Longhorns indeed. haha

I was at a cruise event last year that had some diesel truck guys and there a couple guys that had train horns. Now those are really loud!!!! 1 1/2 in air lines. They were only good for a few short blasts before the air tanks were too low. It took a couple minutes for the compressors to catch up.

I used to have a truck driver that had 3 set's of train horns on his semi come in to pick up freight. He had to run added air tanks for them and every time he showed up, everyone would holler at him to blow his horns and then cover their ears!

Bought a set of horns for my 2006 Silverado from Advance when the factory ones quit. Nice hi/lo set that sound a lot like OEM but a lot cheaper.

Believe it or not, the best sounding horns I have ever owned are the factory horns on our 1998 Mercury Villager minivan.


It's a two-tone horn and it is very loud and authoritative.

If you are in the wrecking yard, you can also look for the Nissan Quest minivan, as the Villager is just a re-badged Quest.

Good luck!

Cheers, Ken
