A poor excuse for a modified Japanese car.
The term Rice Rocket is implied to all amateur modders.
Those rice rockets are all show & no go...
Any imported (usually Japanese) car that isn't very fast but is modified to look tripped up. A lot of ricers modify the engines to go faster as well, and race them in street races. For all you nascar white trashmen who say it is a gay thing for guys with small dicks, all it is is about us teenagers loving speed and not wanting to have to drive to a Nascar area to get it, but to see it in our very own vehicle.
I took a Mazda RX-8, did hood work, got a body kit, and spent about five thousand dollars on the engine to make it a rice rocket.
