    take a high and low pitch horn, wire them on opposite sides of a relay, and put a flasher in. it might give you the sound you are after

    I have never heard one switch back and forth , high and low like that on any factory application for a GM car...

    Some air horns have cycling like that. That's how they create musical air horns like on the General Lee.

    Sounds a lot like the horns that were in my old '39 Standard............they came from a '50's Thunderbird.

    German and various other European police horns are like that. And...I believe JC Whirney had a horn modeled on that...they had a LOT of novelty horns.

    I wonder of that relay could be made into a flame thrower. I have had bad luck with the quality if those.

    Did anyone ever figure out how to make a set of horns like the ones I was asking about?
