Often driven by a ricer
, these heavily modified japanese import cars are a little better than turbo-charging your mums kettle. Often seen with a rear aerodynamical device called a "wing", they are mistaken for a Shopping Trolley or toilet-with-handles.
Usually seen outside your local massive shopping center or cultural center, they make themselves seen by revving their engines while driving at 10kms/hr so as that they are noticed.
Australians typically hate rice burners
. Rice burners are often mistaken for tuner cars, which look similar, but the person in charge usually knows what they are doing.
Usually, a rice burner's additions serve only to increase the weight, damage costs and yellow stickers (oz), for little or no effect.
OMG I just blew off that loud rice burner in my tuned XF Fairmont Ghia (oz car). Is it just me or did it sound like its exhaust had fallen off?
My 97kw 76 HJ Kingswood (oz car) owns your pos rice burner.
