I need to find out the make and model of cigarette filter (or holder, im not sure which it is), that Hunter S Thompson used to smoke out of, I'm pretty sure that Johnny Depp uses the same one in the film "Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas", so yeah that's what I need to find out!

Oops... I didn't mean to request clarification. The answer should be down here. The specific make and model of Hunter S. Thompson's cigarette holder/filter was the "TarGard Permanent Cigarette Filter System." http://www.targard.com/shop.php?categoryParentName=Targard&categoryName=Permanent+Cigarette+Filter+System Some Hunter S. Thompson fans mention the TarGard brand in this newsgroup thread archived by Google Groups: http://groups.google.com/group/alt.journalism.gonzo/browse_thread/thread/2e525a1a18c741b/86cd139b7e61acd1?lnk=st&q=filter+cigarette+%22hunter+*+thompson&rnum=4&hl=en#86cd139b7e61acd1 Indeed, photos of Thompson using this filter may be seen in an expired eBay auction: http://imagehost.vendio.com/bin/viewimage.x/00000000/strangerumblings/filter_001.jpg?allow_mailing_list=1&owner_id=897485&allow_track_link=1&track=023133a3af-db1cd&pt=bidpay&sp=1 http://cgi.ebay.com/Hunter-S-Thompson-Cigarette-Filter-Holder-RARE-GOLD-1_W0QQitemZ6228018450QQcategoryZ133QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem (Apparently, the Thompson connection resulted in this item being sold on eBay for three times its retail price!) ------ search strategy: google groups: filter cigarette "hunter * thompson "tar gard" filter "targard" filter I hope this helps.
