i then said: "we had body by fisher and the rice burners have????"
the best response was "quick rice"
but some people said the term "rice burner" is a negative and i shouldn't use it
i thought it was only a class like muscle car, classic, pre 49, or one of the many other classes of hot rods.
please speak up and let me know what you think
we dont want to hurt anyones feelings about there car
we all love our rides or we wouldn't be on here.
Originally posted by caurnut76 I agree , No reason for any names . i myself drive and own a custom acura , Mild but custom and i still keep going . some people say that it's the people that talk trash without being able to back it up that has given rise to the name RICER ie...Stickered up huge wing and an exsaust that does nothing for power .I like the term tuners, it is the younger generation that will carry out the rodding. Some day when they are our age the new term may be flotters, don't even have wheels.
Import Tuners's back up what they talk . I KNOW i have nothing done to my car compared to MANY people. But I will never be a ricer , Because I like cars for the cars , NOT for the money ,sponsers (like any REAL car guy has any anyways)
"Women" <----yea like the girl in the bikini contest is going home with you) . Or posing like i have something i do not . I have a 1.8ltr high revving Honda engine that can push up to 1300 fw-hsp (race applications) and with a just a few K mine can hit 200+ with less than 2800 lbs .
But to each his own , let people think what they wanna think
and do as they want to do (as long as it doesn't hurt anyone)
And they're won't be any problems

I also agree with most of what you said too , but saying one car is a ricer over another is saying "this is not a real car" When i know people pushing 350 horses in their 1500 lb or less civics ( Do the power to weight ratio on that and see what it compares too)
But in any group of people are idiots that makes us all look bad , so let's talk and get it out there and learn from each other and ignore those types
