    Found this today

    I was out and about today and I ran across this old Oooh Gah horn. It was on the bottom shelf of an antique store. It works just fine and is very loud. Does anyone know what kind of horn this is, for which car. It is older because it is hand operated.

    David,
    It's called a Klaxon horn.
    They were generally mounted under the floorboards on Model T's, etc.
    That actuator button/lever was foot-operated.
    They enjoyed a resurgence in the 1950's the cars (we) kids drove back in the day.

    Now that looks cool.

    I think that would be a great present for small children.
