Car Train Horn Installation

Howdy! I have this idea of installing a train horn on my car. What do you think? Your comments & suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks.

If you've ever seen a real train horn, you'd see why there's not even a remote possibility that you could do it.

If you're talking about hornblasters, you can put them in, but you'll lose most of your trunk for the air bottle, plus you'll have to find a spot to mount the two rather large horns. There isn't much open air under the hood of our cars.

as mentioned we don't have the space needed for train horns however you can use "air horns'.

the type of setup i am looking for is in fact what they have listed over at HB. i am not exactly sure why i want a train horn on my car, but i just want to do it. i have heard/seen a few in person, and it seems like a interesting accessory to have.

the issue i am running into is which one to get. i obviously will need an entire kit, but i dont know which one is best. i don't want to spend more than $475 or so. any suggestions? a few people have recommended HB like "94legendcpe", ebay, or this store. again, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

475.00 for a horn??? I'd start building a 3.5 or add other performance parts before attempting that. It however is your car so if you decide to go threw with it please keep us posted.

I remember seeing some youtube videos of people with train horns going around scaring people. (that could get you shot though.)
