There was a 78 that took in ungodly money as well. Mind you, these cars were basic. Goes to show that these cars are still worth money to someone, stock, conversion, Ruf, Kremer, whatever, there is a buyer, even in this crashed economy.
one of the cars that "went across the block" (gawd i hate saying that as it sounds like you asre selling a cow or livestock) was a black 77 out of seattle (hyabusa's old car) it was for sale at a dealer in seattle tht aquired it as they were prepping it for the auction. they told me i could buy it for $36k before the put it on the truck to head to BJ. i passed thinking ok i'll be able to buyi it for less at BJ . I ended up registering to be an on line bidder. that car ended up going for $43k plus the 10% commision. of course i didn't buy it fot i guess i missed the boat on that one.

I think the point Tony makes:

There are buyers out there with specific desires that do not have the time to check out this site and others that have really great cars and when they see it at auction, they buy it. As you say other than the known brands of the old school racers. Once they get introduced to some of the currently well done such as some on this forum build they will really spend to get it.

is spot on.
