Chinese man buys $140,000 car using coins

That’s a lot of spare change.

A Chinese man reportedly bought $140,000 car Tuesday almost entirely with coins.

The man, who works at a gas station, says he collected the coins from buses that stopped to refuel and decided to save them up for a new car, reports, citing the Liaoshen Evening News.

He walked into a Shenyang dealership and used $136,000 in coins and $4,000 in banknotes to buy his new vehicle.

Ten staff members from the dealership spent an hour moving the coins from the back of a truck into the store. The coins weighed four tons overall and were over 12 feet tall when piled up.
