The only catch to buying this car, other than coming up with the scratch to pay for it, is you are going to have to want to break a record.

In just a couple of hours NASA's space shuttle Enterprise will ride piggyback on a 747 across the New York skyline, a kind of last gasp for NASA's spacecraft program. Now commercial efforts like the new Boeing private space capsule hope to pick up the outer space slack.
This is the tank you want rumbling through your town. Built on the back of a 1970 Ford Falcon, the Book Tank houses some 900 books on its frame and travels through the streets of Argentina making these books available — for free — for all who care to take one.
