Arghhh!!!

Is it me, or do most ricers have the same look? And I'm not talking the car, as we all know the kind of mods covered there.

I mean - do they all wear baseball caps, 80% wearing them backwards?

Are they all short? Or do they take the seats out of their car? Many times, their chin is even with the door sill, and they have about 18" of headroom. What's the point in that??

I see most ricers always have a buddy along - also with baseball cap on backwards. How come? Fiero owners are driving solo or with GF.

Do these guys also wear those baggy pants with the crotch down around the knees??

If it has tinted windows, I usually hear BOOMIN' BASS with all the door and body panels rattlin'... Don't they hear this or the distortion of the music??? Haven't they heard of SOUND DEADENER???

How come they always have a dumb look on their face after you blow them away in your Fiero??

Have you noticed any of these "Riceboy traits", or others you'd like to add???

I have noticed that if you pass one, and glance toward him that he will drive 10 miles past his exit just to get back in front of you. I guess that he just needs to feel superior and cant be out-done by an old plastic Pontiac.

I know that the majority of them around here look like that. I think the reason that they look so short is 'cause they lay the seat all the way back so they look "cool", but I'm not sure. I just don't understand.

They all look like that. You know sorta like a Fiero owner always has a smile regardless if it's a 4cyl, V-6 or V-8! The best expression I saw on a ricers face was when his wheel assembly fell off his car! He had the RWD wheels on a FWD car so that they stuck out 2 feet. The CV gave way and the entire assembly went left while the car went right. I'll never forget the look on his face. Looked just like a cat caught in the headlights of a car! LOL,LOL

Good point, Doc. And why would any sane individual want the world to see his underwear? And what's up (sorry. I meant, "Wazzup?!") with the spoked wheels? They look nice on an old Jag or MG, but not on a Honda Accord. Tons of chrome, too. Chrome looks good on a classic, but not on a Honda Accord. What's better than a ton of chrome? Apparently a ton of fake gold. And I see a bunch of them with chain drive wallets. I guess that's so they don't lose their money when...??? And why do they all "pimp step"??? The always have to look "baaaaad". Sorry, guys, but you really look stupid. (By the way, they're getting younger by the minute. I saw the same ricer look on a kid with a tricked out moped. I'll see if I can get a pic of the moped. Made me laugh until I cried!

What really looks cool is those chain-link licence plate borders. Ohhhhhh baby. Those things must be chick magnets!

MonkeyMan, heres one to go with your moped guy. I saw a kid on a lowered bicycle the other day. Even had white sidewall tires and some chain link stuff on it. Same clothing tastes as mentioned above. weaving all over the road thinking he was the coolest thing there is. He just about messed himself when he weaved in front of my F250 4x4, though. Wish I had had a camera to capture the look on his face. It was good, but not as good as that guy whose wheel assembly came off!

Gotta chime in here. I think the line between rice-boy and lowrider is getting pretty blurry here. At least lowriders have some type of legacy and history, opposed to the "euro" aka ricer look. I personally enjoy checking out a nice clean lowrider and respect the time and effort (not to mention cash) that goes in to turning out a nice clean lowrider. This whole bashing the other guy cuz they ain't us...maybe it's just me, but it seems kinda tired.

You know the things on a guys car you can’t stand and think are UG-AH-LY. (ugly)
Think about this, These guys, ready for this,
attract a certain kind of girl that likes that ugly modification.
Hummmm.
And they dig each other.
Hummmm.

And same thing with the clothes.
They attract the certain kind.

That's all I wanted to hear. That look will attract Ricer-girls. I'm finding me a good ball cap to wear backwards, baggy shorts, and "pimping" out my 85 GT. Look out ladies...

Each generation has their own trends, and each one laughs at the others, and they all have their cross-over area. I grew up in the early 80's, so that's my comfort zone (levi's, muscle cars, and MTV when they still played music). We cruised and posed, too. What's funny is half of the crap these riceboys do is so similar to the stuff my dad did in the 50's, like lights under the car, lowering, big pipes. Ever hear a flathead with smitty's and cans out back, or a 7X powered Hudson Hornet with duals? Talk about your wild sound!
Wait till they discover top-chopping again...

DRH--It's not the age. It's the miles. Sad to think that I'm not as once as I young was. (I guess the mind is the 1st to go. )

stimpy--I have nothing against a true lowrider (aka '50s leadsled, etc). I just don't like the ghetto look.

Ummmm, since you set it up on the tee for me boomer....

So you go out looking for empty-headed chicks in a stock Fiero?

(I didn'twant to do it, but they made me do it!!)

So Monkey, a 64 Impala or 70 Monte Carlo or even an 88 Cutlass isn't a "real" lowrider? A lowrider is a lowrider is a lowrider.

It's more the attitude than the year or type of vehicle that has changed. Some guys are too cool to take getting shut down in a little stoplight action. You never know when you'll get a gun pulled on you now. I think that's why so many cities have anti-cruising laws now. When I used to cruise, if you beat somebody, you pulled over in the next empty lot and talked about each other's ride, and came away with a new aquaintance.

Stimpy, I get your point. In my response I didn't mean to pick on the ricer style, just kidding about the herd mentality. It's definitely not limited to them, though. During my recent trip to Florida to see the in-laws, I got to see the rich "over 50" look on the beach: big, fat gut hanging over a thong speedo with a bypass incision scar on the chest covered by a gold snaggle-tooth necklace. Far be it from me to rip on them, either. Although my eyeballs are still trying to recover.

So far I haven't been able to detect the "fiero look". Pretty varied and individual bunch of guys. However, if there is a look I'm supposed to copy now, someone let me know!

Its all in an attempt to be cool. My friend has a pimped out 98 Escort... 4 door. He thinks its the greatest thing going. He isn't so concerned over the speed, or the actual car. It is white, with blacked out windows and that stick on chrome all over it. Around the doors, windows, wheel wells, big exhaust tip, booming system etc. etc. For what he spent on the car and mods, I would have gotten a 1 or 2 year old sport car... but its what he likes to drive. Its all an image thing. I am just glad I don't have to drive a car lookin like that!
