(my Ram was $36k over 3.5 years ago)

Just noticed, most of us referring to Asian built cars as ricers are 50+ years old,
guess slang terms have different meanings depending on what generation your'e from.

all in good fun though

main point is a slow ass truck can be made to run with the sports cars...

But "Made", not Bought!

and 100% built by my own hands

I also noticed the ages, lol. All in good fun is right. You've built a very nice truck! I totally know what you mean by beating cars or whatever with something that isn't expected to be fast. Had similar experiences in my Talon and my last truck (Cummins). Good times!

Ricers were called ricers long before most of you were born. At one time Americans still felt the affects of Pearl Harbor and didn't like the idea of having Japanese autos and bikes sold in America. Vietnam veterans and especially bikers gave Americans a piece of their mind about it. Patriots expressed their feelings and made statements, some like bikers by hanging and burning Jap bikes and destroying cars (ricers) for fun at exibitions. That's when and why the name ricer started, not because they were slow. Kids today that call them ricers have no idea where it came from and why. It's nothing to do with it looking like a fart can with a go wing.

...just for the record, I dont have issue with Japanese built

I picked a Honda VTX for a cruiser almost 10 years ago, and still have it today
Despite a lot of harassment and taunting from the guys I ride with ( Group of 10, all Harley's )

I bought it because it was cheaper (half the price of a hog) faster and more reliable.
The money they had to spend on performance upgrades just to keep up with me
...I put into custom appearance mods so I would stand out among the rest of the sheep that all looked the same.

EVO's and WRX's are damn quick and AWD ...but "if" I wanted a fast Japanese car I'd go for a GT-R
....those are Bad Ass! 0-60 in under 2 seconds (with a few tweaks), but I'm 50 years old now...and its just not my style at this stage in my life





I actually prefer the more elegant British Aston Martin's for an "Older Gentlemans" sports car with a little more class






the Vantage V8 sounds soooo sweet too



Has anyone seen the new AM One 77 ? O-M-G! Sex on Wheels

People can say what they want but I've seen some pretty fast "ricers". The drag strip I go to has import day a couple of times a year. There are plenty of 8,9 and 10 second cars. An Evo is near the top of the food chain when modified correctly. That was an awesome kill! I can't wait until you get to talk to the guy to get his reaction.
