We chosen Drupal CMS because its not just CMS, its framework (note to Dries - please do not make Drupal a second Wordpress, we know that you want to grow Drupal more in CMS way than framework, and we think its wrong).
We like to use built-in publishing functionality of Drupal CMS, its support for media (images, videos) processing, we love fields and entities.
At the same time its easy to extend Drupal with custom modules for custom functionality. So we usually use Drupal for basics but custom modules for everything else.
Shakefire.com is not a new website. It has been done several years ago, and Drupal 6 has been used for that version.
So main requirements for new website were: migrating to Drupal 7, improving speed and performance, extending functionality, implementing new look and feel.
One of the challenges were to migrate more than 50000 nodes to Drupal 7.
