My favorite was I walked by a Civic and I saw this huge 3rd party tachometer with a big ol' shift light on it. I looked inside and saw it was an... automatic? Why would you need a 3rd party tachometer w/ a huge shift light for an automatic?!

Instead of a Sticker that would add 5hp.. the Tach with the HUGe shift light added 20Hp you fool.. psh.. is basic rice tech man..!

[QUOTE=Clavius Curious if he'd suspect me if I left a box of RiceORoni on the hood of his car [/QUOTE]

Why not just leave a small note on his windshield and refer him to this site, and this thread AND this particula post...LOL. Then EVERYONE can rib him, haha.

But on a side note, I know he's probably pretty annoying, BUT, his car isnt that bad. I know, I know, its Geo with rims, BUT, it doesnt have a rear wing spoiler, an abundance of decals, and appears to be well maintained.

So I cant be TOO hard on him, but definately a test of acceleration somewhere on a desolate road could shut him up a bit.

Give him time he just might get the wing.. hell I'm sure he has thought of it. I dunno again I just can't respect that kinda waste in money. One thing to invest in a sound system into a shitty car hell I did that I paid $250 for my first car and put in about $500 into speakers and a head unit but thats entirely different from putting rims and um a aftermarket exhaust tip on it lol.. damnit now I miss my first car's system it puts the 8's to shame
(if anyone is curious... 2 front Boston Acustic 3 inch speakers, 2 Rear Kenwood speakers, and a box with 2 10" Rockford Fosgates in a 85' Dodge Aries Station wagon hahaha.. box was donated btw from a friend who got a Cadilac Escalade. I forget the RMS specs for the speakers sadly but they where the best between way to expensive and way to cheap.)

On my way to work this morning I was trying to get a pic of a Focus with a supra style spoiler that stuck up higher than the car, stickers all over it, dark tinted windows, and spinner hubcaps (I could't believe it either). I tried to get next to him to take a pic with my cell, but he thought I was trying to race him. I decided looking stupid racing a riced out Focus would not be worth the pic. Hindsite, wish I had gotten the pic.

Maybe he bought the rims cheap at Pep Boys or something. It does look a lot better than hubcaps. Especialy spinner hubcaps.

The only kind of Fucus a man is allowed to own if any is the SVT thats it 'nuff said. Sad thing is you know that kid is gloating to his friends "Oh man I beat this Mini-Viper today I didnt know Dodge made those..!"

any new pics? for a while there I was getting Rice cars like crazy (as you can tell) but for some reason they all must have broken down, because I just have not been seeing them lately. I kinda miss seeing them and trying to get good pictures.

Rice season must be out. I have not seen nearly as many funny rice cars as I was there for a while.
did find this one today though.

This was taken on the 30 in San Bernardino/highland/Redlands (what ever part of the freeway that is.

I saw a green cavilier today with yellow tinted windows, a 3 foot spoiler with superstreet stickers on it, and next to the bowtie on the trunk he put "elegante by TYC". oh yeah, fart can as well. I thought to myself, you should swerve at this guy so he flips his car and wrecks it.

worst i have seen up here in DFW - was some old honda hatch that was a single exhaust setup to look like a dual. - i.e this person cut a hole in their body kit stuck a pipe in there. How could I tell? one pipe had actual exhast coming out the other was shiny and clean *** could be.

Runner up was a mercury cougar with two HUGE universal fart can exhausts coming out the back in an angled up fashion. looked like *** turning a single muffler car into a dual muffler... pffft

Maybe we can install miniguns in our 8's so when we see rice, we hit a button and they slide out and we can take care of them the proper way...

it wasn't, and still does not matter. a wal mart wing does not belong on a spec v OR the regular sentra.... at least these people give me something to take pictures of.
like that Yellow RX-8 witht he blue graphics.
