I seriously want to do that. Not the weenie air horns you get at Kragen, but some burly harmonic semi truck horns.

If you can't hear it from at least a mile away, it's not a real horn.

that owner is probably an air horn fanatic and only uses them in a desolate area with other owners for the pure enjoyment of restoring and using an antique horn


myself.. I just want to scare the stupid girl going 10 under in the left lane with a cellphone in one hand and eyes not on the road chitless

When I was 17, I put a loud obnoxious horn in my dad's chevy van and used it for that purpose. It got a more entertaining reaction than the stock horn. http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/Product/tf-Browse/s-10101/Pr-p_Product.CATENTRY_ID:2009071/p-2009071/N-111+10201+600015146/c-10101

The Titanic's horn was salvaged several years back, maybe you could get your hands on it?
You can hear it at: http://www.cnn.com/US/9902/21/titanic.whistle/horn.1.wav
