Help needed? Scam/Spam or legit?

I'm trying to sell my car on craigslist... http://seattle.craigslist.org/oly/cto/2988599545.html
I've gotten a few emails today from somebody trying to get me to research insurance costs for them... just seems weird to me.. here's the text of the last email I got:
Awesome, that's perfect. My husband (redacted) is the one buying it for me. Our agreement is that he buys the car for me, if I handle the monthly policy premiums. Im sure I can afford it, but he wants me to give him a rough idea of the cost before he goes ahead and buys it.
I'm at the office, and they allow internet use to internal web sites only. Could you do a big favor for me, and go to Auto Quotes and just run a quick quote for me, so I have something to tell him? Were local, with 0 tickets or accidents. If you could just let me know how much the monthly premium is and we'll come over after work today, if that works for you.
Thanks so much!


which was in response to my email which stated:
Hi. I do have some flexibility with the price... It currently is financed so there is a minimum number I need to meet but my asking price does leave me some room to negotiate. If I remember correctly the odometer is reading just over 85k... most likely it has rolled over but the car went through a major overhaul in 2007 including an engine rebuild/upgrade. As far as I know there are no major issues performance or appearance wise. I have the car sitting at Titus Nissan Olympia off Carriage Drive. They weren`t able to offer me a trade in value so they are helping me with selling it. What kind of price were you thinking? Thanks for the response.

Also, the email address I sent to mail to isn't the same as the one I received?

Am I the only one?

I swear.. the more I read R/T, the more this scene comes to mind...

My newest food obsession....


some stew beef, stir-fry veggies, water and a packet of this stuff, one of the best curries I've been able to make.

Hollywood is officially out of new ideas...


Hmm... let's ponder this, then....

One wonders where the outrage is for this victim. Where are the celebrities coming down to visit with the family of the victim, and the media too of course.

One wonders why every fourth thread on page one of GD is not about this incident.

That is what it is about. Wonder.

Lemme think.... I don't suppose it's because these two men were arrested, charged and will subsequently face a jury of their peers - as is their right - which will ultimately (one would hope) deliver a just verdict, whilst Mr. Zimmerman has not been arrested, nor charged, in connection with the death of young Mssr Martin, and in fact, would have been relatively free to live the rest of his days in relative peace and comfort if not for the "outrage" and "celebrities coming down to visit with the family of the victim" which raised the issue to such a degree that the media, and eventually the authorities could no longer ignore the case?

Nah.... of course not... it's just some of that damned reverse racism.. silly me... us white folk just can't seem to catch a break, can we?

My old band... circa 1995...

good times...


lookout, lookout, the Candyman...

here he come and he's gone again...

Happy 64th birthday, Tony Iommi.
