Datsun dad who used half-naked pictures of blonde to sell his vintage car admits she is just a friend and not his daughter
The car seller who caused a stir for using half-naked pictures of a woman he claimed was his daughter to sell his 1977 Datsun on eBay admitted yesterday that she is just a friend.
In a bid to sell his vintage car, Kim Ridley, from Oregon, enlisted the help of a 20-year-old woman called Lexxa - by getting her to pose provocatively with, and on, the car so he could upload them to his eBay site.
When one user asked him: 'Does buying the car include a free "ride" with the porn star?', Mr Ridley revealed who the tattooed, bottle-blonde was by saying: 'Nice way to talk about my daughter!!!! But sure----------!!!! Hit the buy it now!!'
When viewers of the ad realized that the dozen images uploaded of the young woman leaning over the Z-Series, some with a birds-eye-view shot of either her cleavage or butt cheeks were of his daughter, he attracted a lot of criticism.
Initially Mr Ridley told AdFreak he did not regret the decision to use the sexy pictures of his daughter saying that 'dogs and girls sell', and that he wouldn't have done it if he thought it was a bad idea.
He then finally admitted to KVAL that he lied and the girl in the picture is actually a long-time friend of his who sometimes helps him to sell cars.
He said the whole thing started as a joke that maybe went too far.
The six-cylinder Datsun has fewer than 50,000 miles on it and sold for $7,500 after five bids, according to the eBay listing.
