12/22/07: Indiana Man Buys Truck With $25,000 In Change

Frankfort resident Paul Brant considers himself a penny pincher.

But it's his passion for saving quarters and gold dollar coins that's really paid off.

The 70-year-old used more than $25,000 in change Friday to buy a new Dodge Ram half-ton pickup truck
That purchase comes 13 years after he bought another truck using spare change.

Brant stored his change in coffee cans, water jugs and piggy banks over the years.

He said he got so much change by using vending machines at Chrysler in Kokomo, where he works.

Brant was escorted Friday by sheriff's deputies as he brought the rolled coins to the dealership.

He said he was raised to be thrifty. His father always paid in cash and saved up loose change to take vacations.
Now this is determination.:clap::clap:
