    rice=asian cars and motorcycles, it isnt a bad term really

    now ricer is a term or state of mind brought on by watching to many fast and the furious movies, it is a bad term. Ricer can be anybody with any kind of car. Their are a lot of Domestic ricers who care more about the looks of their car than the performance. "YO DAWG LOOK AT MY NEW UNDERGLOW"

    1998 eclipse gst

    okay guys i can admit on one part... i do not believe the evo or sti should have EVER been made a 4 door... lol.. dont know why they came out with that. also, i had a question.. why is it that motorcycles are rice?? i didnt know there was anything wrong with them?? i mean.. the closest thing american ever got to a sportbike was the buells... and next to that, a harley POS! i will say, my buell was fun to ride yes i owned a 1200cc buell. but it was waaaaay under par technology, handling, power delivery, and lookswise to any japanese bike out there. i am not tryin to spark an argument, i just would like to know how something of such high quality and craftsmanship could be called rice?? lol.. i mean come on guys be reasonable... is it cuz of the sound?? or the fact they are jap bikes? or is it the four banger part...i am just wondering?

    my girlfriend has a 96, maybe 98 eclipse (i dont remember the exact year) and its got about 200,000 miles on it and the worst problem she has ever had was an annoying screetching sound coming from her belts. her dad took like 4 tries at fixing it and it was fine. shes also been in 2 accidents in it, and it drives perfect. nothing wrong with it.

    im not takin sides with rice, just pointing out that there are good and bad apples to every batch of cars.
