When you anticipate difficulty in selling your old car, you take the best possible photos using the best possible angles and you make the car look as attractive as it can.
To one Oregon man, this meant taking pictures of his scantily clad daughter in front of his car, which he then put on eBay.
According to The Week, Kim Ridley sold his 1977 Datsun, with 49k miles on it, for $7,500. Part of its easy sell was likely due to the provocative photos he posted.
All of the car photos feature his 20-year-old daughter Lexxa, wearing no pants, and in various sexually suggestive poses. One pose is Lexxa bending over on the trunk of the car, showing off her behind while staring at the camera with a seductive expression.
Another photo shows Lexxa leaning against the hood of the car. This photo barely shows the car at all, and its clear the focus of the image is on Lexxa and her cleavage.
The public is shocked at the father's decision to use the images.
David Gianatasio at AdWeek said the father-daughter relationship "puts a strange and newly unwholesome spin on the already questionable 'Sex sells' motif."
Lindsay Cross at Mommyish said it's clear that the father is selling his daughter's sexuality. "This is a crotch shot on the Internet to make dad a little money," she said.
But Ridley doesn't have regrets about using his daughter's sexuality to sell his car. "If I felt bad about it, I wouldn't do it," he said.
