    There has been talk on here lately of vehicle modifications, ETC. Well, here is mine LOL

    A friend gave me an air horn that was installed on his boat. He sold the boat, and I got to laughing one day saying how funny it would be to put it on my personal pickup truck. So I did. Compressor and all. I wired in a switch below my dashboard and if I want to scare the **** out of someone I just hit the switch and watch them jump LOL

    You think it is loud under a bridge? Well, we have 2 casinos here that have multiple parking garages. Many times I have taken a drive through there and if I see a group of people walking, I hit the air horn and they freak! LOL!
    It is also funny as hell when you see a group of "Homies" walking to hit it, man they get pissed!

    I have had it about 6 months now, and have had a lot of fun with it. Even driving through a mall or a parking lot it can be funny as hell.

    I have gotten a couple of people so mad that they want to pull me out of my truck, and I hit the gas and get the hell away LOL

    A word of advice in case someone wants to get crazy like me and do this.......watch who you do it around........I don't do it around elderly people or anyone handicapped or in any way might look like they have a health condition that would give them a heart attack if they got the pants scared off of them........seriously, you could be held liable if you hurt someone!


    Another thing I do just to be an ass and annoy the hell out of people (LOL) is drive around parking lots & stuff with my bass so loud you can hear it across the parking lot....... this you can get by with and not get into too much trouble.

    Eventually I am going to get a new truck, but I am going to keep the one I have. Then I am going to do some paint detainling, and I want to have "Jackass mobile" or something along that line air brushed on the sides LOL

    Yeah be careful who you do it around. They may jump out in front of you.

    I've considered changing out or adding to the wimpy sounding horn on the 2001 Chev sevicetruck. A '80's vintage caddi horn from a junkyard would probably do just fine.

    Ever tried it against one of those very low bass/reverb outfits that make your marrow melt when it pulls up next to you at a red light? I've been trying to figure out a way to get back ot those cats.
    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.

    I have an air compressor in my basement that's plumbed in to an old fifty gallon water heater. It's plumbed around to various locations around my house with 1" pipe, so I can operate a jackhammer or other air tools for a short period until the tank is exhausted. (Probably puts out 50 horsepower for 10-15 seconds).

    I've toyed with the idea of plumbing up a really loud air horn by my front door, and using the doorbell to open an air valve for about five seconds or so before it closes. I figure that would give the 7th Day Adventists and Morman Missionaries something to talk about when they got home.
