Good "Guys"

Here is an advertisement from a flyer that we recently got in the mail. On first glance, there's nothing really strange or wrong with the ad. It's just your typical notice from a car dealership.

But then when you disregard the autos and begin focusing on the people, something weird begins to happen.

Two things strike me about this image. First, what kind of good guys are these? This looks more like a rogues' gallery than a photo taken for publicity purposes. Second--and perhaps closely connected to my first speculation--notice the qualifying quotation marks. Are car salesmen more ironic than I originally gave them credit for being?

I wonder if these "good guys" are ever dry?
