    This is a new personal project I'm developing - The US Lotus Owners Community.

    The basic concept is to provide a resource for Lotus owners in the USA. Right Now, I have news, technical resources, and a list of Lotus dealers. I also want to add other resources and make it the premiere "portal" for US-based Lotus owners, providing all the information and tools they need.

    Any other modules you guys might suggest that I can plug in to add some "meat" without much work?

    I'm using Drupal as the CMS for the site. It's really powerful, but I'm finding it's a real pain in the neck to get looking un-bloggish. Anyone have any experience with it? Any help welcome.

    Right now, I pretty much have the default Drupal look up... I'm going to do something more custom once I have a user-base to justify it.

    Yeah I definitely see the whole 'feels like a CMS' thing. You might just want to work with the layout a bit to get rid of that.

    Also, why is that striking picture of a lotus hidden at the bottom of the page?! That would look awesome at the top, like set against the green or overlapping something.

    The two logos, one big, one small, I would stick with just one, and if you need pictures for the content area, any stock photos of a lotus would work.

    All in all, i'd say you have a very promising design.

    Totally agree with the comment about the nice looking car stuck at the bottom!

    SACRILEGE!!!

    For some reason, I was hoping to see something template-ish. I find it a tad boring and that's probably because of the Joomla thing.

    I agree with all that has been said. I think you should swap the pic of the car with the big logo at the top. Oh, and the picture of the Lotus is wider than the column that contains it in Opera.
