Default I want a Hi Performance horn...almost squished

I was driving to work this AM on the freeway and was about squished between a bus coming onto the freeway and a big rig on my left. The bus just kept coming over and forcing me into the truck beside me and apprently couldn't hear my wimpy horn or something. I had to slam on my brakes on the freeway to avoid becoming the meat in a metal sandwich.

Since this morning I have been wondering if there is anything that is loud like a big rig horn that would get peoples' attention when it went off that I could put on my car. I have condsidered adding the second horn but I am not sure how much louder that would be. I know there are some aftermarket euro type horns that are pretty loud but nothing gets your attnetion like one of those big truck horns. When they go off, EVERYONE looks around.

Any thoughts?

How about an Airhorn attached to the roof? Done right it could look pretty cool!

I don't know if anything is louder than a good airhorn, maybe there's a model that will mount under the hood of the PT?

I'm with you, I can fart louder than the GT's horn. I'm thinking about a Viper horn or a Ricer car horn, maybe a Neon's, but I haven't heard one yet. D-C is such a cheap bunch of B*stards, to me the lack of a loud horn is a safety issue- hell, this isn't NY City.
