An imported car (usually Honda Civic or Acura Integra) that is "riced up" or souped up, mainly in physical appearance. These cars usually do not go very fast but have the appearance of a race car. Stickers for NOS, stereo companies, and the word "TYPE R" are common on these cars even if they do not contain anything by those companies in the car. Teenagers usually drive these cars and are said to be "rice boys."
Look at that rice rocket parked over there. It's bright green and has a NOS sticker on it but I don't see any NOS canisters in there.

Slow ass 4-cylinder car with a slew of cheap mods. These can include a "coffee-can" exhaust, performance parts stickers, rims, tinted windows, and the always necessary unpainted wing. There are rare versions that are actually respectable, but most are downright laughable.
Some honda pulled up to me with a tach-light for shifting and started revving. I managed to crush him two times in a row with 4 people in my truck, a full tank of gas, and studded snow tires. That's what 5.7 liters and 330 pounds of torque does.

A vehicle driven that is generally not meant to go fast, yet has the apperance of being a race-like car. A driver of a rice-rocket is a rice boy.
Why do people do up fucking Honda Civics and make them "look" sporty when they are girls cars. I hate those crappy "rice rockets".
