William Bushnell Stout, an aeronautical engineer from Dearborn, Michigan built 9 cars of which none were ever sold in the retail market. Five are known to survive. Stout also founded America's first scheduled airline which later became United Airlines. But, it is the Stout Scarab that he is most remembered for.

Built of lightweight aluminum over a tubular steel frame, the Scarab was one of the most aerodynamic cars of its day. Powered by a flathead V8 mounted flywheel-forward atop the rear wheels, the Scarab could go from zero-to-sixty mph in 15 seconds. The list of buyers were a Who's Who - the Firestone family had one, the Wrigley's and the Dows of Dow Chemical each owned one. Despite its near 200 inch length and 72-inch height, the Scarab weighed slightly over 3,000 pounds. Today's minivans use a lot of Scarab's pioneering ideas.
