McKaig - A Dealer For The PeopleĀ®

A local business has become so upset by what they’ve seen on social media that they’ve decided to take matters into their own hands and do something outrageous about it.

“I was so tired of all the negativity in my newsfeed that I couldn’t take it anymore,” Mark Abernathy, Owner at McKaig Chevrolet Buick explained. “So many people were posting about how frustrated they were with their old car.”

Abernathy’s brainchild is a viral campaign encouraging East Texas residents to “UNFRIEND” their old car and drive home a nicer, newer car for just $9 down."

“I believe everybody deserves to drive a nicer, newer car and nobody should be stuck driving a car they hate. That’s why I decided to cook up a crazy idea to help all of my 'friends' own a car they love and drive with pride,” Abernathy said.

So just how is Abernathy helping local residents upgrade their ride? Amazingly, he’s offering anyone willing to “Unfriend their old car”—trade it in—the option to drive home in a nicer, newer car.

“People in East Texas are posting downer statuses about how they’re stuck with their beater due to credit problems of the past. They’re worried that not-so-great credit will follow them around forever,” Abernathy told reporters.

But the team at McKaig helps people with credit problems every day. In fact, it’s what they do best. They’ll tackle any challenge and work hard to get you driving home in a car you love.

“I’m doing everything I can to get shoppers approved, even those with not-so-great credit,” says Abernathy I’m “linked in” with the banks and lenders that want to make a deal with you today. I believe everyone deserves to drive a nicer, newer car—which is why you can UNFRIEND your OLD CAR this month. You could be updating your profile pic today with a new car you love for just $9 down.

You could drive home a nicer, newer car for just $9 down— but researchers estimate that the UNFRIEND your OLD CAR deal at McKaig will only last until Abernathy has made more friends than he can handle.
