I don't like the term 'ricer.' The whole idea of the label is to insult a certain automotive manufacturing power, and a driving enthusiast culture.
If I were to choose between a car that runs and one that does not, I would go with the one that runs. However, head to head, both in running condition, a Skyline is a superior vehicle over a 535. That should be okay with everyone, since the 535 was not built to be a sports car.
