Default Creepiest Craigslist ad I've seen in a while...

This popped up on my local Craigslist today. Between the use of the feminine personal pronoun in the ad, and the accompanying photo, I was thoroughly creeped out.

1994 Cavalier RS

I think I finally realized what exactly is so creepy to me. It'd be one thing if the photo was just of the car, and the kid happened to walk into the frame. But this is something else -- clearly this is posed photo, with the dad (?) having set things up perfectly so he could get a nice clear shot of baby, with the shiny Cavalier just over baby's shoulder in the distance.

While studying the photo, I also began wondering what that object in the grass is. Overturned jon boat? Thule cargo box? Air mattress/pool float?

I wonder if this photo will end up in that girl's high school year book as a Senior Ad. Haha! And I'm not calling him...

That is exactly what I was thinking.

Near the end there I could swear he shifting from the selling the car to selling the baby.

We recently bought a family car and I don't need the smaller one any longer. She is a good car, in good shape, she's is just ugly. I'm not gonna lie, I am looking to sell her as quickly as possible, my children both have birthdays within the next month, and the money is sorely needed. Like I said, she isn't pretty but she's never let us down in the two years we've owned her.
I've attached a picture of the car below. If you are really interested in her.
