American-manufactured vehicles with all the 'thrills' of import ricers. Typically featuring a four banger engine and sometimes come included with (or added by the owner) a forced induction system. While these are sometimes accepted as 'better' than import ricers because they have American manufactured badges on them, they still are cheaply made, easily mass-produced vehicles that- like any vehicle- can be made 'faster' with a turbocharger. Often seen with giant unneccissary wings- improperly labeled as a spoiler (as they are front-wheel drive), a fart cannon, and altezza lights.
The most typical american ricers are the Dodge Neon, Chevy Cavalier, Chevy Cobalt, and the Ford Focus.

a wannabe, an annoyance on the highway, that annoying thing that passed you that sounded like a lawnmower, the thing at the other side of the block that you keep laughing at, the car u saw in the good will parking lot next to the state store, very confused individual.
