Well, might as well do a facelift myself. The star is from the 55 300SL Gullwing at the Concours this year. The color was ever so slightly tweaked.

Original is in the gallery.

The John McCain campaign ad in the left margin was very attractive but wasn't he on the wrong side of the page?

The new versions look like crap and are slow as shit. Bring back the old style, it was perfectly fine.

Scroll down to the bottom of the page and on the left is a drop down options box which allows you to choose default - old style or V2 - new style layout.

You have no choice about the ads on the left apparently.

Thanks, Nao.

The place looks like a forum for 18 year old dudes who have movie posters from The Fast and the Furious on their walls. Yelch.

The 18th police district started on the south side of the street and the 19th to the north so the joint was always full of cops. It was the place you went to after drinking all night to grab a bite and there was never any trouble because of the aforementioned fuzz.
George, the owner(God rest his soul) took a dirt nap and his clever son took over. He filled the place with ferns and lots and lots of brass...........They went under within a year. So yeah, change can be bad..
I say that to say this, Admin!!!! I love the skin changes but please center the page before I swallow an LOL Kitty. You don't want that on your conscious do you?

TK, if you can sit far enough away to read it but still see your screen, bump your resolution up a notch or two to eliminate the scrolling.
