I'm very excited to announce that after a lot of work on my part, I've finally finished www.michaelsvintageracing.com! Please take a moment and check out the site on your desktop and/or mobile. I'd love to hear any and all feedback as I built the site myself and want to make it as good as it can be! Thanks in advance and I hope you enjoy looking around!

-Mike

And don't worry, there are some English Fords in the mix! Very Happy

Looks very good, I have no knowledge of setting up websites but yours seems to be clearly laid out unlike some I have been on.

Thanks guys, I'm glad it's easy to navigate and understand. And believe me, I have little knowledge of setting up websites either! Very Happy

Great job on the website. According to the race schedule on the site you're going to be in my neighborhood in mid-September, at NJ Motorsports Park. Maybe I'll look into getting tickets for that event.

Impressive website. I know it takes work to get it just right. I see that most of your racing cars are EnFo powered. Pete

Thanks, it was quite a bit of work. I'm happy to have it (mostly) finished and active, though!

You're right, almost everything we have now is Ford-powered. The only holdouts at this point are the Lola and Elva MkIV (Climax), two Juniors (BMC A-series), and the MkI Courier (BMC B-series). My MkIV Courier will have a Ford 1500cc pre-crossflow as well when it's finished!

I received a bit of feedback elsewhere that the menu buttons were a bit "dated" looking, so I smoothed things out a little. Here is the new layout:


And here is the old:


Thoughts?

I stuck with a version of the yellow banner, but also kept the color-change when floating over the menu options. I think it's pretty slick!

I tried something else to "liven up" the look of the site and would like some input: I added some photos to the backgrounds of the home, services, and drivers pages. I can't tell if they cause a bit of visual overload, though. I was thinking maybe something with a parallax effect to reduce the number of photos on "taller" pages, but I haven't gotten it to work right yet. Thanks!
