Isn't that why we have ricers to begin with? We gotta have someone to pick on, the old ford vs chevy gets pretty boring after a while.
Especially since we all know Chevy wins everytime! jk

On the SSR
They should ditch the R and call it something cool from Chevrolet's past... Apache. The Apache (think SSR without the ricer R and with the 5.3) and the Apache SS with the 390HP 6.0 (362ci) v8.

Or, Master/Master Deluxe... hmmm... anything is better than R .



Ricer Stores
The local speed shop even has ricer crap. At least it's only an aisle for that crap, 2 aisles for 4x4 "redneck" (as my buddy calls em) trucks, and about 4 aisles for our v8s, they even have old 1970s crane cams, and some for GNXs. Kinda cool if you want an 100% era-correct 1970s rod.

Oh god thats funny!! The ricers around here usually go to a rice "speed" shop. Its a locally owned place that only sells rice parts. Im glad that they have their own shop. Because The other shops like oriellys and autozone would be overrun. I still see them in Autozone, but thats mostly because its right one the busiest street in town and just down the street from university. Being close to school is the only reason I use autozone more than orieillys.

That wouldn't work either, I saw a kid with carbon fiber fenders and a wing on his bike. Maybe a pogo stick?

Sema

Apparently none of you tuned into the Sema show. The hotrod parts Mecca of the world. Well, tuner is in and in full swing. Edelbrock, Weld, AFR, Weiand, Holley, Painless, you name the company and they got their fingers in the pie. If you don't want to deal with a company that is not catering to the Tuners. Sell your car and get out your bicycle.

Ricer parts at Autozone...

Their "Yen" is as green as our Dollars...................Ya gotta stay in business.

Lonestar I saw a fast ricer once, it was in my rear view mirror. Stayed right with me no matter how fast I went. Might have had something to do with the chain that it was hooked to my car with...

My Fiance's kid got sucked into that aftermaket ricer crap. He was browsing in the used Boeing aircraft parts section and picked up a wing. He mounted it to his trunk lid and then proceded to complain that he couldn't keep it going straight down the highway at speed. Now it sits in the basement all cold and alone.

66Caprice I try to avoid the autozones, adavanced auto and other franchises for everything except oil and other "shop expendibles". There are a couple old-time privately owned parts shops here, and if I need something fast, they always seem to have it, and, they know how to look parts up in a book.

Funny story - I needed some chains for my engine lift, so I went to Advanced Auto and told them, I need some chains for my engine lift, you have them as part number ###. Well, the counter person immediately went to the computer and started the "What make/model/year is it?"... <sigh> She had to get a manager to find the chains, which were right behind her on a shelf...

Otherwise, online and catalogues specific to chevy seem to have the best selection and with overnight shipping, or even ground delivery times, it's not that big of a deal to wait.

Ricers are everywhere, muscle cars, rat rods, hot rods race cars are not. Businesses have to provide for the demand or the competition will take them out.

johnsongrass1 The part's houses here have entire isles dedicated to chrome dress up doo dads and other go fast...er...go somewhere stickers. Not one of them stock anything engine performance wise. Ricers don't know what to do with it anyway.
