The Car Horn Organ

Wendy Mae Chambers invented the Car Horn Organ in 1983. The instrument is comprised of 25 car horns operated by a homemade keyboard and powered by a car battery charger. The car horns were selected with a pitch pipe and purchased from junk yards, with the exception of the Cadillac C-Trumpet and the "ahooogah" horn which were purchased new.
Her signature tune is "New York, New York" (will open RP audio) which she first performed at the opening of the New York City Car Show at the Coliseum for the then Mayor, Ed Koch.
