Ricer - any person who spends more money to make their car look like it goes fast than they spend on actually making it go fast. (Sometimes without spending money, with disgusting results)

mfw I see one of those cars and what they sound like.    
   
one sounded so bad I thought it was a 2 stoke moped missing an exhaust  until it turned the corner. It just got even better when he floored it.

Their needs to be a rescue shelter for these car's. I don't mind people doing some proper Decal work or even some two tone paint jobs but what is the purpose of an exhaust this size? What purpose?
User avatar #11 to #9 - firehippie ONLINE (04/08/2014) [-]
maybe to cook popcorn?
i've seen to many of them with fat can mufflers. Not exactly my type of cars but I know if they are done right they can look and preform great, but most of them are just godawful

Trust me i know, but cars like this make it worth while. Insurance though....It's impossible

Celicas aren't actually to slow for a 1.8 NA I4
User avatar #17 to #15 - pointblankhits (04/09/2014) [-]
1.8L engine at the age of 18, My insurance quote just today was nearly 4000 euro
#18 to #17 - jackmonkijackmonki (04/09/2014) [-]
Sorry to hear that. I have one in my family so I just thought I'd tell you. In America the insurance for it isn't to bad to be honest.
User avatar #20 to #18 - pointblankhits (04/09/2014) [-]
It's a nice car to drive, Its not to fragile either. You drive it much? I think it was expensive because of age more then the make of the car
#21 to #20 - jackmonkijackmonki (04/09/2014) [-]
No actually I don't. It's my sisters. I drive a 2007 Tibruon. Just a 2.0 L I4. No power but it looks good, but the insurance is super high.
#25 to #21 - pointblankhits (04/09/2014) [-]
Yea there's one or two guys in my town that have Celica's and they swear by them. Tibruons are nice man, they can be geared up nicely
#30 to #25 - jackmonkijackmonki (04/09/2014) [-]
Haha thanks man! Most people don't think so, but I'm happy with it!!

As in fear for your ******* life when coming to speed bumps I could have edited it out but it would have ****** everything up if you get me
User avatar #1 - friedgreenpomatoes (04/08/2014) [-]
Sorry but as someone more into hot rods than tuners, I have no idea what the purpose of the dustpan on the Speedhunters car is, besides appearance. And, quite frankly, it just looks silly.
User avatar #2 to #1 - pointblankhits (04/08/2014) [-]
I'll admit, it's kind of a Ricer. I'd love to hear their reason for it though
User avatar #3 to #2 - friedgreenpomatoes (04/08/2014) [-]
Well, not so much a ricer as a trailer queen. The build quality at least looks decent, which disqualifies it from being a ricer.
User avatar #4 to #3 - friedgreenpomatoes (04/08/2014) [-]
Actually it'd have to be a trailer queen, because enjoy driving on anything less smooth than the Autobahn with that thing at the front.

Kind of like a folk art piece maybe, I don't fancy his chances trying to make it up even slight inclines
#6 to #5 - friedgreenpomatoes (04/08/2014) [-]
Yeah. Still, I prefer hot rods overall due to the fact that tuners just look gaudier overall in comparison.

Pic semi related, it's the winner of the 2012 Ridler Award. Just look at dat shaved body.
#8 to #6 - pointblankhits (04/08/2014) [-]
That's a beauty of a car, Somebody has taken good care of it. I'm more broad with the cars i like, Tuner scene can have a lot of douches. I am partial to Skylines and Evo's though
#10 to #8 - friedgreenpomatoes (04/08/2014) [-]
I'm personally partial to old Celicas and Supras. The cleaner and smoother they look, the better.

And Ridler award cars have to be pristine. Qualification is very simple. It has to be able to move under its own power, and it has to never have been shown before the awards ceremony.

It's not immune to outrageousness, either. The 2008 winner was a Rambler powered by a Ferrari 458's V8.

My cousin owns a Celica pre-2004 change up, It's a serious car and fairly cheap in Ireland but just try being 18 and getting insured in a jap import for under 3000 euro

That car looks like something out of Kounts Kustoms. It's seem's like an expensive scene to be on?
#14 to #12 - friedgreenpomatoes (04/09/2014) [-]
[whoops, it was actually a '02 360 Modena engine]

It was actually made by a Mike Warn, just for the competition, though it can clearly run. And Ridler Award cars are hugely expensive. Many winners push towards or even past $1 mil. I've never heard of any non-American cars winning it, though.

Pic unrelated, it was never in the award competition. It's simply a badass 'Stang called the RTR-X that blurred the line between hot rod and tuner.

Now that's a nice car my friend I have a dream of owning a Dodge 69 Charger
User avatar #22 to #16 - friedgreenpomatoes (04/09/2014) [-]
And if you want the cream of the crop, the Daytona/Superbird, they usually require ~$200 thousand and a virgin sacrifice.
User avatar #19 to #16 - friedgreenpomatoes (04/09/2014) [-]
I'd wager I should say good luck getting that mighty Greenpeace-offending V8 past customs. Or affording it. Mopar muscle cars are also quite expensive. A good quality 2nd-generation [1968-1970] B-body Charger costs around $20 to $50 thousand dollars. And if you want a Hemi, they cost as much as a new Maserati.

A guy i met at a show bought a general lee style Charger for 20,000 euro, Not bad considering the show dukes of hazzard destroyed about 300 of them
User avatar #24 to #23 - friedgreenpomatoes (04/09/2014) [-]
It was almost certainly a replica, not an actual show one. Most of the show Chargers were totaled by means of jump stunts, and the ones that did survive would require an extra zero before the decimal point.
User avatar #26 to #24 - pointblankhits (04/09/2014) [-]
Oh of course yea, The show car's are pieces of history. I'd be happy with an orange charger, What would you estimate the price on that would be? No ties to the movies or shows
User avatar #27 to #26 - friedgreenpomatoes (04/09/2014) [-]
Anywhere from $24,000 to $100,000, depending on year and clean-ness. I'd steer clear of anything less than that, it would probably have a lot of problems.
User avatar #28 to #27 - pointblankhits (04/09/2014) [-]
I don't mind doing a bit of work, there is a lot of mechanics in my family. And at about 30,000 dollars (averaged out) it would cost me about 21k which is reasonable. I have to ask, it seems like you know a bit about chargers? Are you a fan of the show
User avatar #29 to #28 - friedgreenpomatoes (04/09/2014) [-]
Just like cars in general, though I've seen a few episodes of The Dukes of Hazzard.
