    Looks completely staged, but I like it.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    Many years ago, My dad had a car parts and accessories shop. We got a new Falcon wagon as a family car. Dad did not like the pissy little beeper horn in it so he replaced it with a set of Maserati twin tone air horns. He forgot / neglected to mention this to mum. One day she is driving down market street in Blenheim. A very narrow slow one way street with shops all around. She was stuck behind a pedestrian who must have thought it was a mall and was walking in the middle of the street without a care in the world. Mum gave him a toot on the horn giving it a good "lean on" to let him know there was a car behind him and that he should probably move onto the foot path. This guy got a full blast of the air horn from about a foot behind his arse and scared the living shit out of him, but to this day, Mum still tells us that she got a bigger surprise that the pedestrian...

    Everyone including those in the shops had turned to look what was happening...I only wish I had been old enough to remember it.

    I got truck air horn off an underground loader that was to be scrapped-maybe 500mm long.
    Got some fittings and modified an old out of date 9kg lpg cylinder for a donkey bottle and hosed it up to the boot. It had a bike valve so you could top it up at a petrol station and a quick loosen with a small crescent and it could be taken out.
    Hooked up a pneumatic valve arrangement I found from an old methane shut down system (also off an underground machine) and wired it into a missile switch on the dash so I didn't beep it when I wasn't ready.
    never got to use it in anger just for shits and giggles, but it sounds spectacular-nice and deep-and loud.
    Got another one so I could fit a pair up now although I would get a proper valve for the job this time.

    Used to have alsorts on the truck in Africa even the Good Bye PorkPie train horn had to be careful using that one as it would drain the air and lock up ya brakes (1017 Mec air over hydraulics) used to just have a beep horn when I fixed on the train one told my work mate that I'd fixed a lose nut that used to rattle when the engine started could she please put her head near while stand at the front and see if she could still hear it........ I was not flavour of the month

    Had an old Ambo siren as well but you had to keep flipping the switch on our off as otherwise it would just keep winding up like an air raid siren. That was a lot of fun in heavy traffic.
    Saved our ass from a full on elaphant charge in Namibia. Threw that on and young bull just lifted his head braking his full on charge from about ten meters away and carried on run right past us. Thought we were goners for sure! He kept going trumpeting off into the distance. Took me a good half hour to stop shaking. The passages were all in tears as well. Bloody desert elephants

    I reckon I can top all those stories, when I was a kid (late 60's) Dad wrecked a couple of big International trucks for the chassis. One of them still had a fairly complete cab and I found some amazing stuff to loot in there!!

    But what topped it was a very large electric horn, I rigged it up on my pushbike with a spotlighting battery (12volt, so the 6V horn didn't last that long) but man it sounded good. I slipped in behind the milk Tanker ( @oraki ) just on dark one night and followed him down the drive - gave him a big blast about half way down and man did he do a big wobble. Then it was my turn to shit myself, he pulled up real quick and hopped out to give me a fairly plain language bollocking.

    He told Dad about it later and he tried to tell me off but it must have given the driver such a big fright Dad had quite a struggle not laugh himself silly too.
