This reminds me of the time I hired a Moke in Barbados. It had just rained and the sandy tracks I was driving along had large but shallow puddles. Driving fast through the water threw it up over the engine and the electrics died. But, wait a few minutes and the heat of the engine dried everything off, and I was able to restart and drive on. Just a badly placed distributor or coil, perhaps. Or the water got onto the sparking plugs and the leads, shorting them out.
