Put down your iPhones, and step away from the keyboard, Craigslist car sellers of America. You have a new king, one who has claimed the throne of most overwrought ad for his teal-colored General Motors steed, and will rule for many moons to come or until Chuck Norris decides to sell his pickup online. See why below.
The ad comes from one Joe Strachila of Washington state, who enlisted pal Kyle Miller to come up with a graphic suitable for making his $700 1995 Pontiac Grand Am stand out a bit among the wilds of Seattle's Craigslist. Miller clearly took inspiration from the realm of Craigslist barkers who have gone ferocious and braggadocious over their plebian rides in the past, but his graphics made the ad superlative. Sure, the ad could mention that the Grand Am needs some engine work or that it has 154,000 miles, but firstly, it's a Craigslist ad for a car with all the caveat any emptor can muster, and secondly, there's a teal-winged unicorn. If GM had been this ingenious in selling these things in the first place, Pontiac might still be in business.
Oh, and if you want the car, here's the ad Strachila put up later.
