Default Would my car be classified as a ricer?

1990 Honda Civic Dx D15

K&N Aftermarket Intake

No Bodykit

Spoiler ( stock )

planning on redoing engine soon maybe a B18 VTECH

DS sport aftermarket exhaust

Headlights/ Taillights ( stock) not a fan of euro lights)

5spd tranny

Its my first car just found something small, easy on gas, and fun to drive. I would of loved a Mustang Gt or a Camaro LT1 but had only 2000 and not enough for the others.

Please no rude comments Im just asking...

Interior Details: stock

Im really trying not to make my car seem like a ricer if you have any tips on how and what i need to do to make it seem better and not have people giving me dirty looks. That would be appreciated....

FYI: Im a country boy so I always wanted a lifted truck or jeep but the price of gas is very high for a V8 and I just can't afford it.

Since it's that old an has all of those things added on I would say yes. At least it doesn't have a gawd awful body kit though. I'm glad to hear you don't like ricers

My personal definition of a "ricer" is any Japanese car whose owner tries to advertise to everyone that it's a fast car when in fact it's really not very fast. From your description I don't think you're trying to make anyone think your car is faster than it really is so I'd say your car is not a "ricer", at least not by my definition.

Just driving a Honda (or any Japanese car) with a couple of minor modifications to it doesn't automatically make it a "ricer" in my book.

Not really.

Depends on the DC exhaust and how the other little things goes, like the steering wheel, seats, seat belts, etc...
