Default New breed of Ricer?

I was on I355 last night heading home from Fry's Electronics (yay!), and there was this focus (08 2 door white).... totally stock looking.. BUT.. this guy put GTP stickers off a Pontiac on the sides and trunk... Thats worse than stickers! Plus he drove it like he stole it! I tried to catch up with him to take a pic of it, and I Was pushing 100 before I gave up trying to keep up..

Dunno. Maybe he's a closet GM fan but doesn't want to admit it.

Ricers are only Jap cars and a Focus is American so it doesn't count.

No, ricers are cars that are flashy, obnoxious, and slow. There are ricer Civics, Accords, Prote-gays(seewutididthar?), just as much as riced out Mustangs, Camaros, and Firebirds.

I can't tell you how many worthless riced out V6 Mustangs are out here in California. There are even GTs, Z28s, and TAs that I've seen completely mutilated and god-awful ugly.

As of 2009 i've heard they aren't making ANY in the US anymore..

That's shoddy business IMO. They're still marketing it as an american car

Ricer means rice which is associated with the Asian crap boxes.
