I was on the paved area below the orange balloon just east of the food vendors. You should of brought yours. My buddy always goes with me and brings his cj7. Saturday he arrived later and didn't get a good spot up front next to mine. On Friday we were both up front and there were a couple early 70's Broncos too.
Later Saturday a lady representing Daytona "Jeep Beach" week stopped by and handed us brochure's for next years event. She said the event will be better organized as it's being handled by a new group of organizers. She said it got too big for the club that originally ran it. I told her we used to go but the event featured mostly newer stuff and had become very scattered. She said they're going to try to group older and newer stuff. We'll see...
Howdy folks! During the Turkey Rod Run I picked up a set, well actually 2 sets of vintage air horns from the flea market. They look to be from the 50s or 60s. Just got thru installing a set in the Jeep. This set was branded for Sears and made in Italy. Cleaned em up, lubed the compressor and holy cow they're LOUD! I wired them in parallel with the electric horns. They fit perfectly behind the headlights one on each side. It's hard to hide stuff on a Jeep but for the most part the set-up is not too noticeable.
I just finished the install tonight so I can only bump the horn button since it's in the garage. Tomorrow I'll roll it out and give em the "Stop texting and drive!" test. The other set I picked up is meant for foreign cars as it's made by Maserati. I'll put those in my 300zxtt.
Well it does have a unique sound. The electric horns sound immediately and the air horns come in about 2 seconds later. The compressor lags so it takes a couple seconds to spin up and then Holy Moly! I love it
