Default Restore a Muscle Car in Lincoln NE bad for Pontiac Hobby?

So in September of last year there was an auction that had numerous Pontiac's being auctioned off. And there were several in the Pontiac community that were there trying to get a particular car. One car in particular was a 1971 455Ho Lucerne Blue with white interior, 4sp that several people had their eyes on. In the end Restore a Muscle Car out bid everyone and got the 455ho for $92K including bidders fee. Literally days later it was on their website and although they do not post the price, it was for sale for $119K - Nearly 30K higher and they did nothing to the car. Essentially RAMC prevented Pontiac collectors and enthusiasts from purchasing the car and then stuck a price tag on it that is well above market value and makes it prohibitive for the enthusiasts to get the car.

Fast forward to today and it appears that they are sending Numerous cars to be auctioned off in Saudi Arabia, most likely never to be seen in the US again.

So the question becomes how can pricing cars out of the range of the people that keep the Pontiac hobby alive and shipping cars in mass over seas be beneficial to the hobby?
