I was out with the grand kids at our favorite breakfast place this past weekend, reading the paper...when I came across this article in the WSJ. Here it is. Really interesting how the automakers are finally using magnesium to lower the weight of certain car parts, despite the fact that magnesium parts can be five to 10 times more expensive than a conventional steel part.

I learned the Pacifica has a magnesium tailgate. Should make it easier to open and close.

Better watch out for thieves, they might want to steal our tailgates, turn it into a solid cube and sell it to some metal recycling company :D
