Umm, I think you can drive them in the Winter, they can be used with the top up, in case you weren't aware.

Why would it be mentioned it was a convertible if the top wasn't down?

Why was it mentioned it was a Saab, I don't know, but it didn't mention the driver having the top down.

ok first and for most this artical is wrong.......... David did not go through the red light or hit the truck.... ....Richard Simon went through the red light and hit david and he t- boned Davids car..... as of this david is at north recovering for his ingeries and has to have facial reconstruction... as Richard Simon's truck messed David up bad...... David has a long road of recovery and therapy ahead of him........ at least the newspaper can do is get the story straight

The man driving the truck was trying to beat a red light and FAILED miserably! There is video from the gas station next to the accident sight showing this. The grill of the truck was in-bedded 2 feet into David's car.... So explain to me how David hit the truck????
