Daughter Poses Provocatively To Sell Dad’s Vintage Car On eBay [UPDATED]

A creepy dad in Oregon used a photo of his 20-year old daughter Lexxa Ridley posing as a kind of hot rod car model to help sell his 1977 Datsun on eBay for $7,500. His muse was clad in a yellow camisole, exposed pink bra, lacy boy shorts and pleather knee-high boots. Cool parenting! Since the ad went up, dear old dad has received quite a bit of criticism from people wondering what kind of parent would want to be involved in photographing his daughter in such a provocative manner.
This is not entirely unprecedented — sure, Steven Tyler had Liv in his video for “Crazy,” in which she swirled around on stage for amateur stripper night, but maybe rock stars do abide by different standards. At least Steven Tyler wasn’t casting his daughter in order to help him sell his used car.
The brains behind the operation, Lexxa’s dad Kim, scoffed to The Week that if “[he] felt bad about it, I wouldn’t do it” which only makes our stomachs turn even more. This is one example of a father that does not know best, and advertising his car along with his daughter’s body is proooobably one of the grosser things we’ve seen in 2012.
UPDATE: This is, unfortunately, not the first time Kim Ridley has used pictures of his daughter to sell motor vehicles…
