I want to design a used car website, is there a good CMS to do this?

I am looking to design a small used car website where people can register, then sign in and post their car for sale.

I’d like to be able to have a way for them to post a photo and fill out a form with info about the car. I would also like to have the database searchable by users of the site so they can find what they’re looking for.

I am very familiar with open source CMS systems such as PHP Fusion. Is there a CMS system (free or otherwise) that would be fairly simple to turn into this type of site? I have extensive HTML knowledge but not much in PHP, so I’m looking to have something that wouldn’t take much modifying.

If a CMS system isn’t the way to go, what is? What programs do I need to use to create a site that can do all of this? It doesn’t have to be anything really fancy.

Any help would be most appreciated. And please, don’t post answers about your website design services. I’m not interested. I’m just looking for info on how to create this site myself. Thanks!
I’m looking for something VERY close to one or more of these sites:

http://www.leasefolks.com/

http://www.swapalease.com/

http://www.takemypayments.com/

http://www.leasedwheels.com/

I recommend Joomla[1]. It’s written in PHP, free and open source.

You can try the extensions in this page[2] for your car photos.
