Father of the Year Uses Daughter to Sell 280Z Online
When people say the apple doesn't fall from the tree they basically mean that trashy parents make for equally trashy kids. Exhibit A: this 1977 Datsun 280Z for sale on eBay. In addition to being painted an obnoxiously loud shade of yellow, and sporting some less than flattering wheels, the yellow 280z pictured here makes use of a tattooed dirty blonde 20 year old with facial piercings for added 'gotta have it' factor. Well all know sex sells, but please allow us to explain further. The 20 year old pictured is not a model, or the owner's girlfriend, but rather his daughter. We're not sure if it's a good thing or bad thing (we're open-minded about the relationships between consenting adults) but it's probably one of the more tasteless car ads we've seen in a while. We would have loved to be a fly on the wall when as father and daughter worked out the details of this eBay ad.
The ending bid of $7,500 is impressive considering the ad says it's an original low mileage (less than 50,000 miles driven) example with only two owners. Making this Datsun 280Z a real steal if everything checks out. We seriously hope the winning bidder will make an attempt to restore this Z to a previous state of dignity. (ed. and clean it thoroughly)
