This is the DOHC V8 of a 1954 Pegaso Z-102. It’s a thing of beauty, what with its staggered carbs and crinkle finished cam covers. It’s not the engine however that I’d like to point out in this picture. Instead, I’d like you to notice the silver funnel that sits just to the left of the generator and below the hood latch. That’s there because the scoop in the hood ramps down from its leading edge, and any precipitation that might find its way down that ramp might end up dousing the gennie. There’s a catchwall and a tube at the back of the scoop that directs any water down to this funnel, and then through a tube to the ground below. Clever, no?
