A new type of vehicle rolled off an assembly line for the first time; a minivan, the Dodge Caravan and Plymouth Voyager. Famed automotive exec Lee Iacocca and companion Hal Sperlich designed a vehicle for Ford in the mid 70’s but the design was rejected. After moving on to Chrysler the two revised their design and provided it to Chrysler where it became an instant success. Reaching Car & Driver’s Top Ten list in its second production year.
