The horn is dead on my '86 GL 4WD wagon. It feels dangerous to me to be without a horn. I want a brand new one because I hate the sound that the original makes (made). Always sounded like a duck with a bad speech impediment.

I will have all the electrical stuff checked out before installing a new one, but I was wondering if someone here would be so kind as to point me to a relplacement horn on the Internet that I could order. I want a horn that doesn't sound wimpy, an authoritative-sounding horn, a macho horn.

There are some for my year & model at RockAuto.com. Any suggestions as to which one I should go with?

I'm a girl and I have airhorns from good ol' Harbor Freight on 2 of my Subies.

They rock! Easy to install, cheap. What else could you want? ;)
