    Well I'm gonna be honest here, there's not much to critique. I'll comment on a few things, and I'm sure someone else will be along to pick up the rest.

    1. Splash pages are useless. They serve no purpose, and your splash page is the only page w/ a graphic on it. The site needs more color, try improving the splash page graphic, moving it to the "home" page, and then ditching the splash page.

    2. The background image...yuck. On top of that, it makes the text hard to read.

    3. If you're going to have all of your content in a table like that, centering the table would improve the overall look. Your title is centered, your content should follow suit.

    4. The page has two totally different designs. Create one design, and stick with it. You can have a template for the home page, and a differnt template for the content pages, but they should fit together.

    I don't want to discourage you though, keep at it. I offer these comments as constructive criticism.

    I would agree with everything that splufdaddy said and make two other suggestions:

    1. Lower the size of your font. Large letters tend to make it look like you're not saying very much and are overcompensating with a bigger font size.

    2. Try to avoid backgrounds if you can in your site (especially Angelfire-provided ones). They do make text harder to read. If you have to use one, try to use one where the maximum difference between the lightest and darkest colours is 20%. This makes text much easier to read.

    Good luck to you!

    What background should i use? I'll decrease the size of the font, and see how it looks. I was thinking about using the white background and adding some images and pictures to liven it up. what do you think


    get up with me

    I like that idea better. Some more pictures of the cars themselves in lieu of the background would make much more sense.
