Unimpressed with some car ads I've seen, I decided to make a quick screen capture and stock photo video about how to make an ad for Craigslist. I made it in just a couple hours and probably could have done a better job (like bullet lists or something), but I feel like it's a small step and a giant leap for us all. QQ

This is the example ad that I had typed up before screen capturing:

Awesome Brand Car, X38, 1999, 100834 miles, VIN XXXXXX0..., $6000

V8 6.7L Cool-Engine, Automatic, Super Sound^Tm System, Sunroof, A/C, Machine Gun Turret

Ninja Pirate Berserkr 19" Rims

I have a clean title in hand and a Bill of Sale ready to go.

The car is free of damage to the best of my knowledge. Engine starts, no rust, replaced the windshield a few years ago because some kids threw a baseball at it. I change the oil regularly.

I love my car, but I'm selling it because I'm moving to a place where they drive on the left side of the road... bleh.

Cash only. No trades. Thanks.

I can send more pictures.

Best way to contact me is to call between noon and 6pm:
555-555-1212, ask for Alan

Keyword: Awesome Brand Car, Not a Panda

Berserkr was spelled that way on purpose. I also spell other things like that, such as Baldr. =D

You may have noticed that I like mustangs. The fighter and the instrument are in there... I should have added the animal too.
