Coolest thing found on a trash-out??

I remember reading an article 20-some years ago about a guy stumbling up on a 1955 Porsche Speedster (barn find) and getting it for $100. Owner was older and apparently just didn't care. That story always stuck with me. Few REO guys I know had some decent finds. I haven't come across much worth talking about. Curious how others have made out. Anything good?

I know a lady who got 2 low miles VW bugs, (late models) from a Fannie house where the people skipped the country. Cars had no liens on them and she was able to get the titles. Her twin daughters now drive them.
There was a few other vehicles as well.....

We got a bass boat once, a Ninja ZX 750, a few cars and a camper. Nothing terribly exciting. Probably the coolest thing we ever got was a coin collection.

We picked this up last week. Went through an eviction and everything. With a new battery it runs like a top.

Maybe the most utilized has been this raft we found. Brand new in the plastic wrapping. This thing was in the river every weekend this summer.
