Car dealership owned by Bud Adams destroyed by fire

2009 was a bad year for the football team owned by Bud Adams.

2010 is off to a less-than-ideal start for one of his other business.

NewsChannel5.com reports that a car dealership owned by Adams is engulfed in a “large 2-alarm fire.”

Flames consumed much of the building housing West Point Lincoln Mercury on Monday afternoon.

Witnesses reportedly heard a “loud pop” at 3:00 p.m. local time, and the building was evacuated safely.

    It was probably Marvin Harrison’s fault.

    A large “pop” huh? Sounds like arson to me. A little extra cash going into Mr. Adam’s pocket if he can get away with it unscathed. Good going, Bud.

    Witnesses said that a white male, approximately 91 years old who looked alot like Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson, was seen leaving the scene with a Bic lighter and flashing the finger towards Adams Owners-Box style office at the dealership.

    OK Florio.. Honestly I don’t mind a lot of the trash you post in between the real stories but this is about as irrelevant as can be.

    Probably a Bill’s fan getting even.

    Friction Fire. Happens when the mortgage rubs against the insurance policy.

    AGREED. What Bud “The Asshole” Adams did to the good people of Houston is every bit as bad as what the Irsays did to Baltimore and what Modell did to Cleveland. Too bad Bud wasn’t in the building at the time. LMFAO!!!!!!

    According to the reports here in Houston, or at least the last ones I heard, it was the parts warehouse that was engulfed in fire. It was not the dealership showroom or service/parts building, but the building and all the parts inside are sure to be written off as a loss.

    Any car or truck from Lincoln Mercury is cruddy anyway compared to a Honda, Nissan, Mercedes, BMW, etc… One of the vehicles could’ve suffered from spontaneous automobile combustion. That’s American workmanship for you, been that way for decades.

    Well I hate to say it, but old Bud has been trying out for a version 2 of Deliverance. Sounds like rehearsals went bad and his rubber started on fire during make you ” squeal like a pig” scene. Serves you right for going to Tennessee!!!
