Stage one is obviously the best. Stage two is paper mache and stage three is bird feathers and wood glue.

LMAO. And there's SO much of it: Giuliani, Thompson, Romney, Paul, Edwards .....

I suspect the Republican signs are more robust and can withstand the heat, but the Democratic signs are more bio-degradable ......

I think the guy's got a legitimate complaint. That's quite clearly a cardboard turbocharger.

Yeah, I think a a biodegradable turbo is a very forward-thinking idea, very Saab-like.

What if you ran that with your existing turbo?

Any gains to be had before it caught fire?
