What's the best homebrew "Score" you've ever made?

I got 8 legal Stainless Kegs (some with beer) for $80.
I keep thinking of selling some. I only use one two at present. One for my keggle and the other to distil...erm...water.

But If I sell them then I doubt I could replace them legally if required for future projects.
I think one or two may became a BBQ/Grill.
Have a beer on me.

My two best scores so far have been free "stuff".

Got this below from a buddy who moved and didn't want to take it with him

And a guy at work who refused to take any $ (I tried, hard!) to build my 3-tier frame.

(can't figure out why the images won't show in the msg. Bahhh)

From the punch line thread:

That's me.

Even the $10 secondaries I found, went on sale for $6!
