you could always try doteasy.com. It's shared ip hosting but as far as I know it's still safe.

There is a good list [dmoz.org] at dmoz.org. I'd go with one of the smaller, less known companies. Probably the more obscure the company the better off you are.

I have a friend that sells custom Land Rover engines as a hobby. He'd like to start out online with some sort of free space (I'll provide a doorway/good url with 100% frames). I have zero knowledge of which sites allow commercial vendors or are fast enough in serving pages to be tolerable. I'm thinking Tripod, is it OK?

Another option is Mailbank.com.

They have a service where they have registered heaps of domains and then lease subdomains for a next to nothing. You can get just an email name, or email/website package with 5 mb space. Ususally big enough for startups but no cgi etc.

They have Family names and generic Business names so you can usually find something suitable. And no problems submitting the subdomains to search engines.

I use them for some clients but am not affiliated with them.

Yes, I recommended that Mailbank set-up. Cheap for no banners and not having to worry about being commercial. Nice one, Woz.

nube, virtualave is OK with AV and Google for domain hosting, according to what I saw today - and free.

20 meg, FTP, CGI, SSI - the works. They're overpriced for ad-free and domain registration, though.
