The story of Lance Reventlow and his Scarab race cars fascinates me. I hope you enjoy these videos that were introduced to me by Scott, a My Car Quest reader.

Part 1 is here.

Read my other articles about Lance Reventlow and the Scarab here and here.

  1. Hi Mike, You may already have this book, if not

Lerner, 1991, 1st ed., follows the history of the cars and some of the colorful people who made up the team including its leader Lance Reventlow, follows the victories and losses while also looking at the privates lives of some of those involved.


  2. Kjell,
