    Hey Wizard

    I really like that site. Looks really nice. Very classy

    I cant really think of anything to try and improve the right hand menu. Ecept maybe try to make them centered abit more within the grey border. Not much of a suggestion but I think it looks alright as it is.

    One thing though I am using AOL, yer I know somepeople dont like it but I thought I would mention that the drop down menu appears off to the right to much.

    Here is a pic so you can see what I mean.

    hmmm, not sure but I think that is probably intentional. The same happens to me (using IE 6 and Mozilla 1.2.1)

    Yer thats what I thought at first, too Krycek,

    But when I maximised the aol window to full. It appeared directly underneath the menu link.

    So I thought I would point it out, just in case.

    Ya im trying to fix that... When your screen is set at 800x600 you get the same result. Im trying to find a drop down menu that is transparent, if any of you find one let me know. Thanks

    just to help support statements above, the menu for me is to far to the right also, ie6 800x600

    and another suggestion, take out the Fords
    think about it, it takes them a quarter of a million dollars just to make a good car ( aston martin ) hehehehehe

    excuse me, don't insult us British by saying that Ford are responsible for the excellence of Aston Martin

    Sure Ford own a lot of companies etc. including Jaguar, but I think you will find that even though some of the parts that end up in cars such as the Jaguar XKR and Aston Martin Vanquish are Ford parts, the difference between a Ford Ford and a Jag/Aston is... well, there's a world of difference.

    The main reason is that Jaguar make Jaguars, and Aston Martin make Aston Martins, and thankfully Ford doesn't make either

    hehehe I love those cars
