Bull Air Horns

Post  OSR on Tue Dec 15, 2009 1:18 pm

Can anyone who has one of the air horns fitted that sound like a mooing cow, do me a huge favour and let me know who they are made by and if possible a part/model number. Mum and Dad have said they'll get me one for an xmas pressie but I'm struggling to find one that sounds good and doesn't cost 100+
Ta muchly, Charlie

We all bought them from Midland Wheel Supplies at the kit car shows a few years ago. So give them a call if you want to join the 'in' crowd.

ANORAK ALERT

FWIW, the Bull Horn from airhorns.co.uk has a mechanism more or less like a normal electric horn, except that the normally screw-adjustable contacts are cable-operated. The Midland Wheels version is similar only cam-operated.

Incidentally the Midland Wheels version has a plastic body rivetted to the metal bracket: not trusting this to endure the rigours of bouncing around off road, I added a bit of extra support. No problems yet.

If anyone else wants to get one post up here by the end of next week. If there's enough interest I'll give Midland Wheels a call and see if I can negotiate a discount

Frozen cows

Post  Martin & Nettie on Fri Feb 12, 2010 6:52 pm

A farmer goes out to his field one morning only to find all of his cows frozen solid. As far as the eye can see are cows, motionless like
statues. It had been a cold night, but he'd never thought anything like this would happen. The situation then dawned on him. With his entire livestock gone, how would he make ends meet? How would he feed his wife and kids? How would he pay the mortgage? He sat with his head in his hands, trying to come to terms with his impending poverty. Just then, an elderly woman walked by, "What's the matter?" asked the old lady. The farmer gestured toward the frozen cows and explained his predicament to the woman. Without hesitation the old woman smiled and began to rub one of the cows noses. After a few seconds the cow began to twitch and was soon back to normal and chewing the cud. One by one the old woman defrosted the cows until the whole field was full of healthy animals.
The farmer was delighted and asked the woman what she wanted as a repayment for her deed. She declined his offer and walked off across the field.
A passer-by who had witnessed the whole thing approached the farmer. "You know who that was don't you?" asked the passer-by.
"No" said the farmer "who?"
