Mario has owned the car for two years, and although Daniel had done quite a bit of work on the car, there were a few minor touches that Mario added to the car. One addition Mario did incorporate was the plaque of the Traffic Car Club, which adorns the Impala's back window. A member of Traffic Car Club for two years, Mario and his family also enjoy club activities and outings. Mario says that he won't be letting this car go anytime soon, since he still has more upgrades in mind. Next time you're at a show in the Southern California area, look for the Indigo Blue Impala that's surrounded by a whole lot of Traffic! That's where you'll find Mario and his family.
