LOL, a whole Wikipedia entry on Rice-burners

And their respective names in other countrys, primarily the UK...who seems to like them just as little as us!

A little clippet:
Quote:
More contemporary use of the term rice burner, along with the prefix rice, has taken on an alternate pejorative meaning for an automobile that has been modified to give impression of high performance, but does not necessarily have any high-performance capabilities. This practice is in direct contrast to the "stealth" or "sleeper" style of automotive modification, where a vehicle may have major performance modifications, but the appearance remains similar to that of a stock model.

.......
Characteristics

  • Digital turbo, consisting of speakers installed under the car that emulate the sound of a turbo engine
  • A loud, free-flowing exhaust system with a large cylindrical resonator at the rear of the car, known as a "fart cannon" or "coffee can"

That is about the best definition I've seen yet. Complete, concise, and very true.

What is a 'Bumper Canard'?

I still like the scissor style doors myself.

Wow that is a funny article, the best part is the people dont feel that the article is "neutural" enough. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rice_burner

Quote:
The term "American rice", "domestic rice", or "wheat burner" has been used to describe American-made cars that have been modified as described, but simply calling them rice is also commonplace. Non-performance versions of the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro, with V6 engines, might be found sporting large spoilers, graphics, colored tint, or other strictly visual modifications. The Performance V8 versions of these same cars may also be considered rice if their visual style leans too heavily towards the stereotype of a rice car or Japanese tuner car.

They are also known as chin spoilers or front splitters.
