    #3 Yep, Wayne, they were supposed to bring cooler air into the intake manifold form outside the engine compartment. If coupled to a forward facing hood-mounted scoop, the idea was to increase delivery of a denser fuel/air mixture into the cylinders. Whether in practice it made a measurable difference was never clear to me. Although in small engines I think it did -- if combined with a tuned intake system. Cheers!

    #1 Yes, thanks @Phil Friedman. When I was a hi school kid, a friend went on and on about his homemade "cold air intake" on his Ford pickup truck. . . . It was basically an air duct going from the grille to the air cleaner input. I guess it did - something.

    I've seen pictures of - swamp coolers - on cars maybe from the 50s or 60s. Or I think that's what those were for. Looked like a rural mailbox mounted to the roof or the upper part of a window.
