    Yep, thanks Mario. :clap:

    Now the traffic cops have some firepower to catch up to you in your Lambo doing 180. :truck:

    Yeah, because with all the crime problems Houston has, we need more traffic enforcement. :facepalm:

    a lot less likely to have your license suspended if you buy the cops new cars.

    Hahaha, I was thinking along the same line, too.

    Does Mario still have a house here?

    I'm guessing this is Mario's last F U to the city of Houston.

    He donated five Camaros to HPD in 2011. Must be a hell of a tax write-off.

    Link.

    I remember reading that, and received a speeding ticket from a white Camaro with faded police lettering on it a couple months letter. 70 in a 60 zone on I-10.

    Screw you, Mario.

    I think Buffalo is about the same size as Pearland these days. :lol:

    Pearland is just an incorporated suburb of Houston.

    Whatever the reason donating 5 cars to HPD ain't a bad thing. Rather nice gesture by Mario even if it is a tax write-off as Mario can easily donate the cars or money elsewhere.

    Mario dates my neighbor. I think he must still live here in the offseason.

    Why is everybody still so snippy with Williams ? He got a chance to make a lot of money (again), and went with the deal in Buffalo. In the meantime he still apparently lives in Houston in the offseason and/or still has sentiments about the city and made a significant and very valuable contribution to that city.
    Congrats Mario on being a good citizen - all Houstonians should be grateful for your generosity.
