Thomas L. Fawick of Sioux Falls, S.D. began experimenting and building an American Automobile in 1906. His first automobile was called the "Silent Sioux". Two years later, at the age of 19 he completed the "Fawick Flyer" believed to be the first five-passenger, four-door car built in the United States. He originally built a two-door Fawick Flyer before inventing the four-door one in 1910.

Thomas L. Fawick built two cars, which he called Silent Sioux before going into production with his Fawick Flyer. The Fawick Motor Car Company ceased production by 1912 after producing only 7 cars. Unfortunately, Fawick did not have the tremendous capital needed to expand his automobile business and compete with other major automobile manufacturers. He stopped production of the Fawick Flyer and moved to Waterloo, Iowa in 1914. Fawick lived in Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin and continued to design and invent items, mostly related to automobiles. Thomas L. Fawick was granted over 200 patents.
