1990-1993 Pontiac Trans Sport


Lancaster, Pennsylvania (PA), US
The Pontiac Trans Sport got its start in 1986 as a futuristic minivan concept; it featured gull-wing doors, a glass roof, and even a built-in Nintendo Entertainment System! It was also displayed at Epcot's World of Motion attraction, in which the concept would have positive reception, but due to how costly the gull-wing doors and glass roofing would be on a production car, the final product, in which it began production in December 1989, together with Chevrolet's Lumina APV and Oldsmobile Silhouette, for the 1990 model year. Intended to capture customers focusing on sport and style, all three minivans on GM's U-Body had controversial styling, and were therefore known as the "Dustbuster" vans, after the Dustbuster handheld vacuum cleaner.
