The Scripps-Booth Company was established in late 1914.

James Scripps-Booth was the designer of several interesting motor vehicles. His first was the Bi-Autogo, which was a three-seater vehicle that was rather like a massive elongated motorcycle.

By the end of 1917 the Scripps-Booth had been absorbed by Chevrolet and became part of General Motors but was discontinued in 1922 after a total production of 60,000 cars. James Scripps-Booth had by now thought up a new and innovative automobile design to be called the Da Vinci.
