Courts don't usually look at cars that way. In the condition that you describe it is worth about $250. for scrap to Mom's creditors. I'd have her sell it to you for $300 just to be safe. Take photos of the car, have an uninterested person (Neighbor, Minister, Coworker, etc.) witness the transaction, and get a signed receipt from Mom. All this may be overkill but this way, if there's any questions, all your bases are covered. Be sure to complete the transaction BEFORE Mom files. HTH. - Jim
