Sad times are approaching folks … next weekend I’ll be taking the Shockers out of our little Suzuki Swift because we have to sell the car. My work is providing me with a new vehicle, so the wife will get my 4x4 (with the K3) and I’ll be driving something new in Feb. Alas there is no opportunity to install horns into the company car :mad:.
So… the dilemma was - do we sell the Swift with or without the Shocker install? In the end two thing swayed me: 1) Everyone thinks we’re f’ing crazy for having horns like this in the car; chances of finding someone to appreciate the install are very slim. 2) I just love them too much to part with them. They will find a new home … eventually … even if it’s as a door bell
So - as if by fate, one final hurrah - here we were driving on the weekend to a hardware store and waiting at a busy underpass. Someone starts beeping their horn for the fun of it (you know the classic rhythm; 5 short beeps followed by a pause and then two more) - “meep, beep, beep, beep, beeeep - beep,beep”. Others start joining in and soon there were about 3 or four cars beeping.

“meeep , meeeeep” - HOOOOONK!
<stunned silence> … as everyone is craning their neck to see where THAT came from. Meanwhile me and the wife are sitting there chuckling uncontrollably. First I was ruing the fact we weren’t in the 4x4 with the K3, but heck I was having more fun than a kid in a candy store.
Anyway, the whole cycle repeated about 4 or five times. I must have drained that tank at least 3 times before the lights changed.
Damn… I’m gonna miss those horns.
