Default Alaska Rice

Due to popular demand, I've decided to start a thread for spotting and posting pictures of "ricers" that you see around the state. According to urban dictionary, a ricer is a person who makes unecessary modifications to their most often import car (hence the term "rice") to make it (mostly make it look) faster. The most common modifications are (but not limited to):

- Huge exhaust that serves no purpose but to make the car louder
- Large spoiler on the back that looks like something Boeing made for the 747
- Lots of after-market company stickers they don't have parts from, but must be cool
- Expensive rims that usually cost more than the car itself
- Bodykit to make the car appear lower, usually accented with chicken wire
- Clear tail lights and corner signals
- A "performace intake"- a tube that feeds cold air to their engine usually located in areas of excessive heat (behind or on top of the engine)
- Most of these riced cars (a.k.a. rice rockets or rice burners) are imports; Honda Civics, Accords, Integras, CRXs, RSXs, Del Sols Mitsubishi Eclipses, Lancers, Subaru Imprezas, however there are some domestics such as Chevrolet Caviliers, Dodge Neons, Ford Focus; small, slow, economy cars designed specifically to go slow. Please note that some Supras, Skylines, WRX's and other higher performance imports are designed to go fast, and are therfore not always considered rice. It really depends on the severity of the case.

Feel free to post any pics of ricers that you spot and I'm sure we'll all get some good laughs out of it!

Yeah I've randomly seen that Vette guy rolling around every summer for the past 4 or 5 summers. He's a head-turner fo sho... like watching a bad accident in the slowest of motions.

That vette lives just north of the natural pantry parking lot parked outside a garage. If anyone wants to sight see

It's been here for yeeeears. I always joked that the owner wished optimus prime had chosen a vette over a semi.

The owner of that Vette must have cleaned off the accessory shelves at O'Reilly Auto.

I've seen it before too. It truly does hurt the eyes.

From what i've heard, that vette is well known all over the country. I guess a lot of corvette forums make fun of him.
