I agree, any public space. I've done a few transactions on Craigslist and have met people at a local coffee shop. I've only bought something once, and the guy wanted to meet at his house, but I insisted on meeting outside of there (it was in a busy area of town).

If you have a friend that can't come with you, see if you can call them and leave the phone in your pocket or something so it's transmitting the entire time. Cell minutes are cheap, comparatively. They can call the cops and the cops can find you quickly if your cell is transmitting. We have a 2 story gym in town with glass windows overlooking the parking lot. Great place to meet up for Craigslist goods. I'm a pretty big guy and feel completely safe walking in a park at night, but I have seen Pulp Fiction. No reason not to be safe.

I don't think there is any obligation on Craigslist so whoever arrange to meet you first or has the best offer gets the item. The problem is half of the time, they might not show up. And that's why I actually prefer eBay over Craigslist.. this and safety issues.. though I have sold 4-5 cars though eBay and I had to delivery the cars to them in person.
I would bring 1 or more friends with me and I would pick very public place and make sure they DO NOT know anything about you.. I would not even let them see my car license plate because you do not want any creep to know where you live or follow you home..
