Developing hood scoops for the drag racing Mopar Missile

Many tests were done with hood scoops. It seems that nothing was too far out for consideration. Take, for example, the twin funnel design.

Another design that was considered was side entry.

Another, more improbably design was the rear entry hood scoop, where air actually entered from around the back. This must have been fairly promising given the number of variations made.
