9: Musical Car Horns
There was a period during the ’80s where musical car horns were popular. We’re not sure why someone would want an obscene horn like this. Nevertheless, there was an abundance of musical car horns in existence. For the short period that they were popular consumers went for the standard tunes that you’d expect. There was nothing like sounding like an ice cream truck coming down the block.
Musical horns went away quietly although from time to time you’ll still see a music horn. Generally, these are reserved for parade vehicles and floats. Still, it’s cool to look back and reminisce on a time when the automotive industry was changing. There were so many unique options during the ’80s that cars were truly personalized.
