    Looks great so far. This is just a personal preference, but I'd move everything just a tad more from the left edge of the screen.

    As far as making it more eye-catching, I think it already looks eye-catching! Simple is prefered by me. But if you wish to complicate it slightly, it might help to have a small picture next to one of each paragraph, just illustrating what is being said.

    It really does look great the way it is though.

    looks fantastic to me. It doesnt need changing, but if your asking for ideas....

    I think the main text needs to be a little more indented on both sides (or maybe put in a centred div?)

    you could jazz it up with some image-rollovers on the menu at the top.

    also, on the grey footer at the bottom, it looks abit out of place cut of like that. perhaps making it not so high and then ending it with the arrows like at the top you could keep that consistent theme going?

    hope that gives you some more ideas...

    I think at the moment it looks awesome, plus I love that mustang... You could try to balance out the page a little, most of the content falls to the left of the page why not have something with a little eye-weight to it on the right?

    Go with brochris on what he said as well!

    The logo is a bit jaggy, what happened to the aliasing?

    The footer of the page is a needless image.

    I'd put a 1px black outline around the highlighted part of your nav, to add better definition for the eye to follow. It will also compliment when the users changes sections.

    Try and get some actual text a bit highr in your page for search engine rankings.

    Other than that, it's a little plain, a little empty, but it does work.

    All that I can think of for you to do, is to shrink down the contact bar at the bottom, so it is more or less the same height as the text. Otherwise, - well it is great site.
