These folks have really cool old world bike horns; Parts and Accessories - Rideable Bicycle Replicas They are huge and surprisingly loud, but don't think loud enough to be heard in a car.

Google came up with this, looks like it would work for our needs, Ultra Loud Bicycle Air Horn - Truck Siren Sound (120dB) [E18132] :, Buy DVD, Shop for PC accessories, Discount MP3 Players, Bargain Deal for Surveillance Equipment, Cheap R4 for NDS, X-sim Unlock
