Just curious do you think this guy is a scammer

Hi thanks for mailing back,i really appreciate it,am ok with the
condition and the price,i won't be able to come for the inspection due
to my work basis,i am a petroleum engineer am offshore at the moment,
i am buying it as a gift for my son who just graduated from the
University,i want to make it a surprise for him,he wont know anything
about it until they get delivered to him,i can only pay through PayPal
as i don't have access to my bank account online as i don't have
internet banking,but i have my bank acct attached to my PayPal account
and this is why i insisted on paying you through PayPal, i have a pick
up agent that will come around to pick it up after i have made the
payments for the it

Condition is fine just your usual wear and tear what you find on most cars 20years old .. I believe the price is far considering I payed 7 grand for it and that was. Before I did the work on the clutch but I will go to 5.9

I'd say that he is for sure - you may notice that in his reply he doesn't actually refer to a car but only to "it"? That's a scammer trademark.

I will heed the advice of a polite horse for it is written that more flies are caught with honey than vinegar... although assault carbines and monstrous wolves are still fun.

Definitely a scam. The writing style is Nigerian, and this type of scam always features a personal shipper/pick-up agent. Buying the item as a present is also a common feature.
You'd be sent an email supposedly from Paypal confirming payment and asked to sent part of it by Western Union to the agent.

Welcome here iainmcfly.

If you would do a search for some key phrazes, you'll find lots of similar emails posted on the various scam baiting sites. Google is your friend.
