Rice or Nice?

Ok so we've all seen those 'hotted up' little excels, hondas and lancers and so on. But we havent seen this sort of thing much in Aus.


It's got hydraulics, 20 inch chromies, lots of billet goodies and those clear tail-lights, not to mention the stereo. The body/chassis mods seem professional.

Is this just another form of rice or is the way modified cars should go?

Definate RICE...

Just my opinion, but I've seen better F150's around.

simple really.

we laugh at ricers mainly because of their complete lack of taste and self control in the application of useless and over the top modifications. further, ricers rarely mod the engine. all show and no go.

fair enough, it is his pride and joy, and he has spent some crazy $$$ to get it to this point, but sadly, this is rice.

You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.

I beg to differ on the "Rice".
It's not the type of thing that happens here, but it appears to be more common to dump a truck like that in the good old US of A.
A lot of work has gone into it and IF it's classed as "rice", well a lot of people here would also be classed as "Ricers".

My car is low, though not like the F150. I have seen a lot of low cars with beautifull BIG after-market wheels on this forum.

Are they "RICERS"?????????

You be the judge. (blind-folded and scales).

Just my 2 bob's worth.

I actually like the big fords going the other way.. UP rather then down. With bigger rubber and lotsa spotties. And the Americans do that very well too!!

Yeh its nice and original if it was here in australia, theres a few chevs here like that.

Nah....it's not rice. It's just different from what we see over here. Personally, it's too low to be practical but other people who are more into the F-Series trucks and Chevvys might beg to differ.

Hard to call it really IMO, a bit too low, though I suppose that is easily fixed with the press of a button.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

I think its pretty impressive and has obviously put a lot of work into it, not really the way I would go with modifying it but its pretty tough to call it rice.

I prefer to leave the rice tag to the people who put in little to no effort in modifying their cars. Such as the stickers, fluro coloured wipers and chopped springs all just to get a bit of attention.
