Rice or Not is the premiere "rice rating" website where you can rate photos from 1 (not) to 10 (rice). Rice is a word that, in the past, described modified Japanese import vehicles that lacked horsepower. Today, the word is not limited to just these vehicles. It has come to describe any vehicle customized in poor taste, or a vehicle that looks ridiculous and just plain silly. For example, something as simple as putting a GT badge on a non-GT model may be considered by some to be a bit ricey. You might not realize it but that car in front of you might just be rice. Try to find the world's most riced out car and take pictures with your digital camera or camera phone. Can you get a perfect 10? Or find out whether the general enthusiast population believes that your ride is riced out based on your modifications. Post your pic and find out! . After you vote, you can see the average rating as well as the total number of people that voted. ("RD")
