They're definitely all working...it's deeper in person, but I don't think the newer ones sound quite as bassy as the old '70s Caddy horns. Part of it's probably the microscopic mic in the digital camera too.

I have 70's Caddy horns in my 01, and almost brand new park avenue horns in the 03. The 03's sound just like Jim's park avenue horns. I wonder if it is buick's 4 note horns or just maybe because they are newer?

I gotta do this mod on the vibe. That car horn has a 'meep meep' sound to it. Honestly don't know whether to laugh or cry when I hit it.

2003 Taurus SEL Premium: so far just the tint that came with it.

That is pretty bad.

I am going to go find some horns next time I'm at the junkyard for my Taurus...they won't sound like Dave's car, but good enough. Seriously, if you lay on the horn in Dave's car you wake Jesus up.

I almost bought a ZX2 when I was looking for a Taurus replacement. It was a 2003 Premium with the one year front end. I liked it well enough, but I was much more at home in my Ranger.
