Remembering Japanese cars from the past

Redesign and change of heart!

In case you are a regular you must have a big WTF?! by now… Yes, indeed not only did I just change the look and feel of the blog, I also decided the blogging software should be changed to WordPress.

Why? Well that’s quite simple: the old software was getting too complicated (I hacked a lot into it), outdated (less nifty features as WordPress), Facebook posting (still to be enabled) and the comment spam was getting worse and due to anti spam matters real comments were declining… So I decided, even though I’m very skeptic about WordPress, to rely on a system that works.

About the redesign: it is a fantastic theme called Custom Community by Themekraft. If you didn’t recognize the logo: it was inspired/borrowed by the Nissan Ken & Mary Skyline C110 advertisement campaign:
Ken & Mary stickers
Hope you will like the change as much as I do! 😉

BTW: if you encounter problems with old pages, please send them to me through the contact form. Also the blogroll will be extended to its original length later on.

      Not entirely from scratch: the old content should still be available… But indeed it looks a bit empty now.
      And thanks for the compliment Nigel & Killua! 🙂

    Right now it looks like Drupal is the best blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
