Horn Upgrades?

Has anyone upgraded their horn? The horn in our trucks is laughable..

I'd love to get something similar to that of semi, etc.. that deep throaty air horn sound.

Thoughts?

I had a set of twin tone Hadleys (just like on an 18 wheeler) with the celing mounted pull chain and everything on my last van

... they need a pretty good ar compressor to get blasting .. but I had a 1 HP air compressor on that van.

AND ..... I saved them when I sold it ... I'm thinking of getting air on the Commander anyway, if I do I will definaltey put the Hadleys on

There was this one guy in high school with a souped up Ford pickup that had the horn from JC Whitney that played tunes. THey'd drive around blasting "Dixie" all the time. Seems like in the South in the late 70's/early 80's every high school had one of these clowns. :-)

That's similar to what I'm looking for.. Any idea of a cost? Or where to buy?

This is what I'm thinking...

Thoses look a little nicer than my ten year old ones ... The compressor I had was a common 120VAC one I ran it off an inverter. I think I got the air horns from JC Whitney at the time.

Hmm .... all we need is some justification then ...
