    just wire an external speaker to the pc so you can play whatever you like through it, it was a standard socket on most CB radios, so you could use em as a PA system. depends where you are as to whats legal to play though.

    You could wire it so that when you honk your horn, a display on your grill says "Move that piece of ****!" Backwards of course, so they can read it.

    Everytime, you swear in your car the horn beeps.. so if someone cuts you off "F**K You A**H**E!" the computer gets the voice recognition and honks the horn...

    i believe its a diaphram that you pass a specific amount of voltage thru and thus it resonates at its given frequencey creating a harmonic waveform. that is audible to us humans

    Some are diaphragm-driven, as previously suggested. These are the ones that most compact cars have. The "roadrunner" beep. Others, that sound almost like trains, that can be found in large sedans and pickups, are air-driven.

    If you apply higher or lower voltage to the diaphragm version, it ceases to resonate properly, and usually won't make a sound other than a weird metallic tick when you hit the horn. These types of horns have small adjustment screws on them, since as they get older, they wear down, and have to have their "flap limit" adjusted to compensate.
    Adjusting the voltage to the air-driven types doesn't change the sound too much. You might get a slightly lower- or higher-pitched honk out of them, but the motor inside will burn out much more quickly.

    There are digital versions of horns (all after-market) and some air-driven ones that you can adjust their pitch and sound. Nothing stock is too adjustable, although if you really want to scare the bejesus out of someone, get like four of the air-driven ones and mount them under the hood of a Civic. Instant freakout!
