but you buy a used mac...

Saab convertible. I like how it handles, much better than the volvo C70 I test drove.
hough I prefer the power of my daughters better turbo, in her Saab that I'm also driving while she is away.

The main reason I bought it is I've always loved all the buttons in saabs. I had a 9-5 before this

Nice car, I have always liked Saabs especially convertables. A friend of mine had one-unusual place for the ignition key though!! must be a reason?
I have a convertable too, an SL55 which I really enjoy. I like to have three things down: my hair, the top (if its sunny) and my right foot especially in sexy high heels,

I've heard it said if was so you didn't hit it in a crash. the first ones were quite quirky, and were 2 stroke engines, so my guess is it was due to shorter wiring or something to do with manufacturing. I like it there, but it could have been another cup holder too.

I hate when it rains, especially if I have to take a long trip. I generally leave the top down all year, though in recent years, 30F is my limit in the winter.
