A new partnership between Ford and Jose Cuervo.

Yes, Jose Cuervo, the tequila Jose Cuervo.

Turns out once the tequila’s made, there’s a bunch of really fibrous agave plant stuff left over.

Ford says it could use it to make wiring harnesses or cup holders, maybe.

Interestingly, Ford already uses soy foam, castor oil, wheat straw, coconut fiber and rice hulls in its cars.

Me? I drink beer.
