'Storage Wars:' Competition Breeds a Valuable Unit Find


On Wednesday night's episode of "Storage Wars," Mary didn't let a little competition from our favorite bad guy Dave get between her and a pretty valuable locker.

As usual, Dave was looking to terrorize the rest of the bidders out in Costa Mesa, California, by bidding high and then dropping out.

But Mary wasn't having any of it when it was her turn to fight for the unit of her dreams.

"$1,450, how about $1,500?" said auctioneer Dan Dotson on "Storage Wars."

"Yup! Shut him out. Is that you, Mary? Doing that to me?" asked Dave Hester.

"Yes! I'm not doing it to you, Dave. You're supposed to help me out!" said Mary.

"Are you bidding?" asked Dave.

But despite Dave's shenanigans, Mary stuck to her guns and scored the locker for $1,500.

It was the most Mary had ever spent on a storage unit. But after poking around inside, she soon discovered it was well worth the price.

On top of finding tons of smaller treasures that added up to over $2,000, Mary also dug up this musical gem.

"Wow. Vintage music equipment. This looks pretty legit," said Mary.

And legit it was! Turns out Mary's big find was actually a vintage drum machine from the early 1980s, not unlike the ones used by hip-hop artists like the Beastie Boys.

Most drum machines like this sell for between $100 and $300. But Mary's, on the other hand was worth a whopping...

"Say, $2,000?" said Nick from Noisebug Synthesizer Store.

"Awesome!" said Mary.

The machine brought the value of Mary's locker up to $4,275. Now, that's music to our ears. Take that, Dave!
