    But... This makes no sense? Were they for sale in Europe?

    I don't remember the Buick-engined version though. The ones I saw had always the 16 valve engine.

    Today I learned Pontiacs were sold in Europe. What a time it would have been to be alive.

    They were probably sold threw the Opel (GM) network.
    Because I can’t remember any Pontiac, Chevrolet or Cadillac dealers

    Indeed they were distributed via Opel/Vauxhall dealers (just read about it). And maybe also some examples via independent US car importers.

    There were a few experiments of this type in the late 80's / early 90's including an EDM Buick Park Avenue and more than a few Chryslers...

    The obscure truth is that, apparently, after the first gen Trans Sport was facelifted into something more resembling a car the EDM Trans Sport was changed to a rebadged Oldsmobile Silhouette (which didn't receive the car-like facelift) because Europeans were used to avant-garde desings.

    Yes, (former) Europeans have a proud history of vacuum-cleaner design.

    Yes, I always thought the Trans Sport looked like one of these with windows all around.
