So I am at the local Home Depot buying a few more pieces of siding for my garage residing project and when I come out to load up the van I find this parked next to my van



All it needs is a big wing, 22' tires, a fart-pipe and some neon and the ricers would love it.

Bonus points for anyone who can tell what make of pickup it is..

I guess you could never lose this thing in the lot or just imagine taking it for a oil change.. "what color is your truck".. "why it is ...."

It's a Mazda. And IhadAPheo, in the midst of all the sarcasm you forgot the greatest source of power for a ricer, the stickers.

Actually that is most definately an Isuzu pickup, circa 1990-95 or thereabouts. Gotta admit that it is cool looking. Old cars are fun b/c you can pretty much do anything with it.

we have a winner (almost) it is a 1989 Izuzu, according to the registration sticker,

I just love how the orange looks like it was color matched to the home depot colors.

And it does ahave a sticker of sorts..

Speaking as someone who really likes "ricers" I need to say:

A "ricer" is a foreign built car...specifically, it's one of those little honda civics or acuras or whatever (they finally figgured out how to reproduce) the pollute the street. They typically have a ton of stickers, as LY744 said. Usually about 2" from the ground, tons of neon lights, and are sometimes driven by punk-ass teens who think they've got the baddest ass ride. Also, an exhaust pipe that you could probably stick your head in, it's a damn coffee can. Basically, it's all show, no go.....the little 4 cylinder dudes with NOS think they can take sheer horsepower....here's a diagram to explain more.



I think Delta767300ER (another Camaro man) and myself can prove that ricers, well, SUCK!!!!!

In other words, pretty much what everyone else in the WORLD drives (without the stickers or huge exhaust though - except in Essex).

I think Ricer is used more to describe the "pimped out" little asian junkers. Granted, most don't pimp their hondas, but those who do, get the ricer designation. A Chevrolet, Ford, etc, for example, would be a classic American car...

Not quite, JGPH. While the make may be what many people drive, it's the modifications that make a ricer. The low-clearance, the neons, the useless spoiler. Merely having an Asian car doesn't make one's car a ricer, it needs to be have enough flashing lights to induce epileptic seizure or acid flashbacks. My Hyundai Sonata, for instance, is not a ricer. The cars in "The Fast and the Furious," however...

This weekend I saw a perfectly good (and seemingly brand new) 350Z totally riced out...complete with front and back wings (quite an achievement). There was not a single panel on the car that had not been modified in some hideous way--including a huge egg crate grill painted to match the purple body...

I was gonna buzz them and fly past...but wouldn't you know...the freaky little thing was DAMN fast.

Oh well..not a huge fan of 350's anyway...but no car deserved that!

And to think my ego got bruised too.......f*ckers!

ScottysAir, HUH????? Can you clarify your post?

DeltaGuy, Yep both of us can prove that ricers suck! The thing I hate the most is their shitty fartpipe exhaust. They absolutely sound like crap!!!!! They sound like weedeaters. Lets pay $10,000 for a Honda Prelude, then put $5,000 into it and still not be as fast as a Camaro/Trans Am or Mustang.

A ricer is ANY car, foreign or domestic, which gives a false impression, in other words, all show no go.

I've even seen a riced out Hummer H1, it had stickers, stupid looking rims, and a WING on the top, just unbelievably stupid.

Ricers are most commonly teens with cheap little 4 banger cars, like Civics, Cavaliers, etc, which throw on a bunch of crap to their cars, like wings, clear lights, rims, fart pipe, etc, and think they're the fastest and coolest things on the road.

Just the other day I was riding in a friend's/co-worker's Dodge Durango with a lovely 5.2 V8 (Dodge's famous 318), and we pulled up next to a Corolla I believe, which had a huge wing, it was lowered, and it had about 4 NOS stickers on it. We sat there and kind of chuckled at the stupid little car. The light went green, and this little teenage ricer floors his tiny 4 cylinder, only to stop about 700ft ahead at another red light. WOW, race to the next red light! Moron. Anyway after the next red light went green, my friend gives the 318 some gas and we jump ahead of the ricer with no problem, we could hear him trying to catch up, so my friend gave it more gas and he just fell back behind more, not really even a race for us.+

Ah, good times at lunch break, reminds me of my teenage years when I always killed ricers with my old Blazer.  Smile

While I agree with you guys about "ricers," who are (as have been described) teens driving mainly second-hand Civics and putting a muffler and cheap ass 18" wheels, etc...

There is another term that the mainstream society does not understand because one, they choose not to and think that just because someone drives a Honda, and its modified, then they are a ricer...and two, because of display of ignorance in not exploring and educating yourselves. The term I am implying is J.D.M. (Japanese Domestic Market) which indeed it's the way that things are done in Japan. JDM is not well known, specially to all these idiots, because it is extremely expensive to get your car to be "JDM." I have a 2000 Accord purchased in the USA, but the only thing that can be labeled as an "American Accord" would be the chassis itself. The engine, interior, wheels, etc...is Japanese...and no, I don't have any stickers or christmas lights, (that being the other thing that differentiates a tastefully done, JDM ride). Anyways, I figured this would be an appropriate post to bring out this subject and maybe let you guys know that just because someone drives a Honda and it's modified, that they aren't necessarily a ricer...and oh yes, I will take my car against any Mustang.

Yes we all know that though. We're not making fun of foreign cars which are modified for performance, that's perfectly fine because it isn't rice, it's actually modified for a good purpose.

Most everyone anti-rice is not anti-import.
