Let's lose the term "Rice"
OK folks, as I said in another thread, I think using the term "Rice" in a derogative sense is pretty offensive and unfair to Japanese cars in general. We need a suitable term to describle sad crappy looking cars with no style that doesn't suggest that all sporty Jap cars are bad. Come on then!! thumbsup rice

^^ I think "Rice" sounds like it's having a dig at all Jap cars to be honest, but maybe that's because I'm not used to hearing it over here.
I'm not getting on my soapbox or anything, just thought it would be funny to come up with a better, more descriptive term grin

OMFG I had to post this one grin

well, i know a couple of "krylon sponsered" cars, and some "auto zone racing team" members. cracks me up. Damn GT-R Cavalier's and such. It's not a japanese car thing, it's a wanna be thing. i know more neons to be "riced out" than imports around here. where stickers add horsepower. and nopi is plastered all over malibu's with "stadium seating" wings.

Honestly, we accept wings as OK and stylish. But on a practical note they do nothing for a front-wheel-drive car, even on a track. So it just depends on you definition of rice.


300,000 KM/Sec. Its not just a good idea, its the law.
