What is the deal with all these "riceburners" on the road? If you want
to make your car look like a joke on four wheels, go ahead... But, if
you're going to try to take on and burn a Camaro, atleast ACTUALLY make
some REAL performance upgrades to your Honda or whatever you drive.
Stickers and spoliers AREN'T performance upgrades! Anyone else agree
"Right is right, and right always wins."
What's even more funny about these "riceburners" is when you pull up
alongside one at a stop light and they start to rev their 4-cylinder at
you... Makes for a good laugh- especially, when you rev your engine
back, and they stop. By the way, I did see ONE "riceburner" Camaro
(don't know if it was a Z28 or an SS)- baby blue paint with a spoiler
that was higher than the roof of the car. Just goes to show, not
everyone has enough brains (or respect) to leave a classic alone.
"Right is right, and right always wins."
Speaking of racism, on another ng someone mentioned they would never own
a Camaro "SS" because of it gave him the creeps because of a possible
with WWII. Call me naive, but in the 30+ years I have admired, owned, and
Camaros, I have NEVER made that association...
The best riceburner I had fun with was one pulled up beside me. I was in my
4x4 GMC 2500 truck (little extras not much) ... he rev'd it up a few times
and we pulled out. I beat him by a car length or so by the next light. He
looked over got pissed off put his big racing seat belt on told his little
lady to do the same.... Light changed.... I actually pulled on him enough to
complete the pass within a 1/4 of a mile and pulled over in front of him
before the next light... suprisingly he never pulled up to my left to try
again... my truck only runs mid 16's in the quarter... what did his peice
Best saying I ever heard....
"A RICE BURNER IS LIKE A TAMPON EVERY PUSSY NEEDS 1"
2 piece of shit ricers tried pulling that shit with me a while back.. I was
in the little Camaro.. and was driving on the Interstate.. they pull up on
my left stepping on it (as much as they could I guess) one right after the
other.. I kept going until I started catching up to a gorgeous black 4th gen
Camaro... we both had our T-tops off and looked at eachother and smiled at
eachother's cars.. looked at the ricers and decided to box them in......
anyone remember the game "parchesie"? Well, they were being stupid and
pulled behind us... the other guy slowed so we were side by side covering
both lanes with both ricers behind us.. we stayed like this for probably
5-10 miles.. they got pissed and both tried tdoing the "Rice and the
Rediculous" move and both go around us on the outsides.. well.. needless to
say, this was right after an overpass... who usually sits by overpasses?
Yeah, the good ol' State Patrol.. lights went on... and the next exit
another cop came in.. pulled them both over.. :-) We looked at eachother
and smiled and kept driving. So whoever that guy was, I like him!
1985 Blue Camaro 2.8L w/T-tops (148k and going... getting worried)
1988 Blue Firebird Formula 5.0L w/T-tops
1985 Brown Firebird 5.7L w/5-Speed (No T-tops though)
Still looking for an '82-'84 T/A w/T-tops for parts from one
The MAxima makes you sorry to own Asian!
I can write a ten page story of how an Asian with a Maxima screwed me out of
over $4500.00 on a roll over, which he didn't have insurance on. But it
always makes me laugh too hard. So the money could have been a write off for
It would be because the Maxima is newer than the Camaro, and that
buying a Camaro is better taste than buying a Maxima. Thus, your
In 1992 you should have bought a 1992 Camaro. Care to compare a fully
decked out 2002 Camaro (last year made) to a fully decked out 2002
Maxima? I'll save you some effort. Maxima I think was at 240HP
(maybe 260) and the LS1 in the Camaro has about a 100 more. Not to
mention a Camaro is, well, a Camaro. Rice is still rice. Other than
that though, I really like Maximas. Hehe.
