'If I felt bad about it, I wouldn't do it'

Meet Daddy's little girl. Lexxa Ridley, 20, is the model seen posing provocatively in a series of photos posted by her father, Kim, in an eBay for-sale listing for his 1977 Datsun 280Z. You'll get a great view of the sunshine-yellow vehicle through Lexxa's legs—just don't let her butt cheeks distract you. In another shot, her breasts, tattoos and come-hither stare are on display. The car's in there somewhere too, I suppose. Now, if this were, say, Kate Upton, sexing up Mercedes in the Super Bowl, it'd be tacky, and an advertising cliche, but basically business as usual. But Kim being Lexxa's father puts a strange and newly unwholesome spin on the already questionable "Sex sells" motif. "If I felt bad about it, I wouldn't do it,"

Papa Ridley—who runs Ridley's Rides in Eugene, Ore.—tells AdFreak, adding that he often uses sexy snaps of his daughter and her pals to move product. "Girls and dogs attract people's attention," he says. He's also used Max, his golden retriever, in ads, including a motorcycle shot with Lexxa driving and the dog in the sidecar. The Datsun, with fewer than 50,000 miles on it, sold for $7,500. Frankly, I'm scandalized and deeply troubled by what's going on here. I mean … the car's 35 years old and we're supposed to believe that mileage number? As if.

I think most fathers do.

If the daughter and father are both OK with it - then I think it's fine. More fun than seeing a car sitting there with nobody around.

She's 20. That's not using, unless years of psychological abuse that set her up for this moment came before it. I'm more offended by YouTube/Facebook folks who use their children to get page views.

I agree that sex sells, but this doesn't come close to qualifying.

Did you know that the number of X's in a first name has an inverse correlation with getting a graduate degree in chemistry?

Yeah. Forget the picturs of Lexxa, I want to see what this degenerate is doing to his poor dog Max.

Damn, I'll have to encourage my teenage daughter Alexandra to quit doing so well in math and science.

Oh right, I'm going to get the anonymous internet lady from the board game site to rate the eye candy on eBay for me. Next thing you know she'll be trying to influence my gaming decisions.

It's hard to tell if those are piercings on her lip or cold sores.

Hmm. I find it a little distasteful that we're now assuming this woman is stupid because her dad gave her a hick name and she has a nice rack and some ink.
