    Good PHP web templates?

    Hi,

    I am currently teaching myself PHP and have only limited knowledge at the moment. I have however done lots of static web sites in the past and one of my clients/friends have asked if I could do them a Car Dealership website that has dynamic functions.
    He wants to be able to add and remove cars from his site and have various search facilities built into the site to allow customers to search his database.
    As it would take me an age to write such a site could anybody recommend a good source to buy a template website from?
    It doesn't need ecommerce, as he doesn't want to sell directly from the site.

    Thanks in advance.

    No offense to you or anything, but I really recommend that an experienced programmer is used for this.

    Yea, you're really going to have a hard time trying to a template script that meets all your needs. Just hire a programmer and have him create exactly to your specifications.

    Even if you get a ready-made script, you will have to do massive customisation for the script to work the way you want. I am talking about major work that need to be carried out.

    So, as arkinstall pointed out, you need an experienced backend developer to do this.
