OP doesn't have to "justify" anything. He wants to make an offer... the current owner can take it or leave it. No harm, no crime, no foul, no "need to justify." Hell, I'd be happy to entertain offers on any used car I ever owned... and if the price was good enough to make me happy, I'd go for it. If not, tough luck, pal. The OP is not planning to kill the current owner and steal the car, as far as I can tell... just wants to make a valid business proposal.
