in Worcester, and Legacy sat in East Boston for a day each, we'd have 10 pages of images to post lol.

Forgot this one near my office a while back. Rims are nice, but painted one of the worst colors he could have picked:

The rear fascia is clearing waiting for the fart can he's on his way to Autozone to pick up.
HAD picked up :) - Thing sounded like a lawn mower running over a traffic cone. He had it set in underneath the bumper and you couldn't see it.
