Hot Slut Of The Day!

The Pontiac Trans Sport (the 1990-1996 models)!

One of my friends’ mom bought a Pontiac Trans Sport in the early-90s, and she went broke buying it. It was her dream mobile. If her children were worth any money, she definitely would’ve sold them to buy a Pontiac Trans Sports with cash. I never blamed her, because back then, I thought the Trans Sport was SO FORWARD. It looked like R2-D2 after he gave up on life and turned himself into a minivan.

The Pontiac Trans Sports minivan first came out in 1990 and they sold it as the “space vehicle of the 90s.”  And it was! Sure, when you look at that shit now it looks like a giant Dustbuster Transformer, but back then it looked like the future! (Okay, it looked like a Dustbuster on wheels then too.) Wikipedia says that sales for the Trans Sport were just “modest” and it never became a giant hit for Pontiac. The people just weren’t ready for a minivan spaceship whose next level futuristic looks had the power to take breaths away (and mostly because it’s hard to breath while you’re gagging on its ugliness).

Pontiac tried to save the Trans Sport in the mid-90s by completely redesigning it. They erased everything that was special about it and turned it into a basic bitch. The 1997 Pontiac Trans Sport looked like every other minivan. That didn’t work either. Pontiac killed the Trans Sport for good in the late-90s.

In this Trans Sport commercial from 1990, the badass handheld vacuum-looking bitch causes the heads of two of the Village People (the cop and the cowboy) to turn. Pontiac really did build excitement back then. Nowadays they build nothing since they shut down.

I haven’t seen a Trans Sport in a while. If I wanted to see one, I’d just go to the parking lot outside a Star Trek convention, because any self-respecting Trekkie owns a Trans Sport. And I’d like to think that my friend’s mom kept her Trans Sport and eventually took its beauty to the next level by turning it into the classically elegant Transvertible!
