During the shakedown cruise/maiden voyage of the trailer a couple weekends ago, one of the things we did to pass the time while it rained was watch movies. A friend of mine loaned me RV
, starring Robin Williams. While obviously not Oscar material, it was topically entertaining. One thing about the movie that really had me laughing though, was the motorhome being driven by the co-stars. Specifically, it was the horn
that motorhome was equipped with:
At the 1:20 mark you will hear the horn. It plays the opening notes to the theme from Star Trek
. Upon hearing it the first time in the movie (the movie trailer (no pun intended) shows it playing again later) I exclaimed "I GOTTA HAVE THAT HORN!" among my laughter. So, the other day, on a whim, I did some research and found that a company called Wolo makes it (along with every imaginable musical horn), and it can be bought
at, of all places, Amazon.com. Since I had a growing list of CDs and DVDs to order, I just had to append that noisemaker to the list. Since I have some gauges and work to do on the truck, I figure I will toss this in for some fun. When I first got the truck way back when, the rather lame, auto horns that came with the truck could not cut it given it's snarling, macho diesel character, so I installed a set of air horns to give it a bit more 'authority'. What's a few more?
Yeah, I'm a geek.
