Setting up a car buy online

So I found a deal on a car that I dont want to pass up, but the problem is this guy wants cash, not a cashiers check which is what I was planning on bringing. Seems a little sketchy to me but, the car is in NYC so I dont want to make 2 trips and I can only go this Sunday so no banks are open. I dont want to get like mugged or something carrying that kind of bankroll on me so I'm a little skeptical on driving out there in my friends truck towing the car trailer and end up get screwed.

Any thoughts/opinions on the matter???

Hmmmm.........is it in a nice area or crappy?

Is the deal "too good"?

Is there a such thing as a nice area in NYC.

Slightly below market value. 2000 Subaru Imprezza 2.5 RS 5spd 58k miles $8,800

The ones around here are 100k mile $10,000 so this is the best deal I've come across.

Nah. Just get one of those big mace dealies, you know, from the dark ages with lots of spikes? Swing it around wildly while rolling your eyes around and making sounds like the girl in The Exorcist.

I find that when I do that, people tend to leave me alone.
