The term "ricer"

Ok now this word cracks me up cause its so misused now...

ricer originated from rice burner talkin about motorcycles then muscle cars used it to make fun of ALL imports then imports changed it to making fun of of guys to do things to their cars that they think makes them faster and now adopted into tacky...

wireloom, altezza taillights, steelies, body kits, big wings, underglow, hood scoops, stickers, big tachs etc are all considered "ricer"

now ive been to a few shows in my day and watching and listening to a car that has stock paint or rust on it or faded messed up paint, lowered on some stock or 16 inch wheels making fun of a car with a full body kit, clean nice paint, 20" wheels, custom sound system, aftermarket head lights and tail lights that knows he is a "show car" not fast.. makes the first guy look ricer as hell

basically most arguements ive seen of "rice" you can use on the jdm style show style and everywhere inbetween unless your import is stock lol

to me the driver makes the car rice or not... in the end its a lot of jealousy\

so ppl just need to get over this word and let it die...

whats yalls take?

Personally, I've always seen it as a racist term--trying to insult the primarily Asian owners of import vehicles back when modification of the cars was spearheaded by mainly Asians. It's use spread after that as just another name to be calling someone.

I think it started as "rice boy" and then became "ricer" for "rice boy racer"

we all know that guy..........big wing, awful body kit normally still in primer 2 years after the install or atleast different colors, lots of neon and stickers (i mean stickers are worth between 5 and 2000 hp depending on the type just in case you didn't know), and lastly and most important drives like a total idiot and tries to race anything on the road but mainly semi trucks and horse drawn wagons.

I can go at this all day.......

yes but in your eyes... does he have to have it all or does one part make him one... cause a lot of these "jdm" cars have stickers and some pretty dumb ones if you ask me

this is why ive kinda gone to its the driver... guys who are proud to run 14.5 in the quarter mile, proud to have just over 200whp... think "jdm" means lowering your car, 15" wheels (to be lightweight and faster), and lip kits that werent originally offered for the car stock is just as ricer as the guy with big wing for mad downforce yo

This JayDM crap is so played out it's not even funny. I'm working on something that I see as the next big thing.....basically if you want to be cool and ahead of the trend you need to be looking at old school imports.

I don't really use the term anymore. Its kind of like when you hear your mom quote a Lil Jon song, you know its played out. Now I just look over cars that aren't in my personal taste. Not bashing them, I just accept the fact to each his own.

The thing I HATE, is when people talk about making domestics "respect" imports. When I hear that kind of talk, I pretty much stop listening. To me it says "Look at me, I love attention!" Which pretty much turns off my brain to further conversation.

I think what is meant by "respect" from domestics is what you stated in your first paragraph...

I laugh when i see cars with V8HAHA or IEATV8S. I've had tons of imports and prolly will own quite a few more but if I took the money you spent on modding your whatever it maybe and spent it on a V8 you'd be looking at my tail lights. I mean it's cool to mod a 4 cylinder don't get me wrong but at the end of the day there simply isn't a replace ment for displacement not to mention RWD is the only way to go (other than AWD of course)

I don't think so. Sure I like domestics, but regardless of what the car is, if I think its clean/fast/unique I will say so.
