    I wish they had an incredibly cool horn like this.

    I'm not sure about the title; think the horn's ok.

    Reluctant to watch the video, at least until I can find some ear buds lol.

    i had a childhood friend who's father was from cuba. whenever he drove, he constantly tooted the horn. must have been a cultural thing.

    The trivia page for that movie says what horns were used. You can buy those.

    The movie itself is listed among The 100 Most Enjoyably Bad Movies Ever Made, in The Official Razzie Movie Guide.

    Too many people use them like door bells.

    I remember people would get a Lexus horn and install in other Toyotas. Think it was from is300 maybe? Been a long time. Do people still do Lexus to Toyota horn swaps? My 08 sienna and 15 prius could both use a boost.

    It’s a fun horn. You can hold onto the horn and not scare the living crap out of drivers when they are stopped in front of you and the light turned green 3 secs ago, it doesn’t make you sound impatient or a jerk.

    Some places in the world have dual-level horn, regular plus a courtesy beep. England? (n)
