Default Is this a good deal for a D70?

I found this listing, but I had been looking mainly at Canons, so I am not sure if this is a deal or not. Thanks!

==================
I bought this DIGITAL SLR Nikon D70 camera a couple of years ago. I have kept it in pristine condition, never dropped and no damage. I bought the body then I chose the upper end Nikon lens: Nikon 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5 G-APS ED-IX DX lens. This itself was $350! The body was 999.00! Camera works perfectly. AND I have a Hoya UV multicoated filter and a Hoya circular polarizing filer. Both are high end, too! I do landscape photography…Also adding a 160 compact flash card and 2 camera bags (one is a top load Lowepro but the zipper is not working too great. It closes but one one way zip. I can email you pics)


I have all the items that came in the box but I do not have the boxes.
Included are: D70 body and Nikkor/Nikon lens, rechargeable lithium-ion battery EN-EL3a, quick charger MH-18a, video cable, USB cable UC-E4, strap, body cap, eyepiece cap DK-5, rubber eyecup DK-20, 2 LCD monitor covers (I lost one then found it again in London at my friend’s house), BM-5, PictureProject CD-ROM. HB-32 hood, 67mm lens cap, and rear cap.

What's a 160 compact flash card? i know what a compact flash card is, but 160? 160GB? or 160MB? or is it a 16GB if it is the latter then that is one heck of a deal since the 16GB CF card itself is $200-300!
