while we were in maine last month, we visited the owls head transportation museum.
one of the pieces on display was a 1935 Stout Scarab. a handbuilt car of which only a handful were ever produced. it was ridiculously expensive for the time.
i finally remembered to look it up – get this. rear engine, cab-forward driving position. flexible seating with a small table that can be deployed. unit-body construction. four wheel independent suspension.
what was that year again? 1935.
