I agree about the ricers but the 5th gen Prelude was actually a nice little car in its day....

JDM cars have exhausts on one side, where do you see JDM exhausts in the middle?

Mini coopers have center exhausts, Porsches have Center exhausts.



Awesome car here

Love it. Minus the wing and aluminum shielding on the exhuast so the bumper doesn't catch fire, I would like one please.

To you, they are "Ricers." But to them, you are "Cocksters."

Class warfare, it'll never go away.

Best thing to do is just look the other way. People like that get more frustrated when you simply ignore them. It means they aren't worth your time or attention.

Agreed.. Ignore the morons and stupid kids.. Not worth it..

Sad to say though, words like this fall on deaf ears with 'some' (not saying all) of the (obviously) younger posters..

Ricer is, as was described in th e1996 website that defined the term, a slow economy car with stickers and parts designed to LOOK fast. It's not an actual fast car. Even if the car is a civic, if it's a real performance/race car with serious mods, it's not a ricer.

Remember, ricers were copying real race cars and real performance cars with their mods. Lately it seems too many people seem to think that even the cars the ricers were trying to look like are rice because they have parts that ricers used (or copied), like functional wings and racing exhausts.

Slow cars trying to look fast are rice. Fast cars trying to look slow are sleepers. Fast cars that also look fast are not rice.

hate to break it to you guys but this one *is* a photoshop, that has been hanging around the web for a decade. Poorly done with rough clone stamping for the wing, wheels, and even exhaust. Look at it carefully:

whose he? we were going 40, im guessing the guy in the prelude was going 35, then suddenly floored it :/. the m3 accelerated to 55 or so.

After a red light, we begin to accelerate from the light. Moving along, we started to hear this little fly buzzing sound pulsating. We look around and its the guy next to us. tapping the gas pedal with his passenger glaring at us. For fun, my friend downshifts from 7th gear to 3rd. next thing we knew the guy took off and so did we. Obviously, we instantly flew past him. In front of us was a car and a red light, and we were going to turn right at the intersection so we slowed down. Then he just pulls a successful ricer flyby whilst going into the left turn lane. All we heard was tin can exhaust and his V-TEC kicking in(literally). As we made the right turn staring back at him, he gives us the middle finger. We had a good laugh, but seriously, WTF is up with these people?

his car looked like this:
That car is far from ricer, maybe the attitude was but that car isn't ricer. When are these German car fucks going to realize just because it's a Japanese car doesn't make it rice.

What do we call those german car loyalist douche bags? Nazi's? Krouts? The ignorant ones that swear it's german or nothing?

Vtec? Considering it's variable valve timing dont take your anger out on vtec. Honda makes one of the purest sports cars ever built. It has VTEC yo.

Seriously. Thanks a lot, Vin Diesel.
And I've had a lot of Mustang GT douche bags think they stood a chance against my ricer.

Fart can = CHECK!

The difference is that your car has serious engine work done, whereas theirs did not. Your car is not a ricer for this reason. I've been impressed with it ever since you posted it a while ago.

FYI, I'm not a Mustang supremist or anything. I only mentioned it because that is WHY they were trying to race me.

I don't know why but I really really really want to get a prius or yaris and rice the shit out of it. Drive it around and some kid in a stang would, well you know, want to race me. I'd just know I have a M at home to smoke him. (which I wont for safety reasons) I find it really really odd/funny how all people in ricers or people with fartcans always gives us the middle finger.
