Loads without issue for me.
Might be more of a DNS problem than anything you can solve, @Tubby. I'm getting a full load in about 2-3 seconds on a wifi connection to a wireless high-speed adaptor. It's a long way from the Netherlands to Australia. Maybe 'c * 10^-3 m/s' is not fast enough? LOL.
I Checked with 6 Aussie users - (they are not loading the site for the first time) the 6 said "no problems."
I have been re-uploading the site a bit lately with changes as I shuffle adverts and ad image links to a wordpress site.
It is going well. . It is getting excellent user acceptance so far. even getting a few Canadians looking for parts.

My intent is to give the impression that this site either has the part . . Or will find it for me. (my philosophy is that I prefer to be the last site a user searches (rather than the first)
But, you are Right it is a bit Jumbled.
I will give you some green rep if you re-visit the site looking for a specific year make and model car part (early model pre 1950) and give me a second review.
(if the moderators have not removed you)
It has been around 12 months since I had the site reviews. (very grateful) for your previous thoughts. and would like an update.
Since the review I have added a blog where I have listed all the images (photo adverts) on site
(tony-noonan.com) I have linked from the text advert that have images to this blog
The main site antiqueautoparts.au.com now has a 'free stats' link at the top left corner. and I am quite happy with the results. I have a steady supply of requests for parts so I now include room for site users looking for parts. (no stats I can place here for the blog)
This site is basically for Australian parts.
I know that there is always room for improvement . This is what I hope to gain from any updated reviews.
In fact (cunning old you), you are portraying just the right image. Not a slick webmaster at all, but a folks-like-us chap who has oil and rust on his hands.
Just one big problem. The writing is not easy to read. The red "Warning" box is horribly blurred, and the type size will make it difficult for people with less than perfect vision to peruse lists. If viewers find it uncomfortable to read your site, they might leave your site and relegate it to their "come back to it later perhaps" list.
