The import car scene started off as a uniquely Asian American phenomenon, derived from both American influences of "hot rod" racing and Japanese street racing. Together, these aspects of different cultures have created a new culture, involving "souped up" "rice rockets" and "exotic" models that can only be found in Asian America. This import scene culture, which once was largely an Asian American subculture, has leaked into a more mainstream media, with Tila Tequila's reality show, "A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila" and the "Fast and the Furious" movie trilogy. Several magazines cover the import scene, and one can find that many Asian American faces can be found on its pages. Although the tide has shifted towards a more racially integrated scene, with Hispanic, African-American, and Caucasian participants, Asian Americans still have a prominent presence in the import scene.
