Dad Uses Pics of Hot Daughter to Sell Cars on eBay

Dads are, by their very nature, weird and embarrassing – especially when it comes to their daughters. But if you thought your dad’s habit of passive-aggressively harassing your boyfriend on Facebook was as creepy as it gets, you couldn’t be more wrong.

Gross, dad.

No, the award for Creepiest Dad 2012 goes to Kim Ridley, a car dealer who did a sexy photoshoot with his 20-year-old daughter – and used the questionable snaps in an eBay ad for his 1977 Datsun 280Z.

Now, we’re not just talking about his daughter (who, in a turn of events that will surprise no one, is named Lexxa) in a slinky dress, posing with the vehicle like she’s a model in a high-class car show. We’re talking about this:

Reactions to the strange method of advertisement are divided. On one side, there are those concerned about the appropriateness of a father so blatantly sexually objectifying his own daughter. On the other, there are hilariously original jokesters asking questions like, “I wonder which has higher mileage, the car or the girl?! Ha ha ha!” Because women are worth less the more they’re “used” — get it?

Ridley doesn’t care what anyone thinks, however. The car dealer seems to have the attitude that business is business, telling AdFreak, “If I felt bad about it, I wouldn’t do it.”

It would seem as though Ridley’s strategy worked, because the Datsun sold for a cool $7,500. However, whether that can be attributed to his controversial choice of model or the fact that in the eBay ad, he described the car as “a legand,” is still up for debate. We also can’t discount Ridley’s choice of eye-searingly yellow text and Comic Sans as factors in the buyer’s decision.
