......an Integra is a Ricer. I know, I know, there are varying degrees of ricer but to some of us Die Hard Brand Loyal Patriots of North American born and bred ingenuity and Musclecar Power still term all Asian imports with buzzy sewing machine engines as Ricers.
You would have to have been a teenager in the 60'* to really appreciate the "Made in Japan" reputation they deservidly got and how they reformed and restructured their whole industrial base by stealing (Achem...Borrowing) North American ideas and making them better (smart people and a real powerful nation....all 2 billion of them!)
While it'* true that most of the Import cars driven here are made in North America using parts made in NA. This is great! Sure, it makes sense for them to save the expense of shipping but you can put money on the fact that it was negotiated that way by the Federal Bureau of Something or other to try and protect NA jobs.
....and because we live in a Capitalistic Democratic Society where the people decide...
Consumers = Products = Companies = Money = Power = Control
Now I'm not saying Ricers are Baaaaad. Nooooooo.
