I have a boss that sez he wants a saab just like mine. but it has to be a convertible. I don't know if I have seen a 1985 convertible. (there is not that many cars of my era driving around in my neck of the woods). does anyone know the history of saab convertible. I know that for a while there were no american companys producing convertible. I thought it was in the 80's. rod
