Back story here:
I remember playing in a 1972 Fiat 124 Sport Coupe in our garage.... My Dad rebuilt it. And when he did he put a larger engine in it and suped it up. He gave it to my older brother when he turned 16. My older bro tore the car up and did not appreciate it at all.... Everything on it was original even the paint (Yeah no clear coat either) and in amazing condition (NO RUST!!), until my Older Bro got it.... It was Smurf Blue. We called it, "The Smurf Killer". After my older bro had it who beat the ever living piss out of it and did alot of body damage to it, I ended up getting it. I brought it back to health, and suped it up even more... Ended up selling it. I pulled the hornes before we sold it. Anyway, the horns on it were air horns.... VERY VERY LOUD HORNS!! I have seen aftermarket Fiat Horns w/ plastic ends... Whatever they suck.... These things are the real deal and are VERY LOUD!!! The trumpet end on both horns are metal. They pack a punch.
Where do you suggest me mounting them? Anyone w/ air horn knowledge help me out. I was curious if I could extend the air tube w/o hurting the loud sound?
Here is the horn. Even was painted Smurf Killer Blue.

Re: Where to place these horns... (Henni)

you can mount those on my car. please send them to vegas.
longer hose will take longer for the motor to get air to the horn, so it will seem a bit delayed. I had a set of Hadley horns on my Jeep and trucks, those things were no joke!

Too sentimental to send.... Sorry.

They will be going on the ThunderTank. I have yet to see ANY air horn compare to these, other than a Mac-Truck horn.

Clearly he is talking about a speed contest between water vessels constructed out of reinforced paper products.
