    ok, as the title says, this is about rice... What to you guys is rice?

    I read somewhere that someone talked about how the 99 Civic Si was the king of the rice sreets or something. I am not quoting, just putting the basic gist of what was said in there.

    Due to that thread the post was in, I came to the realization that maybe some people have no idea what rice is. I for one am confused as to what it is.

    I cannot define what the word "rice" means when it comes to imports or any other car for that matter. But I always pictured huge useless wings, stickers of products that are not even in or on the car, bodykits that kill the original lines of the car, etc... Am I wrong?

    I mean when I think of Civic Si from 99 I think of a car that was in the top of its class, basically the sport compact car class. It was a two door coupe, not overly stylish, clean lines, nothing gaudy, and it had a pretty decent motor. VTEC is not everything for sure, but it is a nice little add in.

    Can someone shed some light?

    I just wish there was one fixed meaning to it.

    ok been to that site before, and I agree. But calling a car rice because it is an Asian car is just wrong.

    I own a Prelude, and I wouldn't trade it for anything of equal or lesser value. I have wanted one for years, and now I have one.
