I've heard people go as far as calling Fords & Chevys "riced"
That makes perfect sense. If you took a brand new Mustang GT, slammed it, put 20" dubs on it shod with rubber bands, a 10" tall spoiler that creates as much drag as it does downfore and results in so much high-speed understeer the car should be nicknamed, "the bobsled," and slathers it in random SVT and other brand badges for things that may not even be on the poor car along with the most poorly manufactured, horribly ugly looking Altezza-style tail lamps ever made, it's been riced out, regardless of where it's made or what the car came from the factory as!
If I took a can of Coca Cola Classic and did the things I just listed to it, I just riced out that canister of Coca Cola Classic!!!
Do you not
understand that what we're talking about is the common
definition of a riced-out car? Just because your devine self refuses to agree with the going convention doesn't suddenly make it wrong in anyone's eyes but your own. If you suddenly decided that scrambled eggs were made by cracking the egg into a vat of 155-degree poaching fluid, then it's only scrambled to you;
to the majority of people with a proper understanding of scrambled eggs, the described preparation is poached, not scrambled.
The definition of, "riced out," or ,"ricer," or, "rice rocket," is the common going convention, whether you like it or not.
EDIT: Btw might I add that I'm a rice-eating, yellow-skin, pure-blood Chinese person and it bothers me not one bit that people consider that sort of poor taste, "ricing out." It's the way it's used.
