Dream come true for Iowa lottery winner

An East Moline man who bought a $1 million Iowa winning lottery ticket is now embarking on a shopping trip of a lifetime to buy his dream car: a 1972 Ford Mustang fastback.

1972 Ford Mustang fastbackDanny Lovett, 60, bought the winning ticket from a central Iowa convenience store last month while on his truck route from Davenport to Des Moines.

His ticket was one number away from winning a part of the $55 million jackpot which continues to increase in value until it's claimed, but Lovett is far from disappointed with his new millionaire staus.

"You count and you count and you look and it's like, 'There's no way!'" Lovett said in a news release Monday. "Then you wake people up out of bed so they can see, too. It's a great thing."

Along with his dream car Danny says he will use the money to buy a house, add to his retirement savings and help out his family.

According to the news release from the Iowa Lottery, more than $4.2 billion has been awarded to Iowa Lottery players and more than $1.9 billion to state programs since the program's inception in 1985.
