    Absolutely, it looks fabulous.

    Well, after less than a week we have had some excellent entries, as well as plenty of not-so-excellent ones.

    If you are able to attend the Goodwood Revival on Friday 13 September, then this is an event well worth paying to go to. Even better if you can get a pair of free tickets, so get your thinking caps on!

    As the sole judge and jury, I can advise that I’m not necessarily looking for the most technically-correct answer, but the best argument in favour of your choice. So far, we have had plenty of nominations for the Mini, VW Beetle, Model T Ford, Jaguar E-Type and so on, as well as well-argued votes for the Ferrari F40 and Toyota Yaris…

    Thanks guys. It must be a specific issue for certain browsers or operating systems, as it works fine for me.

    Will have a look at it over the next couple of days as soon as I have some time.

    Hmmm. Works fine for me, so not sure what to suggest.

    Quoting is all to cock and when I tried to edit the post, to make the quote work, a page with only the site frame appeared.

    For font size, there is a button on the toolbar when writing a post where you can adjust the font size.

    Quick update – apart from the fairly obvious complete redesign of the site, I have been trying to find some tweaks for the forum. Unfortunately, I don’t seem to be able to sort out the small font issue, but have not given up yet. However, there is a font size button in the toolbar when posting, so you can try using that to make fonts larger…

    I have added a capcha for unregistered posters, so that people can post on the forum without having to register. The plan is that anonymous posters can contribute but spambots can’t, while logged-in forum members shouldn’t see the capcha at all. Fingers crossed it works!

    As always, I am keen to hear everyone’s feedback and suggestions, so let me know what you think and what you would like to see improved.

    As for the annoyingly small font size in the forums, I don’t seem to be able to do anything about it. If anyone has web developing skills and can offer advice, I’d muchly appreciate it!

    Images should now be hotlinking, rather than just the text on the images.

    I always wanted a car with a digital dash when I was a kid. When you are too young to drive, handling and responsiveness are not exactly priorities, but a digital dash was cool.

    The forum font size is something I don’t seem to be able to alter adequately, but am looking into ways of sorting it. Should be able to get the images to hotlink rather than just the text, will hopefully get it sorted over the next couple of days. Thanks for the feedback.

    And before you all mention it, yes, I realise that the sidebar is missing from the forum pages (and most of the posts). Not sure how to fix that yet…

    Hi everyone,

    Apologies to anyone who was using the website last night and found that there were a few problems – I was trialling a new look for the site, which was supposed to be completely invisible to users but apparently meant that everything in the sidebar (login, forum topics, Facebook/Twitter bits, etc.) all disappeared.

    Everything should be back to normal again now, but there may be future blips over coming days. I will be rolling out a new look for the website by the end of the next fortnight, which should hopefully make the whole thing a bit more visually exciting and allow easier searching and navigation, as well as look better on tablets, phones and screens of different sizes. The site has largely outgrown its current framework, which was really designed for a different sort of purpose.

    Interestingly, the level of traffic on the site, which had been increasing steadily all year, suddenly doubled last month. This is great news, but the analytics data shows that there is still plenty of scope for visitors to hang around longer and find more information, which is currently not easy to do.

    I promise that it won’t be an Autocar-style redesign, where functionality goes out the window, and that the forum will continue to be an important part of the site :)

    As always, if you have any ideas or suggestions for things you would like to see, just ask – either here on the forum or e-mail me at [email protected]

    Even if you’re not British, the end of Top Gear tonight was epically brilliant. Also, Mark Webber is an absolutely top bloke (as all Australian men are…) and I was very pleased (SPOILER ALERT) that he beat Vettel.

    By far the best of the series, and the best in recent memory.

    Given how many small pieces that have to go together to form the final product, it will end up costing nearly as much as the real thing!

    Looks great, though.
