It's all well and good, but I think £5 is a lot for an advert that hardly anyone is going to see (i've noticed you only have ~40 visitors that aren't unique), plus it's not like you have hosting costs to pay for with it being on freeserve webspace, so why not make it free?
Also - why not make it database driven, that way the advertisments could be organised a lot easier than just editing html pages, and the entire thing could be automated.

Thanks for your comments Chris.
Just for info : vintageworld.co.uk is a brand new site and had only just gone live. There have been around 100 more hits since you posted your message. You said 'why not make it free' - text only adverts are free. If it becomes sucessfull the site would most likely be moved to a hosted domain and will almost certainly be database driven. At the moment it is in it's infancy and has been created by enthusiasts to be useful to fellow enthusiasts buying, selling or 'just looking' in the field of vintage machinery.
