Head gaskets, any use?

The archaeological excavation of my father's workbench continues...

I found 4(!) head gaskets, but they all seem to be old and probably not fit for use. FWIW, the copper was only starting to delaminate on one of them. I also am fairly certain the one on the right has been used before.

They all look used, throw away unless you're a hoarder!

Get some red Solo cups then you could carry four beers at a time.

This reminds me of that old Guinness ad, where the guys keep going back and forth about the six pack shouting "brilliant!"
