Ohio man buys new truck with thousands of coins

CINCINNATI (AP) -- James Jones says he doesn't trust paper money. That's why the Ohio man paid half the cost of a new $16,000 pickup truck with coins yesterday.

Workers at a suburban Cincinnati dealership spent 90 minutes counting the 16 coffee cans full of dimes, quarters, half-dollars and dollar coins.

The 70-year-old Jones and his wife wrote a check for the other half.
