Weapons of Mass Instruction: Watch a 1979 Ford Falcon Get Converted in a Tank Armored with 900 Free Books

He has a wild look in his eyes, but a beau­ti­ful idea in his mind. Meet Raul Leme­soff, an eccen­tric char­ac­ter from Buenos Aires, who takes old cars and turns them into “mil­i­taris­tic bib­lio­the­cas” that dri­ve the streets of Argenti­na, giv­ing free books to those who want them. This is an ongo­ing project for Leme­soff, but the weaponized 1979 Ford Fal­con you see above was spe­cial­ly cre­at­ed to cel­e­brate World Book Day on March 5th. You can thank 7UP for com­mis­sion­ing that project.
