    I think this is appropriate here.
    "its okay to make your car look good. its okay to make your car go fast. its NOT okay to make your car LOOK like it GOES FAST."

    I almost live my life (well, my truck customization life) by these words. I started on the inside and am moving out. Once the computer was done, I painted the interior (riceboy trick) and put in new carpet. now I'm working on sound. The next step is exhaust (not just a tip, that would be ricey) and then engine mods--chip, intake, supercharger. After I finish engine mods, THEN AND ONLY THEN will I start on the outside of the truck--rims, airbags, hood, shaved handles, etc.

    At some point I will buy a ricemobile, but it has got to be rear-wheel drive and preferably mid-engine. I'll bolt on a bunch of crap to the engine FIRST, then interior, then exterior. This will be a semi-sleeper until I mod the exterior.

    After that movie everyone in the parkinglot was peeling out (or at least, trying to).

    Yeah, my favorite part of the movie also had to be the Charger, muscle cars > rice.

    Cool

    It's funny. I just watched that movie again Friday night. You sort of have to take it with a grain of salt. Sure, it's totally techically inaccurate (Motec exhaust, NAWS, etc...) but it's entertaining at least. But I think it has had some seriously negative effects on the "import scene" (and I say that with tongue in cheek...I hate the expression "import scene) which will last for quite a while. I know that after the FATF came out, the number of Hondas running around with Altezza's and fart tips multiplied exponentiallly. That's all well and good, but I'm very tired of being picked on at every intersection by some ricer and his girlfriend. It's not worth the gas it takes to race these people. Oh well, hopefully it'll only be a fad...

    I'm sure you smoke 'em with 700 HP, huh Aaron?

    That would be funny, I should put together some old piece of crap, but I could burn people at the stop light.

    Question

    700HP?

    I've been thinking of getting a 454 and dropping it into a Civic CRX....Just to teach the ricers a lesson. A rusted out CRX can be found for $50, and a 454 is available at any scrap yard w/transmission for around $300 (at least in my area)...A little welding and fab work, and you have the ultimate sleeper...Or even better than a CRX, a Chrysler Aries or something...

    Yeah, I thought you said your engine was 700HP after you put in the new intake.

    And no, I was thinking more along the lines of like an old Rusted out Lincoln with a huge *** Japanese engine and all the extras, but all of the intakes and stuff hidden. And make it extremly quiet too.
    You could pull up to the stop and just act like a nerd, but then smoke 'em.
    My shop teacher as a El Camino all souped up that can smoke anything, its cool as hell to hear him pull out of the parking lot.

    Aaron: you want to teach them a lesson?? Go get a Ugo and make it fast!!! heh, that would be so damn funny. Maybe even a Dodge Omni would work too.

    The rice boy page left me laughing for hours. Some of those cars in the hall of shame are funny.
