you'd really be buying it from the 60 year old guy, does he seem like he knows the cars worth? or is he more likely to view it as his mother/mother in laws older car?
Im betting if its his moms car, the price will be higher than mother in laws car.

This could go either way. You could get a 150% markup for sentimental reasons, or you could get a super discount for pragmatic lets get rid of it / going to a good home reasons.

My grandmother sold her late 90s much loved 60k 5-speed mint accord for about 700 bucks since it "was going to a good home".
