What was the price of posting to Craigslist "erotic services" before the May 2009 switch to "adult services"?

I am an academic economist who studies the economics of underground markets, particularly methamphetamine markets and (separately) commercial sex markets in the United States. One of the things I'm currently studying is various aspects of Craigslist's entry into the commercial sex markets in US cities over time. In November of 2008, Craigslist adopted a new rule that required everyone to pay $5-10 per advertisement posted to their "erotic services" section. This article supports this claim: [more inside]

Some questions about selling a car

Car selling questions: (1) Is there any reason for me, as a seller, not to disclose the VIN in a car ad, say on Craigslist? A Carfax lookup would reflect favorably on this car, but I don't know if there are "car identity thief" issues here. I know dealers list VINs all the time. (2) What is considered a reasonable precaution if someone wants to take a test drive or have their mechanic inspect the car? I'm not sure what would stop a thief from asking for a test drive and then never coming back. This is an older model car so I don't have any loss/damage coverage, but I'm guessing I should until it's sold.
