RE: Rice-boy type 44?

I never really followed the terminology because I always thought that it
was a bit offensive. I don't like people calling Japanese cars and bikes
"rice burners," either. But that's not a major issue for me.

I think it's cheesy to have stickers all over your car, whether or not it
goes fast. What constitutes excessive fog lights? My Pathfinder will soon
have a set of Hella 550 fogs and 500 driving, along with H4 main beams. Is
that excessive? :-)

Then again, the truck doesn't have stickers all over it. Stickers are
removable, though, unlike some horrendous paint jobs that I've seen.

Personally I've always associated cars that are "riced" with Japanese makes.
BUT, would it be fair to say that a car is riced when the exterior bragging
(ie muffler tips, spoilers, excessive fog lights, and oh yes, stickers)
aren't proportional with the car's performance abilities?
