His response to my autotrader listing:

Thank you for getting back to me,can you assure me that i will not be
disappointed if i buy this Vehicle as a Birthday gift for my Dad? as
I\'m ready to pay your asking price but not cash in person because
I\'m an Oceanographer and i am presently on a contract which will end
in couple of months,the contract is strictly no call due to the lack
of reception on the sea area,but I\'m able to access my mail through
my laptop and my only quickest payment option is PayPal,its safe
fast and secure and i will be responsible for the pay pal transaction
charges so you can get your expected amount. If you don\'t have an
account with paypal,its pretty easy to open one,Just log on to
( and sign up.I hope we can make the purchase as fast
as possible? as my Dad\'s birthday is fast approaching,am sure he
will love this vehicle,his a mechanic and a handy man,so if there is
anything that need to be fixed in it just let me know he will handle
it. I have a mover that will come for the pick up once payment clears
in your account and he will handle the title for me.I look forward to
hear from you with the information below.
