For sure a dusty road would fill the engine compartment.
Lots of dust in the bay, but also a better weight distribution. If this is water cooled, there must be a cooling system wedged forward somehow. Interesting. More pics, from two different cars... more revealing:

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
