I need help to make a car air horn that plays the Imperial March? Answered

 I don't want an electric mp3 horn, I want it to be similar to the horn on the General Lee.  Is there a way I can modify an already existing air horn set up? 

Thanks in advance

If you have a separate solenoid valve for each of the individual horns, then you could do it by programming a microcontroller (like an Arduino or Picaxe) to trigger each valve for the right amount of time, in the right order.

A real old-school engineer could probably work out a purely mechanical solution, akin to a music box where the turning cylinder has pins to trigger each valve in turn.
